41 books finished in 2013: Glorious Ruin

books finished in 2013

Why are you reading this book?
It was a recommendation from my counselor! She knows how much I love having homework.

What is the first line?
There is a temptation in writing a book about suffering to romanticize one’s struggles or, worse, to insensitively rank and compare trials, as if victimhood were a matter of one-upmanship.

Describe the book in haiku form:
attempting to find
“God hidden in suffering.”
hard work continues

What will you do with it now?
keep for reference
x keep and loan out to friends x
keep to read again & again & again
post to paperbackswap.com
throw it away

Anything else you’d like to say?
I have thoughts, but none of them are coherent. (Many failed attempts.)
