Due Back...

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. -C.S Lewis

The Four Loves by C.S Lewis. Good book (of course! C.S Lewis!). I especially thought the chapter on friendship was interesting. He always has such a simple yet deep way of looking at things.

20 and Counting by Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar. I've enjoyed their show on TLC since it started and I waited for months for our library to finally get a copy of their book. It is worth reading this book just to hear how they live debt-free and the incredible stories that go along with that.

Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. I could not put this book down, it was so good! Funny, just like all her books.

The Departed by Kathryn Mackel. This wasn't too bad. It had enough weird for me to enjoy it.

Love Someone by Delilah. This was written by the radio host Delilah who I listen to all the time (one of the few stations we pick up clearly in our house). I really loved when she writes about her mom teaching her to sew. She shares a lot about her own life, which is pretty interesting (she has adopted seven children) and she also shares stories of some of her listeners.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. Another blogger recommended this YA author so I thought I would try one of her books. It was very good, I'm surprised I had never heard of her before. I loved the characters, and the very slow building, subtle romance.

The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen. I enjoyed her other book so much, I thought I would try another one. The two books were very similar in plot and characters, but this one was also good.
