Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy - Book Review

Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

Another book borrowed from the Calvary Church library.  I had seen this book before but because I was not sure who Bonhoeffer was, I didn't pick it up.  Once I started this book I could NOT put it down.  Very interesting short life, Bonhoeffer was only 39 years when he was executed, just before the end of WWII, and more likely by the orders of Hitler himself.
Very Highly Recommended!

I am now reading "The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich" A History of Nazi Germany.  Will review this book next.

Overdressed -- Book Review

Overdressed  The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion by Elizabeth L. Cline.

Excellent book in regards to why so many North American's have an insane amount of clothes, with most of them not being worn - just check out the thrift stores with all the clothes with tags still on them.  Clothes are so cheap & extremely cheaply made.  While the conclusion of this book is "Make your own Clothes", that is not practical for a lot of people.  It is definitely an eyeopener!
