The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity
"I am listening to this in the car.  A really unusual story featuring a tale made up of the authors talks with God.  The protagonist meets "God" at the shack where his young daughter was killed.  God apears as 3 humans.  God is an overweight older black woman.  The holy spirit is an oriental slight younger woman.  Jesus is himself.  A treatise on relationships not religion."

92 Pacific Boulevard (A Cedar Cove Novel)
"Released 8/25.  I read the first 6 chapters on 8/26.  The Cedar Cove novels are released at a rate on 1 per year.  The street address indicates the number the book is in the series.  My favorite way to read them is reading 1/12th of the novel each month, so it's like I visit with the characters each month, so I don't have to wait a year until the next book is released."

Padre Island: A Novel
Padre Island: A Novel
"Easiest book to put down I ever read!  Only 151 pgs but it took days to read & I am here in South Padre Island, a town at the southern tip of Padre Island!  I kept reading because it included some interesting facts about the history of the island & the national park service when Padre Island first became a national seashore & a park was established on North PI. Not very well written or edited."
