October Bloggy Book Club


For the month of October...I have chosen The Shack by Wm. Paul Young or William P. Young as I have seen it credited both ways. He has a blog here.
This will not be an easy read...The back cover page asks the question "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" This is a novel about a father who's youngest daughter is abducted during a family vacation and evidence points to the fact that she was brutally murdered in a shack. Four years later, in the midst of his great sadness, he receives a note apparently from God asking him to come to the shack for the weekend! What he finds there will change him forever.
This is the book I received from Rhonda at A Day in Rhonda's Life for her pay-it-forward contest...
We will all blog about it Sunday, October 26th.
** Candid Carrie is bringing the cheese ball.***

Hey, I'm a step ahead (for the first time in my whole entire life)! I've already started the book! lol

Amy said...

Yep. I've got everything but the picture. BTW that is an awesome book. My church has been reading it. I read it in about 7 hours. I couldn't put it down. It starts off a little slow but I really enjoyed it. I've been meaning to blog about it but I wanted to read it again first so it was fresh in my mind.

Wow! Just your explanation of what the book is about has me intrigued!!! I will wait for your review. I haven't had a chance to read any books for several weeks now. I love to read in the winter though.....so I may have to check this out!

Love the Bush quote you left in my comments today. You're right.....its too sad to be funny anymore!

You have a great day as well! I brought my coffee to work....I think some of us are going to try it this week.....look at me playing nice with others and sharing....;) (Notice I didn't share the chocolate though) :)

That book looks really interesting. I'm always on the lookout for good reads!

Mekhismom said...

This sounds like a great read. Difficult subject matter but sounds really good. I wonder if I can find it at my library.

Candid Carrie said...

So she gives the coffee away and tells people about it in a place that I might be reading?

This book club isn't going to be big enough for the both of us. She needs to stay on the other side of the cheese ball.

Wow, I was visiting for Angie's WW and saw your comment on this book. It's definitely I want to read.

I came over to your site from live.love.eat. I have been needed a book for October and this is a perfect opportunity. I have been to your site one other time and remembered you. You have a great blog! I haven't participated in a book blog so this is something new. I'll get the book this week!
