for my trip to africa (and these might spill into singapore), i’m taking the following books (thanks to bob c for the idea of sharing these):

, by Kenda Dean. i read the first 2/3 a month or 6 weeks ago, and thought it was the best 2/3 of a youth ministry book i’d ever read. now, i should really finish the thing.

, by Brian Greene. i’m 25 pages into this one. it’s about time i learned more about quantum physics and string theory.

, by Margane Satrapi. this is an illustrated book, a sequel (gee, could you tell?), and i loved the first one (which was the author’s autobiographical story of growing up in iran during the revolution).

, by Anne Lamott. yup, she’s been one of my favorite writers for years now. and pretty much all my friends who love her writing were disappointed with this book. but i have to read it anyhow.

, by Gerald N. Callahan. what can i say? a good friend told me this was a great book and that he knew i would love it.

Plan B is a great book. Maybe your friends didn’t like all the Bush-bashing, but the book is vintage Annie. I listened to it, and I was often laughing out loud.

See you in Singapore.

I’m with tony on the plan B book. I laughed out loud so many times. It was really good for my depression :-) One memorable line that caught my funny bone, and I don’t know why it still makes me laugh is, “the ham of God that takes away the sins of the world.”

I loved Fabric of the Cosmos - even though I only understood 75% of it… fascinating stuff.
