I’ve had New York Times bestseller, "The Shack" by William P. Young recommended to me by people who said it changed their lives, so I decided it was time I read it and learned what the buzz was all about. The book is a fictional account of a man whose young daughter is murdered, and then several years later he gets a letter inviting him to spend a weekend with God (portrayed as a black woman who goes by the name of "Papa") in the shack in which the murder took place. They say that "The Shack" is like cilantro – either you love it or you hate it. I know a lot of people have found it very helpful, but I just found it weird. I’ve written a full review on my own blog for anyone who wants to know more, but I didn't give it very many stars.
On a brighter note, I got an email from the library telling me that it's finally my turn to read "Simple Prosperity" by David Wann. I read just enough pages the last time I borrowed it from the library (and had to return it before I had a chance to read more) that I am really looking forward to it!
Hope your reading this week was better than mine. We leave on our camping trip Saturday, so please add your new book reviews, etc. in the comments by Friday afternoon and I'll add them to the Bookworm before I leave. Thanks!
