Doug and I commute to work together as often as we can. He drives the first leg to his job in Canton, then I head on down to Uhrichsville. It only adds about 10 minutes to my trip. And what’s another 10 tacked on to 55? :P It’s definitely worth the gas money we save. Plus, I enjoy the company for half of the daily drive. It’s great for communication in our marriage—designated talk time that Doug can’t easily escape! (And I like to talk...a lot!)
Our last couple of commutes have been on the quiet side, however, as I was reading Ted Dekker’s Three and just couldn’t put it down. I’d been reading it for a while, actually, just a chapter or so here and there, because I had trouble getting into it. But by halfway through I was completely hooked. What a twist at the end! I didn’t see it coming at all, and I love when that happens. It’s funny because when I read suspense or mystery, I’m constantly trying to figure it out, hoping I’m right so that the author hasn’t outwitted me. Yet, being right is oddly disappointing, so I’d rather be wrong! (And that’s about the only time I prefer that!)
What books have taken you by total surprise? I’m looking for another good “twisted” read, and Doug may thank you for the quiet commute time, too!
