I finished book #2 for the year (Garlic and Sapphires) – see my list to the right for my brief thoughts (basically, it was awesome and yummy ). I’m still reading The Pact (it’s not the happiest book, so I find myself kinda avoiding it sometimes), and I’ll probably start another one tonight – maybe A Circle of Quiet (Madeline L’Engle), which I bought at Edward McKays this weekend with Alisa and the girls. I’ve always wanted to read more of her non-fiction, I just never got around to it, so I’m excited to start reading this 4-part series about her life. I still need more non-fictions suggestions, so I’m open to suggestions! What are your favorites? Theology? Science? Film?
I got to spend a few hours with my brother this week – he actually came all the way up to Winston (we were going to meet halfway between Charlotte and here, but he beat me out of church), and we had some lunch and saw ‘The Good Shepher’, Matt Damon and Angelina Jolie’s new movie about the beginnings of the CIA. It was well-done I thought, but very confusing for me – I tried to pay attention, but still ended up not quite grasping the ending. It might help to see it again (and maybe on the small screen where you can stop and rewind if you miss something), but this seems to be a trend in the movies I see with Matthew (see: The Fountain). I think next time we’ll go with a brainless comedy, ok Macks?
