Need Something to Read This Week?

I just finished "Anansi Boys" by Neil Gaiman. A very cool modern day tall tale that was very quick and easy to read. It has a little magic, a little mystery and lots of action. Plus, it has a great ending which I always appreciate. Another book I finished while I still in San Francisco is a church book called "The Peace Giver" by James L. Ferrell. My sister sent a copy to all of our siblings because she liked it so much. This is one of the BEST books I've read in a long time. I don't read many church books from cover to cover in short periods of time, but this is a very engaging book. A lot of the chapters I went back and re-read because I really wanted to "get it". The great thing about it is it reads like a novel while it's teaching you this really deep, life changing doctrine. I highly recommend it whether or not you're L.D.S. (Find it at www.deseretbook.com.) Happy reading!

Neil Gaiman absolutely rocks.

Just in case there was any doubt.

I read the peacegiver last year and liked it so much I've given it as a gift, twice! I hated the married couple storyline but thought Ferrell's insights were invaluable.
