Two More Books!

I finished two more books for my A-Z challenge. Having the Kindle got me excited to focus on reading and see how I like it electronically (so far: love it)!

I read a W book: The Wolf at Twilight by Kent Nerburn. Actually I had read this book last year, but it was so fantastic that I decided to read it again. And I still love it and think it is fantastic! This book, and it's predecessor, Neither Wolf Nor Dog, should be on everyone's must-read list!!! I can't say enough about how moving these books are: so full of wisdom, tenderness, human trauma and pain along with healing, hope, and laughter. Just absolutely fab.u.lous. FABULOUS! They are worth purchasing and keeping on your bookshelf for years and reading more than once. And giving as gifts to friends near and far. Have I said enough good things about them yet? If not, ask me questions, and I'll be glad to tell you more! LOL.

Then I read an O book. It was the first Kindle book I've read -- The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore. Two guys with the same name grow up in Baltimore. One (the author), despite early life struggles, manages to go to college and becomes a Rhodes scholar to Oxford in England. The other ends up in prison for life. Very interesting juxtaposition of the two lives. It really made me think of how important it is to touch people's lives and give them some hope!!! We can't think of people as "throw-away" people! There is way too much of that in today's world.

Reading it on my Kindle was FUN! I'm liking my new toy.

I've thought of a Kindle too. Wondering if you can buy books for it at your sister's store?

I love my Kindle, too. The only downside is I can't then give a book I have just read to someone else. But, so easy to carry and a little TOO easy to buy new books!

I've just read Hot Six, which isn't in your progress, but I've never laughed so hard while reading a book here at the cottage.Janet Evanovich is so straght looking in her photos and the woman is totally whacked when writing.
And an anniversary to add to the joys of having a family!
