Book Review Sneak Peek & Giveaway: A Million Miles in a Thousand Years

Coming soon …

On September 25th, I’ll post my review of A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: What I Learned While Editing My Life by Donald Miller. Until then, here’s a brief description of the book:

Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man’s opportunity to edit his life as if he were a character in a movie.

miller_donald Years after writing a best-selling memoir, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another.

But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don’s life for film–changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative–the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around.

I’m currently about halfway through and am loving the book so far … that’s all I’ll say!
