Donny's Ramblings

Books

10 Comments

I’ve been receiving books from major publishing companies (such as Zondervan, Thomas Nelson and others) in the hopes that I’ll read and review them for you, my constant readers. Their arrival is usually preceded by an email telling me the title of a book they’d like me to review, and a brief summary of the contents. I’m honored to be asked to do this. I didn’t contact them. They contacted me.

So what this means is that at some point very soon I’ll have another tab up there at the top of the page called “Book Reviews” (or something similar). And I’ll be brutally honest with my opinions of each book.

I plan to publish each review as a main article right here on my blog home page, and then archive a link to each article on the new “Book Reviews” page I just mentioned. I’m excited.

I’m guessing my recommendations of Donald Miller’s and Rob Bell’s books have caught someone’s attention.

They picked the right guy. I love to read.

Love it, love it, love it….

  1. Hey Donny, when I write my book I’ll have you review it!! Seriously I think my brother Steve should write a book. And I think someday you will be writing one yourself!
    Rosie and her boyfriend are reading Blue Like Jazz. They love it.

  5. You could get Rick McKinley’s book (unless you already have it) and review it. I came across his blog recently and he is offering it for free if you’re willing to blog a review.

    I’d ask for it myself, but I don’t blog regularly enough. I may order it sometime though, esp. if you give it a good review!

  7. Thanks for the tip on that, Tracy. I haven’t read his book yet and I would love to do so.
