Day 14: Nonfiction Book

I rarely read two books at one time.  It’s hard for me to keep up with story lines.

Heck, it’s hard for me to keep up with general household information (read: correctly calling my offspring by their given names instead of their brothers’ names.  Or my brother’s name.)

Moving on….

Cold Tangerines, by Shauna Niequist has been a great read introduced to me by my friends at The Mom-tage.

Click over there and you will see yours truly and sweet little Frog on the header.

This book could not come at a better time, for 2010 has been topsy turvy for us.  From dealing with the aftermath of a death in the family, having a newborn (read: no sleep), illnesses in Frog, typical day to day stresses, etc.  The list could go on and on.

Cold Tangerines is helping me put things in perspective.

Life with God at its core is about giving your life up to something bigger and more powerful.  It’s about saying at every turn that God knows better than we know, and that his Spirit will lead us in ways that we couldn’t have predicted. -Shauna Niequist


Day 15 is actually today.

I am supposed to write about a fanfic.

What IS a fanfic?!?

I’ll be skipping that one.

    I’m not an expert by any means, BUT…
    Since Day 13 was a fictional book, and Day 14 was a non-fictional book. I’m going to guess that “fanfic” stands for fantasy fiction. So talk about a fantasy fiction book that you like… or maybe in the event that you don’t like any, talk about the lack of fantasy fiction novels on your bookcase. And the rising level of dust that occupies the empty space where fantasy fiction books would go if you had any. That ought to be interesting. 🙂

    Well now that makes sense. I still won’t be touching this one–not my favorite genre. Hey wait a minute…did you see the rising level of dust on my bookshelves when you were babysitting last night?!? 🙂
