    What is the last book you've read?

    I've been reading up a storm and I'm currently busy with a book by Bill Bryson. The one before that was the well-known book "Who Stole My Cheese?"  The book literally took me about 30 minutes to read but the ideas expressed in it changed my view on life completely!  It's amazing how books can influence our perspectives on the world.  What was the last book you read and how did it influence you?

    The last book I read was The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. Must say quite an emotional book and has words of wisdom from the author. Truly inspirational too.

    Amazing book, highly recommended.

    Kiss of a Demon King by Kresley Cole. Wonderful book by a great author. Her books keep getting better and better. Lothaire was the best, and is the newest, by far.

    I just finished Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. The whole Hunger Games trilogy was very well written. I thoroughly enjoy authors who don't pull punches. I want to be shocked and surprised by a book, while at the same time understanding why the author made the choices she did. I still find myself thinking back on the storyline with appreciation.

    The last book I read was Summer Rental by Mary Kay Andrews.  It's a great about the importance of friendship, learning to let love in after you've been hurt and having to courage to fight for yourself. It was my first time reading anything by Andrews and I was definitely happy I picked up.  I'm looking forward to checking out more of her books.

    Aside from God's Word, which I read everyday, I read "I Kissed Dating Goodbye" by Joshua Harris.  He gives us God's design for true romance and gives us practical advice for relationships.  It is a must read for singles!
