Sarah was supposed to write a post today to get us thinking about our Shane discussion, but due to some internet issues, she’ll be writing it later this week.
In the meantime, here is some literary news that we thought we’d share just for kicks.
50 years ago, a classic was published. To Kill A Mockingbird is considered by many to be one of the best books of all time. You probably think so, too, if you’ve read it. If you haven’t, don’t despair! Who knows? Maybe it will make it onto our reading list sometime! Come on, who doesn’t love a little girl named Scout? (Article on the anniversary of the novel.)
Also, last year we read what was probably the most talked about/loved/hated book of the year, The Shack. Sadly, the author and publishers, once friends, have begun quarreling over what it is that always seems to divide people: money. (Read more about their shenanigans here.) Regardless of your opinion of the book, it’s always sad when friendships become lawsuits 😦
Well, stay tuned for discussion questions, I can’t wait to see you all next Monday! (and if you haven’t read Shane yet, there’s still time! Seriously. It’s really short. It’s really worth it.)
