Two more books!

Reason #61 why the kindle is awesome:
You can borrow and loan books!

When I got my kindle, I didn't know this, and my biggest perceived drawback to the kindle was all the money I'd spend buying books. Cause y'all, books are expensive. And I read a decent amount. For traditional books, I get the majority of my reading material from the library. I foresaw all my kindle reading material costing quite a bit once you added it all up.
But rejoice, oh kindle users! You can actually borrow and lend books to other kindle owners. And there's an awesome website, www.kindlelendingclub.com that has a forum that makes it easy to borrow and lend books. If you have a kindle, go check it out!!

Anyway, I have to more books to add to my 2011 list.

"Her Mother's Hope" and "Her Daughter's Dream" by Francine Rivers.
(Francine Rivers writes Christian fiction, and thus, her books are obviously Christian. As in, it's not annoying or over the top, but it's also not hidden behind the scenes either. The story is the primary part of the book, but as you learn about the characters, you also learn about the relationship and struggles with their faith.)

These two books span 5 generations of women and tell a great story. The story begins in Switzerland, with the very first woman and her daughter. The daugher, who is the "main-est" character, travels through England, France, Germany and then moves to America, living first in Canada and then California. The story begins in the early 1900s and ends in current time. As the book and the sequel progresses, we come to know her daughter, grand-daughter, and great grand-daughter. There's great insight on mother-daughter relationships.
Even if you think Christian fiction isn't your thing, I'd still recommend these books. The story line and character development is fantastic.
