What book have you read in the last six months that has really stayed with you? Why?
Definitely Animal, Vegetable, Miracle written by Barbara Kingsolver and family. I am absolutely more conscientious about where my food comes from. Now, am I doing anything about it? Well, in a word: no. BUT, I have big plans and in my defense I am putting a lot of energy into just keeping it together over here and it is hard to begin your focus on eating local produce in mid-January.
One thing I have done, is made pizza from scratch - VERY fun - and I have plans to do that again very soon.
What is one of your favorite childhood books?
The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton: Thanks to my son I have had new reason to read this great book although he does not stand for me just sitting there and losing myself in the pictures... that day will come, I hope. He is really more into Katy the Snowplow and Mary Anne the Steam Shovel (and her buddy Mike Mulligan, of course).
Do you have a favorite book of the Bible? Do tell!
What is one book you could read again and again?
Is there a book you would suggest for Lenten reading? What is it and why?
Well, except for the fact that I heard he is recently touring his book again in a similar pattern as the Purpose Driven hubbub - and for some reason that bothers me - I would say Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline.
