Some kindle e-book specials to help you read well
I love reading. But sometimes the price of books get me down.
The last few days I've seen that some of the books I've loved reading over the last few years are on sale. So I thought I'd put together a list so you guys can benefit from the bargains too before it's too late.
Full disclosure: if you click on a link and buy a book I will a get a small percentage from the purchase which I'll probably use to buy more books.
Sparkly green earrings by Melanie Shankle
Filled with personal stories—from the decision to become a mother to the heartbreak of miscarriage and ultimately, to the joy of raising a baby and living to tell about it—Sparkly Green Earrings will make you feel like you’re sitting across the table from your best friend. A must-read for anyone who’s ever had a child or even thought about it.
$3.99 till 6 May
Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist
I loved this memoir, my mother didn't. Bread and Wine is a celebration of food shared, reminding readers of the joy found in a life around the table. It's about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them. It's about hunger, both physical and otherwise, and the connections between the two.
$1.99 (not sure when this one ends)
The girl from the train by Irma Joubert
This was by far my favourite novel from 2015. Separated by continents, politics, religion, language, and years, Jakób and Gretl will likely never see each other again. But the events they have both survived and their belief that the human spirit can triumph over the ravages of war have formed a bond of love that no circumstances can overcome. Did I mention it's written by a South African?

Love Does by Bob Goff
As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean’s office for seven days until they finally let him enroll. When Love Does, life gets interesting. Each day turns into a hilarious, whimsical, meaningful chance that makes faith simple and real. Each chapter is a story that forms a book, a life. And this is one life you don't want to miss.
$4.99 (not sure when this one ends but worth getting even if isn't on sale)
The hardest peace by Kara Tippetts
Kara Tippetts knows the ordinary days of mothering four kids, the joy of watching her children grow ... and the devestating reality of stage-four cancer. In The Hardest Peace, Kara doesn't offer answers for when living is hard, but she asks us to join her in moving away from fear and control and toward peace and grace. Most of all, she draws us back to the God who is with us, in the mundane and the suffering, and who shapes even our pain into beauty. A hard but beautiful read. I reviewed Kara's last book earlier this year you might remember the post about how to live well when the life you living isn't the one you expected.
$2.99 till 13 May
God knows my name by Beth Redman
Beth Redman writes to pass along a message that changed her life—that the God who made us also understands us intimately and proclaims our worth by naming us and calling our name. He hears our cries and reaches out to help us and fight for us. He knows our past but is already hard at work shaping our future—helping us, defending us, and restoring the damage life has done. And no matter what others do, our heavenly Father will never, ever leave or forget us.
