« The Lion Sleeps Tonight | Main | Another bold move from Apple »

April 07, 2006



A little change.....can do you good. Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

The move to the boards, while more restrictive in books, might draw a few lurkers into posting and stir up some good dialogue. It's been a neat thing to be a part of, this book club but I know that I've struggled with the whole discussing it part lately.

As far as this month, what about having a good send off to the boards by selecting an "out there" author that we haven't read in the club yet?

As far as the May '04 thing, sorry man. Then again, I'm kinda not. I found Walking On Water here. If you only knew what that book has started.


Interesting you mentioned L'Engle. My ten year old son and I just travelled to the Oregon Coast for spring break, and we listened to A Wrinkle In Time all the way down there. He loved it, and went down to the library right afterward so that he could borrow it and read it for himself. It's fun to see your own kids get involved in books that you remember as a child.


Donald Miller, please.


I would have to say Donald Miller has been my favorite so far. I just finished To Own a Dragon. Great book!!


Don Miller was my favorite. My vote most definitely goes towards "Searching for God Knows What". Since I read it, I can't stop talking about it. I've been telling everyone about it. It was better than "Blue Like Jazz" for me, and Blue Like Jazz changed my life.

However, I also liked "How the Irish Saved Civilization", and CS Lewis will always be my favorite author of all time.

Big move, over to the MBs. That means millions of voices will be joining us...

My Two Cents? Miller. I read some of Blue Like Jazz to my Dad, who rated Fundamentalist / Reformed Evangelical in your little "What's Your Theological World View Quiz" a few months back (remember that?) and he just loved it. Keeps you reasonably comfortable but kicks up enough stuff to make you think good and hard about things.

Actually, now that I think about it, I'm actually quite surprised that my Dad even took that quiz... Maybe it's all that Reading-Donald-Miller-At-Him.


Miller has become my favorite writer. I just picked up THROUGH PAINTED DESERTS.
Meeting him in Nashville last weekend was a life highlight for me!

I would love to have abother L'Engle book. She is amazing. That is all.


L'Engle has been my favorite author so far. But then again, so have C.S. Lewis and Donald Miller. Have you read the newest one out by Miller?

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
