Book Mail Is My Favorite!

I could not get the lighting right on this picture. My room is really dark. This was last week’s book mail.

I discovered The Write Crowd: Literary Citizenship and the Writing Life when I wrote the post about literary citizenship. The concept intrigued me, and I wanted to learn more about it. I looked up the author Lori L. May’s website, sent her a message, and she agreed to send me a review copy. I’ll be reviewing that one as soon as I finish reading.

Jacob Nordby, who wrote Blessed Are the Weird, also very graciously agreed to send me a review copy when I mentioned that I had already talked about it in my blog. I can’t even tell you how excited I am to get started reading it. I have a suspicion that Jacob might lead the way for those of us who view life through creative eyes to a new way to see our calling in the world.

Madeleine L’Engle wrote Walking on Water. I don’t know how many of you will know her books–A Wrinkle in Time might ring a bell. She comes from the Christian faith, and that’s very apparent in the description of this book. I’m drawn to books that relate any kind of spirituality to writing and creativity, so I’m excited to read this one too. It’s been recommended to me by members of my online writing group.

More book mail on the way tomorrow through UPS! I love those kinds of days! It’s like an early Christmas.

I'm a Southern girl at heart who wants to build a community of people who believe they can change the world with words like "love" and "freedom" when they become more than words, but actions in our work and our daily lives.
