I've been making weird food again lately. My favorite was a rice, sausage and chickpea casserole from Peru. I just can't stand eating the same food all the time. Frankly I don't like reading and reviewing the same kind of book all the time either. Recently at a Ladies Day, I ran into the author of a strikingly unusual book. Lynette Gray introduced her book on Jonah to me based on the things that were unusual about it and I found that those were the 5 things I like best about it.
1. It's outside the "norm" for books written by women. If you've been reading here long you'll know that Melissa and I are a bit nerdy. We write 12 month series on ways to study the Bible and encourage readers to dig into 1st Maccabees for fun. We are outside of the normal realm of mom blogs, food blogs and even female faith blogs; we are a bit strange.
