Happy April! April is a big month for our household. We moved into our new home one year ago on Saturday; we were married three years ago on the 8th. It's most likely (though not going by today) the start of spring, which we love. I've just started a new book, so I'm not ready to post about it yet. So, I'm going to steal from Bending Bookshelf, and make mention of what I was reading one year ago this month.
The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible
A.J. Jacobs is a very funny man. He writes side-splitting pieces for Esquire and has brought his humor to readers with books The Know It All and The Year of Living Biblically. I remember this book fondly. His growing of a beard, driving his wife insane with his new rules, trying to figure out how "Thou Shall Not Lie" works when you have a toddler. Hilarious stuff - plus you learn a little something, too.
Middlesex is a book that sticks with you, which is why I called it The One that Still Has Me Thinking in my year-end countdown in December. The book was beautifully written, though sometimes hard to read. It was a quick read, yet so very descriptive. The story was heartwarming, yet heartbreaking. And it left me wondering, "Did I like it? Yeah, I liked it. But, how much did I like it? I think I liked it a lot." I'm still asking myself those questions a year later.
Think back. What were you reading last spring?
