Boyfriends, Burritos& an Ocean of Trouble (Real Life) by Nancy N. Rue
Boyfriends, Burritos& an Ocean of Trouble (Real Life)

Curtis Martin, February 27, 2013

Nancy Rue sure knows how to put real faith in her Real Life books. I may not fit in her usual readership, being a middle-aged Dad with a college-aged daughter that I love. It was just as good for me. I have also been the target of extreme anger and bullying, even as an adult, so I know how traumatic it can be. The Bible speaks to me just like RL did for Bryn. I pray that you will let it speak to you as we'll.

The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child by Donalyn Miller
The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child

Curtis Martin, January 3, 2013

This was my hands-down favorite non-fiction read for 2012. I can't think of any other book that deserves the title more than The Book Whisperer. All of us bookworms have to awaken the book whisperer within to spread the love of reading all over the planet.

Ths was more than a good read. It inspired me to act. The best kind of book. It inspired me to collect a couple hundred chapter books to donate to an reservation school in the boondocks of Arizona.

Mockingbird. Kathryn Erskine

Here is another favorite for 2012. I read it in September (see my earlier comments) and thought it was the best. It's still up there as a great book, maybe best YA book for 2012.

The Reluctant Prophet (Reluctant Prophet) by Nancy Rue
The Reluctant Prophet (Reluctant Prophet)

Curtis Martin, January 3, 2013

It is really hard to choose juse *one* favorite book for 2012. This has got to be way up there in the top three for me. I liked the way that Nancy Rue developed her characters. It was interesting to see how each character tried to live their faith. Not everyone can be a prophet, but we can all make a contribution. This was a great book, and I have been recommending it to all my friends and book clubs that I know.

1Q84 by Haruki Murakami
1Q84

Curtis Martin, January 3, 2013

I liked this book so much I read it twice. A friend of mine said it was too slow moving, but I really liked the pace and the surreal digressions. Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors.
