The Shack

I just read a really cool book on my really cool Kindle. Have you seen this thing? It shows pages just like a book, but you can simply download books on within seconds. It stores like 10,000 books and it has little gadgets on it that you can do stuff with like write notes, etc... It's fun. It makes it super easy to read a book while on the treadmill and you can listen to audio books too.

Anyway, the first book I downloaded was The Shack. I loved it. I highly recommend it. It has shifted the way I view God. I don't want to give any of the plot away because there are some really juicy surprises in it. Let's just say, the end justifies the means.

So if you are looking for a good read that makes you think about how you relate to God- read it.

Happy New Year!

Thanks for the recommendation, Maria. I'll have to pick this one up.

BTW, how do you like your Kindle. Is it like reading from a screen (that gives me a headache)? It seems like a neat thing, how much are the book downloads from Amazon?

I love the idea of Kindle, but the price is still up there. Can you get free downloads from the library for Kindle, or do you have to buy everything from Amazon?

My current read is Miriam Rockness' A Time to Play, and I'm really loving it! I've never had the chance to read any of her books before, but I was perusing the library shelves yesterday to find one...this one is great! I hate that they are out of print. This one is so timeless, I think it will always be relevant.

I got The Shack for Christmas and plan to start reading it soon. I don't have a Kindle, but they look really cool. Enjoy your new toy :)!

My uncle recommended The Shack when I saw him last week--it must be good if you're talking about it too! Thanks, I will check it out!
