Up until 1:30 last night!

I don't know it was the fact that my body is still on Hawaii time and so it was really only 8:30 when I went to bed or the book that I literally couldn't put down. When I started reading at around 11pm last night I thought for sure it would help me get tired and fall asleep as reading usually does for me. The book had another idea. I started on page 117 and didn't stop until I got to the end, page 23?..it was a lot of pages, you get the idea.
Those that know me well or have heard me say it, I'm not a reader, so I didn't think. I have decided that I love to read, it is just rare that I find books I like to read! This book was amazing and I think the fact that I stayed awake reading that long, at those hours says so! Same Kind of Different as Me was so moving and even challenging for me spiritually!
The story is basically about a modern day slave from Lousiana, a wealthy art dealer from Texas and how their lives came together!
I would reccomend anyone to go out and buy this book!


P.S. don't look at the website too much (or at all until your finish the book), it will give away the story- I am one of those who doesn't want to know anything about the story though.( in books and movies)

I feel the same way about this book! Not usually a finisher of books, but a good starter, however this book had me reading at every waking moment until I was finished in 4 days. I need to read it again. : ) Welcome back from Hawaii!

I did a blog post on this book too! I even took it to the gym with me so I could read and work-out...obviously I couldn't put it down either!

I have heard many people say good things about this book. I am not one for reading either, but I think I may go buy this one.

I never read books through and I finished this so fast! It was greatness! I just finished another called Save Me From Myself and it was so good as well.
