Recommended reading

Wow! I didn't realize it had been so long. I thought I'd mention a few books that I thought were worth mentioning from the last few months. (I've gotten a lot pickier about what I spend my time on lately.)

Heather Tomlinson's fairy tales are worth a look. I liked The Swan Maiden and Aurelie better than Toads and Diamonds.

Elizabeth C. Bunce's StarCrossed. What I like about this book is that what Digger believes about herself (callous, uncaring, selfish) is shown to be untrue by her actions.

Donald Miller's Searching for God Knows What. Read this book! He manages to be honest, funny, insightful and wise, sometimes all at once, as he talks about man's relationship with God (using many stories from his own life as illustrations). I want to say this book changed how I see a lot of things, but it's only been a couple months since I've read it and I really ought to give it another read to see what else it shakes up.

Madeleine L'Engle's Walking on Water. I've only just started reading this but already it's quite good. If you're an artist of any kind I suspect you'll find some wisdom here.
