Usually, at any given time, I have at least three or four books going. Bookmarked or dog-eared, these volumes seem to find their way into my nightstand, my book bag or my beach tote. Most often, a half-read book also appears between the two front seats of my car, just in case I have a few moments during my “Mom’s Taxi” runs.
To me, a good book is like a sturdy snack. Whether I head for the barn, the beach or the backyard, I will not set out without a stack of reading material.
Besides devotional reading, professional development materials and current periodicals, I am digging into The Shack, by William P. Young. Several friends and family members have recommended this story, so I am beginning to page through it. Check back, if you want to find out how I liked it.
