Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
Dinner with Edward by Isabel Vincent
Why I have it: not sure, although many blogging friends enjoyed it according to Goodreads.
Summary: Isabel’s friend asks her to check in on her nonagenarian dad, Edward, who is grieving the death of his wife. Isabel has no idea that the glorious dinners Edward prepares will end up changing her life.
I’m thinking: Maybe (is a whole book stretching the material too far?).
On Living by Kerry Egan
Why I have it: Recommended by a colleague.
Summary: As a hospice chaplain, Kerry Egan found that the dying rarely wanted to talk about God, but rather wanted to tell their stories, and make meaning of what they had experienced. Egan documents what she calls the ‘spiritual work of dying’.
I’m thinking: Yes.
Little Weirds by Jenny Slate
Why I have it: Not sure but think it had something to with that lovely cover.
Summary: Slate reflects on everything from the smell of honeysuckle and birth, to electromagnetic energy fields and divorce.
I’m thinking: No (it’s a style thing).
