Lamenting with Lamott

One of my favorite authors is Anne Lamott.  I like her voice, her style, her  message…plus she is from Northern California!  Last night I was reading her book Plan B, which is typical of her down to earth style.  What makes her a great author to me is that she is not afraid to share her inner most thoughts and feelings.  Sure, some of the things she says her raw, but I appreciate what she says and how she feels.  Last night her chapter about her dog Sadie made me weep.  There is nothing much better than reading a good book.  Well, perhaps writing a great book may top it a bit! Feel free to share some of your favorite books with me!
