    Ooh, Flight Behavior is on my to read list!

    I love Barbara Kingsolver! I didn’t like Flight Behavior nearly as much as Poisonwood Bible or Animal Dreams, though. 🙂

    Lovely! And I just preordered your book, just the kick in the pants I needed. BTW, I never preorder, but I am so excited for your book that I’m breaking out of old habits.
    Your blog is my very favorite. Ever.

    I am with Joy—I had such high hopes for Flight Behavior, but I enjoyed Poisonwood Bible so much more. Curious to hear what you think!

    Oh, I read some books written by Barbara Kingsolver and I just like how she writes.
    This one is really nice too (I read it in French). Enjoy!

    Have a wonderful trip to Portland!! If you like the Babara Kingsolver book, I recommend “The Poisonwood Bible”. It’s an intense book of survival, family, love, strength, and perseverance. I seriously have to go get some Nutella ASAP! =) Happy November!
