Beach reading

Although I by no means expect to plow through all of them, these are the books I brought to the beach with me this week:



Into Hot Air: Mounting Mount Everest by Chris Elliott (read)



Rock On: An Office Power Ballad by Dan Kennedy (reading)



Our Dumb World: The Onion's Atlas of the Planet Earth, 73rd Edition (bathroom reading)



Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality by Donald Miller (on deck)



Velvet Elvis: Repainting the Christian Faith by Rob Bell



Searching For God Knows What by Donald Miller



The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton

"mounting mount everest"?
that's quite the kink there.

rock on looks like fun.

i loved the google-earth Dumb World. thanks for reminding me. gotta check it out again soon.

blue like jazz is cool (it's being made into a movie, btw, with steve taylor directing and co-writing. i think it's gonna be a LOT more fun than The Second Chance.) but searching for God knows what is one of my faves of all-time and much superior, imho.

and rob bell? a hero of my wife and i. that book helped change my life.

have fun.

I really liked Chris Elliott's last book. Let me know how this one was!

jasdye - Rock On was indeed a fun read, although I didn't really care for his accounts of how he'd speak to his co-workers. Maybe he indeed stammered a whole lot, but I didn't care to read all of that.

Yeah, I'd heard about the upcoming BLJ movie. In the meantime, I found out that a companion book to the original was just released.

I'll likely take a Miller break after this and read the Bell book.

srah - If you like Thwacker, you'll most likely dig the new one (Wendell's in it!). Same type of humor, but a different setting. I won't give anything away, but Elliott assembles a fun bunch of celebs to accompany him up the mountain. Reading this book makes me want a comprehensive, multi-season DVD set of "Get a Life" RIGHT NOW (it's being held up for some reason).
