Dear BNJ: I was looking for something on Google and found a link to your Shelfari. Thank you so much for your recommendation about Girl Soldier. I am thrilled that it was a blessing and an inspiration to you.
I am afraid that I don't keep up with Shelfari very well, except to try to organize the books I've read on the shelves! But it is a great service.
Take care, and God bless, Faith McDonnell
Hello! I'm new to looking at other's recommendations, so it was interesting to follow this book (You Can Go Home Again) and find someone at Covenant Seminary! A friend of mine used to be in the development office there and now is president of Food for the Hungry. Small world. I look forward to seeing what else is on your shelf. . .
I love your list too! I hear you about the lack of time and the dirth of exciting reading material. I want to run away to Africa or India, never watch TV again, and instead work & talk & cook & take care of my kids & read good books. I know I don't have to run away to Africa to do it, it just sometimes seems like an easier solution.... :) We are doing pretty well, just making our way day by day. I hope you all are well too. Give Hunter a big hug for me.
I did like Eat, Pray, Love. Not one of my all time favorites, but it was good. I saw her interviewed on Oprah which was interesting and added to the experience of having read her book.
The "shack" in my picture... I have no idea where that even is! It was just a picture from my computer and I haven't gone back in to change it!! : )
