a good read

I happened upon a new author the other day and discovered  that not only do I really enjoy his books but I also really like his blog.  The author’s name is Donald Miller; he wrote Blue Like Jazz which sold over a million copies.  After the first few chapters of trying to figure out what kind of a book it was, I got really hooked.  It’s quirky and funny and heart warming all in one.  What I love about Blue Like Jazz is how honest Miller is about Christianity.  He writes things in the book that I have often felt, and I was glad he was brave enough to say it out loud.

Recently Miller wrote A Million Miles in a Thousand Years.    I ordered it on amazon the other day and it just arrived last week.  I let it sit on my desk for a few days, but the book was really calling to me so I’ve started reading it this morning.  The first page gave me goosebumps.  I’m really looking forward to reading more.

    Hey Bonnie,
    I did not realize you are a writer! I always wanted to do that one day but never got around it. 🙂 Oh well. I really would like to write childrens books but that is another story. I looooove Donald Miller. I really think that his book Blue like Jazz really hits on something in our society. Anyway, I enjoy reading his books. 🙂 Glad you like him too.

      Hi Dagmar! I’ve always loved to write, only recently considered trying to get published. It’s quite the process! You should go for it with the Chilren’s book writing – I bet you have some great stories to tell! 🙂 Yes, Donald Miller is one of my favorites – I recommend him to everyone. I love your blog! I will visit often!
