Cliff and I are both doing quite a bit of wintertime reading. Last month I asked my readers for book suggestions, and Katie suggested "The Shack".
Cliff got around to reading it first. He kept asking me, "Who told you about this book? It's strange."
I'd say, "I don't know; somebody on Blogger."
So this morning I looked up that entry and found the guilty party.
I understand what the book is saying. I like the way it ended. But frankly, most of it bored me. Plus, it's hard for me to imagine God being portrayed as looking like Aunt Jemima. It's just too much stretch of the imagination for this old gal.
But you know, it's nice sometimes to read something I wouldn't ordinarily have chosen; it's good for me to get out of the box to which I usually confine myself.
Now I'm going to check out some other books my readers suggested.
The next four on my list, suggested by my loyal readers: "The Color of Water", "The Secret Life of Bees", "Autobiography of a Face", and "Pillars of the Earth". That last one was suggested by one of you, and also recommended by a co-worker of Cliff's.
