DON'T HATE ME BECAUSE I'M BEAUTIFUL
A HECKUVA GOOD TIME
DEBUTANTE OF THE YEAR
- David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants
THE YEAR OF:
- Jane Austen
- C.S. Lewis
- Japanese Catholics
This one I'll explain. The Japanese Catholics and Jane Austen served to make me regularly mindful that I must be mindful of how I treat others.
Meanwhile, I not only read C.S. Lewis's space trilogy, but began working my way through audiobooks of his theological writing. I'd read Mere Christianity recently but never his other nonfiction. These not only served as practical devotionals but also overlapped with Jane Austen and the Japanese Catholics in how I lived and, interestingly, how I understood the other books in my ken.
It's not a combination I'd have known to choose but one that I am sincerely grateful I fell into. I guess God not only looks out for fools but for those grabbing books at random off of shelves.
