I finished Choke yesterday and Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist today. These are both movies I have seen in the last two weeks. I liked the book ending of Choke better and N&N was a bit melodramatic at times but I still enjoyed it very much. Easy, happy read.

Now I don't know what to read. The next few books on my the bookself I'm really not in the mood for. I bought Brisingr the day after it was released and I'm just not in the mood for something in fantasy land. I finally read Anansi Boys two weeks ago after buying it the week it was released and sitting on it for two years.

I'm really in the mood for some Tim O'Brien or Michael Ondaatje but I really need to NOT buy anymore books. I own enough. Maybe Jarhead?

Ignore the title of this post. It's a JM lyric.

I have been watching it for the last 10 minutes. A little sad? Maybe. I miss my boyfriend.

JM LYRICS! I don't have the new CD yet, but I have heard nothing but amazingnes -- then again I don't think that Andrew can fail in anything he does. What a little fart.

A book to read? Hmm.. Have you ever read the book Blue Like Jazz? I have read it now three times. I love it.

Re: This is so fricking hot:
Blue Like Jazz is the second book by Donald Miller. This semi-autobiographical work, subtitled "Non-Religious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality," is a collection of essays and personal reflections chronicling the author's growing understanding of the nature of God and Jesus, and the need and responsibility for an authentic personal response to that understanding. Much of the work centers on Miller's experiences with friends and fellow students while attending Reed College, a liberal arts college in Portland, Oregon.

The book's popularity is due to its personable style and content which most appeals to twentysomething and thirtysomething, post-modern Christians in the emerging church movement. His writings have often been compared to fellow Christian memoirist, Anne Lamott.

It really doesn't give him enough credit. When I thought of the full "christian book" it seemed extremely boring, but he has a way with words, and I have read other books including Searching for God Knows What, which is also very good to read.
I won't feel offended if you don't want to read it, but I think it is a good read :)
The best thing about this is the chapters really aren't related, so it is something you can pick up and read and put back down and pick up later on to continue.

Re: This is so fricking hot:
You know me, if I'm told to read something I'll read it. I decided on Jarhead 'cause I'm kinda in the mood for a war book. That's an...... odd..... feeling, but once you read Tim O'Brien it's hard to not fall in love.

Re: This is so fricking hot:
Let me know when/if you read it. I want to know your viewpoint on it :)

Blue Like Jazz that is.
