books

I am not a multi-tasker but I do tend to be a multi-reader. Juggling several books at one time is not unusual for me.  Although I’ve just started them, the two newest editions to my collection promise to be good reads!
Donald Miller
Donald Miller begins A Million Miles In A Thousand Years proposing how “the saddest thing about life is you don’t remember half of it.” I for one agree with him. Yet every life is a story worth telling because every life has meaning and purpose.  Miller is given a unique opportunity to literally edit his own story.

Markus Zusak

Markus Zusak opens his NY times bestseller, The Book Thief, by asserting “a small fact – you are going to die.” At this point, all I know is – Death is his story’s narrator.

    Have read “The Book Thief” and found it very thought provoking. It will be interesting to see what you think….have read all of Donald Miller’s books but this one-anxious to read it. Happy reading!

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
