Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

Add it to the stack!

My latest literary acquirements to add to the stack of books I fear I may never get read:

I'm halfway through Enna Burning and LOVE IT! Hale's first book from this 3-book series, The Goose Girl, was also phenomenal. It's based off of a two-page Brothers Grimm fairy tail. I actually also bought that book to send my friend, Kelley, in England.

As a late birthday present I used a gift card to buy Hale's latest book, Book of a Thousand Days. It's another retold Brothers Grimm classic.

I did get a grown-up novel: The Kite Runner. I loved A Thousand Splendid Suns, even though I heard The Kite Runner is better, so I have high hopes for this one.

My final acquisition is The Tree: Wonder of the Natural World, pictured here in Spanish. I bought the English version, which I found in the bargain books section and only paid $8! It contains beautiful pictures that I would love to paint. Someday, I hope.

I liked SUNS better than KITE. I thought KITE was too dark.

Thanks for the comment Marie!

I haven't been able to start reading The Kite Runner yet -- it's been a very stressful 2 wks! But I hope to read it soon. I can't imagine liking it more than Suns, though.
