The Full Opinion

I may or may not do more posts on Kingsolver's book. If you want to know my full opinion, you can read my Amazon review here.

Why do I bother to mention this? I had mixed feelings about the book, and I wanted you to know.

Wait, you've sworn off book-buying??

I do enjoy getting books from the library and then only purchasing them if I really "need" them. I almost always borrow fiction and cookbooks, but buy a lot of non-fiction (mostly Christian stuff that I can't find in the library).

Ahhh... well. This year I'm trying to live by The Compact, which is an informal agreement with others on-line to buy nothing new when possible. Books have been the hardest thing, and sometimes I've bought Christian books (as you note) because my library doesn't carry all the titles. Though they surprise me with how many they do carry!

The Compact has saved me so much money, and I've been paying down my mortgage and car payment with the "excess". It really has made an incredibly unexpected difference.
