As Yummy as Pi

I love to read. Reading is one of my favorite things and it absolutely thrills me when I find a good one! I mean in the Christian book circle there are plenty of informative books and they are great, but some times it is time for a good dose of fiction/nonfiction. A tale that teaches without spelling it out. That is sweet. So I am going to make a promise: This blog is now dedicated to the persuit of good literature! New, old, profound, absurd...bring it!

Here is my first review:

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

This is one of my new favorite books! My mother-in-law gave it to me and I devoured it. The story follows a young girl on a journey of self discovery in the most unlikely of places in the deep south in the 1960s: A vibrant and mysterious home of three black women bee keepers, makers of honey. The authors skilled wordsmithing creates a vivid bigger than life place very much like the most sacred places of childhood.

As a woman, you should read this book to truly appreciate femininity. As a man, you should read it for the same reason. I was profoundly moved by this book.

I am currently reading The Life of Pi and, 20 pages into it, I am satisfied. I'll keep you posted!
