I Hate When This Happens! (a little)

26 Jun

So I’m searching Amazon the other night for books by Stephen R. Lawhead, specifically his retelling of the Robin Hood legend, “Hood.” I found the books I was looking for, along with a bonus.

The bonus was a promo for a new book of essays by an author I’d never heard of before; Marilynne Robinson. Evidently she’s known for her Pulitzer Prize – winning novel “Gilead,” as well as several other critically acclaimed novels. Her book of essays, “The Givenness of Things,” is a cultural critique of our society and it’s declared materialism and obsession with technology. So she’s a deep thinker in areas that interest me.

What’s a poor book junkie to do!? I only have so much time! Gads!

Anyone out there have any experience with Ms Robinson’s writings? Is it worth burdening my list with yet more volumes? I need help here, folks.

I may have to become the book monk.
