Just finished "Power of One". Best book I've read in a very long time.

My SIL recommended that to me a long time ago but I still haven't read it.

I am now reading The Son by Phillipp Meyer. I started it quite a while ago and then got distracted with other things. It is a good book but I think what confused me at the time is that there are three different characters and three different time periods and I still don't exactly know how that fits together. I feel like I missed something in the beginning. It is well written and interesting, but I am hoping it makes sense when I figure out what ties the three things together.

That's the actual paper book.

On my Kindle I am dipping into an amplified Bible and I can thoroughly see the advantage of a Kindle for that. It's so easy to look up verses that relate back to where one is reading and even to see what Wikipedia has to say about something. Aside from the oft mentioned ability to carry books easily with you, Bible-reading on a Kindle is probably the only book where I can see a definite advantage over a paper book.

I am listening to Help Thanks Wow by Anne Lamotte. I didn't mean to be listening to it - I meant to be reading it except I must have had slippery fingers when I was clicking my way through my Amazon order. It is sort of funny though because I have always liked Anne Lamotte books on audio because she reads them herself so I feel like I "know" her. Like we are friends, sort of. I don't always agree with her spiritual philosophies, but I agree more often than I don't and I really just like her taking her time to read to me.

I finished Paper Towns by John Green. It was enjoyable in that I love the kids' personalities and cleverness and interactions, but the far-fetched story didn't do much for me. It certainly wasn't up to par with The Fault in Our Stars, but I still love the author's characterizations.

I finished it too. Yes, it did seem a bit far-fetched, but parts were just delightful. I really enjoy Mr. Green's writing style, but I have thought at times what teenager is this profound? I don't think anyone I knew as a teenager was that profound. Maybe I was though. But seriously, overall I very much enjoyed this book as well.
