One of our favorite "must haves" for RV life is...
The Kindle!!! (I'm also partial to my Moleskine case!)
Totally addicted and in love with this little bookshelf and its all my daughters fault!
Cayla, my ten year old is a lover of words like me and decided (when giving up her books for the move) that she wanted a kindle. Originally I asked her if we could go in together and share one but she proceeded to tell me that that was not realistic since we would be fighting for turns SO.. she ventured to purchase hers off Craigs list (with her own money) and I fell in love!
Did you know that most ALL of the classics are free? Cayla is reading her favorite author, LM Montgomery and just about all her books were downloaded for free! Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Edgar Allen Poe, free free free!!
SO... what am I reading on my beloved kindle at the moment?
L.L Barkat's God in the Yard- I first heard about L.L from her amazing blog Seedlings in Stone and after being blessed by her words I ordered this book. WoW! This is a book all about the art of seeing and accepting Fathers invitation to play. It is a book about restoring the senses. The author took a year and spent an hour each day out in her yard looking for the small things, the little details while she communed with Father. It is such a treasure! You can find it on amazon here in paperback form OR here for the kindle version! This book is written somewhat as a devotional with thoughtful questions and journaling exercises throughout, it is truly a lovely book with prose that captivates!
The husband and I are reading Donald Miller's Searching for God Knows What- We have just begun this book and I am so thrilled to dig deeper into it! Here is the kindle version. In a nutshell the purpose is that Miller is frustrated with how Christianity is "taught and practiced" as a formula to be followed and less as a relationship of falling in love. Donald states about this book, "I realized the formulaic version of Christianity was irrational, and for that matter, unbiblical. True Christian spirituality mirrors relational dynamics more than the workings of a free-market economy. This seemed to open up an entire new world to me, a world where every thought and feeling operates as a kind of living metaphor for the workings of the Godhead." We were so blessed by his last book, A Million Miles In a Thousand Years and I have a feeling that the book initiated a desire for a better story.
So.. what are you reading?
