This summer I read the book The Last Lecture, by Randy Pausch. It was a heart wrenching story of a college professor who was asked to give a lecture on his life's journey.  What made this heart-wrenching  was the fact that he had been diagnosed with termnal cancer  -- and this truly would be his "last lecture."  Knowing  that his time was limited, he wanted to provide a legacy of sorts to his children -- his imparting words to those he loved, so that they would always know…

I recently read the novel The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini.  I started reading it for my summer reading last summer, but never finished, so I picked it up again a few weeks ago.  It's funny how sometimes it's hard to get into a book, and then other times you can enjoy the same book from the first word on the page.  Anyway, this time around I loved the book.  It's a story of a friendship that goes through many ups and downs, but ends in a place of love and forgiveness.  People…
