And sometimes, I'm reading an 1,100 page book.
Recently, it's been a case of Both Those Things.
It's fitting that Kristin became my Lenten reading. It's a stunning novel -- an epic, really. And it is radiant and blazing with the mercy and glory of God.
Please forgive me, all you anti-dog-earers, but sometimes I just can't help myself. I don't keep pen and sticky-notes handy when I'm reading. I try, I fail. So I dog-ear, then later I go back and copy down all the quotes I want to keep, savor, remember.
I couldn't really dog ear the entire book, but sometimes I thought I'd come close:
Kristin deserves so much more than a quick blog post, and I'll work on that. But I decided this quick post was better than nothing. Make Kristin your Easter reading. Make it your summer reading. Make it your I-Will-Read-It-Before-the-End-of-2015 reading. Make the time -- it's worth the time, in so many ways.
Commenting over at Facebook, too.
