Just Read

home by MR

Home by Marilynne Robinson

I have to post about it because it has now entered my top 5 books
which is a pretty high honor.
Im sure Marilynne will feel her life is complete.

It's about family
a wayward son
a religious father overwhelmed with guilt and questions
and a sister trying to make sense of it all.

For me a great book
challenges my ideas.
It makes me want to try harder at life
and my relationships with others.
It also lets me escape.
Thats why I love Paulo Coelho and C.S. Lewis.
And now, Marilynne Robinson.

EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS.

Your top 5?!

Alright, I'll put this on my "books to read once I graduate and never have to read a text book again in my life" list. :)

I miss you and Ginger. Bet she wishes she could kick me again.

I'll have to read up on it. I need to pick a book for our next book club.

Life as Ashley said...

Ha! I totally remember when I had the attitude Whitney did. I went a good year or two without books after I had graduated college. I was so booked-out that I didn't even want to see one.

My turn to pick a book for bookclub is coming up. Guess which one I will pick now? :)

Hope all is well with the Treeses and baby Ko-log-knee. :)

Hello Alexis,
Nice to meet you! First off, no matter what- a digital SLR is going to break the bank, a bit. Mostly likely leave it smoking too. But I have deemed the purchase worth it. Mostly because of chubby cheeked offspring. Even if I had to trade in their college education to get it. They'll understand later, right?

I have a Nikon D80. Which I love. It gives me great pictures. I wanted something that I could grow on as a photographer but that would also be a good friend to me right from the beginning. I also highly recommend a nice lens to go with it. Don't bother with the kit lens it comes with. They are almost always sub par. Just buy the body of the camera and select a nice lens that will best fit your needs.

If you have any more questions just let me know! Happy shopping!
