Book Review - Same Kind Of Different As Me

I mentioned last week that I have about 50 books that I've bought over the years and never read. I'm starting to work on that pile of books and the first one I read was "Same Kind Of Different As Me" by Ron Hall & Denver Moore. I have to say this is one of the best books I've ever read. I looked out on Amazon and every single one of the 62 reviews gave it a 5 star rating. I am not normally a really emotional person but this book chocked me up so much that my dog thought something was seriously wrong with me. I mainly was sniffling a lot and she kept getting in my face wondering what the problem was. Some of the reason it got to me so much was the fact that there was a part in the book that touched on an experience I've had myself. I don't want to elaborate on that because for those of you that know me it might tell too much about the book. All it seems that I can tell you without disclosing too much is what it says on the cover: "A modern-day slave, an international art dealer, and the unlikely woman who bound them together." This is a true story of faith and love and of lots of God moments. It is funny at times and one of those books you cannot put down. It is life changing! I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone no matter what type of books you like to read.

Hi, saw you over at Callipider Days. Great review, please keep it up so I will have another place to find good books. Yes, I'm addicted.

I came over from the Bloggy Giveaway! Love your review, and now I'm going to enter your drawing.

I just wanted to say I'm glad I'm not the only one who has a lot of unread books laying around. I'm trying to get through some of mine this summer too. :)
