Time for Another Book Feature!

Hey, Friends!

So, I'm mixing things up today ::oohh!:: and doing a book feature on Monday. I know! What a break with tradition!

On the way back from Bolivia I read this incredible book:



A Million Miles in 1000 Years by Donald Miller.

It really made me think.

Miller talks about our lives as stories and asks us, "what kind of stories are we writing?" He uses examples from his life and his career as a writer to make his point. So it made me think "doubly"... as a human and as a writer. Which is probably why I'm starting the week off with the feature. It's the theme for the week.

Go read this book. :0)

I'll see y'all Wednesday!

  2. Loved this book. When I think about it, I always think about that one family jumping into the water w/ all their clothes on. I want to live like that!

  9. I like Donald Miller because he always makes me think. I haven't read this one though. :)

    I love the thought that our lives are telling a story. I wonder if we incorporate the stories of our lives into our books, would we have best sellers?
