Thanksgiving Makes Me Slow

I've now found at least two different books to read (and more than that if I like them... they both in a series). I'm thinking that reading classics is great and Christianity books are also wonderful, but I could also seize this opportunity to read some pop culture phenomenon books.

So I've added "The Hunger Games" and "Twilight" to my list. I know, English majors, it kills my soul a little as well. But I still think it's important. I mean, there aren't that many great American writers anyway. We've got Mark Twain... and probably the next best thing is Ann Rice. So in order to get my fast food literature fix, I decided to nab these two. Besides that, Jordan says that his students are absolutely going gaga over "The Hunger Games" and since he doesn't have time to read it, I should and explain it to him.

You never know, I may grow really fond of them.

In other news, I'm setting a decent pace on my next book, "Searching for God Knows What" by Donald Miller. For those of you living in a hole with wifi, he penned "Blue Like Jazz," which, basically, set the Christian world aflame in a million different ways. I was pretty certain that I was going to marry him when I was in 8th grade, no joke. He presents really difficult questions in such simple ways... such as, "How can a Christian be a pacifist?" or "How can a Christian not think that America is better than anything else in the world?" He's really delightful and I'm really enjoying my read. I'm hoping to get through with it tonight. I've got to pick up my feet because I'm never going to get through this list if I don't.
