Fall is in the air, and with it, my desire to curl up on the couch with a hot mug of tea, my fuzzy white blanket, and a good book has definitely arrived. If I could run down to a book shop this afternoon after work, these are the two titles I'd pick up. I haven't read either of them, but I want to... I plan to... whenever I can get my hands on a copy.
But even though I'm learning a lesson in delayed gratification, you probably don't have to... both of these books are out there today; ready to be brought home and made your own.
Somewhere More Holy: Stories from a Bewildered Father, Stumbling Husband, Reluctant Handyman, and Prodigal Son by Tony Woodlief
(I know very little about this book, but the excerpt I read was beautifully written and full of raw honesty and grace... I think it will be a good one.)
Message from an Unknown Chinese Mother by Xinran
(OK, so this one is only available on Kindle right now. This doesn't look like a "feel-good" book, but it does look like a book of truth spoken in love. A book that book that perhaps will deepen our perspectives and understanding of one another.)
If you're so inclined to purchase either of these books right away, clicking on the above links should send a portion of your sale to NDFH. I think I did it right. :)
