There are books that I enjoy reading. There are books that I love. And then there are books that fill me with such missionary zeal, I feel a need to press them into the hands of everyone I know!
I just discovered a new-to-me book that makes me feel that way, E.K. Johnston’s The Story of Owen: Dragon Slayer of Trondheim. Funny, warm, quirky, and fantastically fun, it’s about teenaged dragon-slayers in modern-day Canada, and I love it so much I want to push it at EVERYONE, shouting “Read it! You’ll love it! Just try it! Now, now, now!” I’ve raved about it on Twitter; I’ve raved about it at length on Facebook; I may well gift it to multiple people in my family this year. It’s a book that (to me, anyway) needs to be shared!
What about you guys? What was the last book that turned you into a Book Missionary?
