My all-time favorite book . . . wait a minute. I see your frowny face, your index finger rising, aiming square at my chest. "But Michelle! You can't choose a favorite book! That's like picking a favorite child."
To which I gently but firmly place my tongue between my lips and blow a voracious raspberry.
Now that we've got that childish business behind us, my all-time favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Why? Because the heroine has such a strong moral code, remains so true to herself, that she gives up the man she loves and keeps her integrity. Now that's a role model.
Anyway, I'm super excited to announce that there's a new audiobook version that just came on the market yesterday read by Thandie Newton, an awesome voice talent. HERE is a sample of her reading, and HERE is the Amazon link to snap up your own copy.
And if you've never had the pleasure of reading Jane Eyre for yourself, it's available on Kindle right now for free.
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me
two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the
latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and
Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti
phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
