Booked – literature in the soul of me

by Karen Swallow Prior

From the very first story to the powerful and final statement , I was enraptured. In Karen’s book, cleverly titled “Booked”, we see her life intertwined with literature and God. What a task to bring them all together. I assure you, she was up for the challenge!!

Each chapter is dedicated to some form of literature that made a huge impact on her life. It may surprise you that I did not grow up reading books like Karen did. In fact, books are a relatively new thing for me! Seeing how she was able to pull truths out of these books, that are so quickly overlooked, completely blew my mind. I honestly wish I could spend about a week absorbing each chapter. They are so rich in content and full of truths.

I believe that every person could learn and grow from this book. I don’t care what stage you are at, there is something here for you. She tackles the tough issues without reserve. There is no holding back. It’s so beautifully offered up, you almost miss the depth of what is there!

Thank you so much, Karen, for this book! As always, this is my honest opinion. I would ask that everyone reading this check out Booked! There’s a link in the pic above.

Also, don’t forget to check out NAME IT!! and see if you can do better than I did!!
