Day 31: The End

I have to admit that I’m pretty happy that this blogging challenge is officially over.  This year was easier than the past few in some ways, but I’m quite ready to get back to rambling on other topics.

I chose to write about books for a few reasons:
1) I love to both read and talk about books.
2) I needed a topic that wouldn’t be too challenging for me, because I had already committed myself to several guest posts/sponsored posts/etc this month
3) I thought it would be fun.

As it turns out, it wasn’t as fun as I thought it would be to talk about books for 31 days straight (okay, 30, since I missed a day somewhere back there).  In fact, it got pretty boring.  Maybe easier isn’t always better.  I guess we’ll see if I learned my lesson next year.  Probably not, knowing me.

Here are a few final book recommendations.  I wrote in no particular order, so these aren’t my favorite books of all or anything, they just happened to be the last few on my list.

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

I read this book about a trillion times for school.  I don’t know why I had to read it so many times, but at least it’s a book worth reading.  It reminds me that there are still good people in the world, people who are willing to stand up for what’s right no matter the personal cost.  Sometimes I need that reminder.

Flag of our Fathers by James Bradley

I really liked this book.  It made me realize that things are not always what they seem, that heroes are just ordinary people who do what needs to be done, and that those men truly were the greatest generation.

The end.  🙂
