readers,





why hello again.
im sorry to have been away for so long.
there is no real reason---
but im here now.
pondering two things...

the beautiful earth...
and good books.

today was the perfect day-
seventies- blue blue sky- light breeze-
so i planted a small garden.
i enjoyed getting my hands dirty
playing in the potting soil-
planting seeds- that probably wont' grow.



but i can still hope.
ill water them. rotate the pots in the sun.
and hope they will grow & produce!
just one little strawberry.
thats all i want!




so i spent a little time outside... which i hope to do tomorrow as well.

and now im inside reading.
right now im reading donald miller's recent book:
a million miles in a thousand years

its a really great one so far.
makes ya think. lets ya laugh.
enjoyable for sure.

so let me back up for a minute.
the past two days ive sat in a class.
it consisted of around 9 different lectures all about working in the emergency room in one way or another. it was so great. i really enjoyed it. im not sure if its because i LOVE the classroom?! or what. but really. i love listening, learning, and gaining knowledge. i LOVE it.
which gets me SOOOO excited about starting school-
in whats that...
FOUR MONTHS!

in 4 months my life will drastically change... and one of the biggest changes will probably be the lack of time i have to read for fun.
i love reading.... for fun. novels. chickflicks. historical books. i love it all.
so im thinking....
i have 4 months to read whatever i want!! before 3 years of no reading for fun at all.
i need a list.
i need your help.
if you only had 4 months to read ...
what would you read!!
i'd love your suggestions.
just your favorite book.
just a recommendation!
and starting NOW-
im going to try and read & read & read!



leave me a comment and tell me your favorite book!
if i get a good enough list i'll compile a big list. and start marking off the books!

....for now. its back to donald miller.

hope you all are doing superbly well.
love & peace
bort

Ditto on the Crazy Love by Francis Chan! Nathan just finished reading the Donald Miller book you are reading now. He really enjoyed it. I got the Christmas Sweater for Christmas, and it was a good one. I hope everything is going well!!

2 favorite teen fiction reads from the past year:
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Unwind by Neil Shusterman
Both are action packed, thought provoking, and super entertaining.
