Reading Challenge XVII


I'm so sad that I just finished the last sentence of Barbara Kingsolver's Animal Vegetable Miracle. It was just wonderful. As I've already says, she inspires me. Her words make me want to write more. They challenge me to be a better person and live more faithfully in tune with Creation. And now, I'm just sad that it's over.

She has inspired me to actually order a CSA box over the winter months. She got me to make a summery potato salad for my dinner party on Sunday night. Um. Yum. That same meal was created with all local foods and gluten free. I love bread -- but one of my guests is very allergic. And now, I feel compelled to read that book sitting on my shelf that will make me feel badly about eating everything -- but I think it's time for a real novel. Summer isn't over yet, after all.

Definitely don't skip over The Omnivore's Dilemma! It's not totally depressing, and the chapter on Corn Sex is not to be missed.

Tell me what novel you choose; I need a good one. I've been trying to read F. Scott Fitzgerald's first novel, This Side of Paradise, but I don't think I can get all the way through it.
