Resisting eBooks and Colored Jeans . . . Until Now

 

Resisting eBooks and Colored Jeans . . . Until Now

 

 

Confession: I usually resist the latest fad for at least a couple years. Then when it’s seriously ooold news, I finally give in.

Like colored jeans. I just got my first (red) pair a couple weeks ago. (I really wanted a yellow pair, but that’s beside the point . . .)

Same goes for technology.

Confession: I’ve never read an eBook. Never.

But . . . my eBook, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl, is on sale for just $2.99 through December 16!

That meant I needed to do my homework. Bear with me as I share what I learned:

Kindle is Amazon’s eBook reader.
Nook is Barnes & Noble’s eBook reader.
Even iTunes has an eBook reader called iBook!

Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl: On Her Journey from Neediness to Freedom is available on all three (KindleNook, and iBook) for just $2.99 through Monday.

I’m writing this silly post for two reasons:

  1. To let you know about this steal-of-a-deal, because you probably started reading eBooks (and buying colored jeans!) eons ago.
  2. To ask how you prefer to read. Are you an old-fashioned girl like me who enjoys breathing in the smell of a new (or old) book, or are you all about the ease of the eBook? If so, which reader is your fave? I’m curious.

It’s Here! Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl

Dear reader,

It’s almost done.

Scratch that. It’s almost begun!

In three short days, Confessions of a Boy-Crazy Girl: On Her Journey from Neediness to Freedom releases (although Amazon beat everyone to the punch and is already shipping orders!).

My goal in each chapter is to point readers to Jesus.

While the book is technically written for young teens, women of all ages have told me they love it. I think that’s because ultimately, it’s so much more than a teen book about boy craziness.

It’s a story about looking to “little g” gods (idols) to satisfy what only the “Big G” God can. While this book’s particular backdrop is boy craziness, it could just as well be a book about overeating, or looking to your husband or career for your worth, or . . . fill in the blank with your idol of choice.

My goal in each chapter is to point readers to Jesus. In Confessions, I cover everything from who you are in Christ to how to beat sin through the Holy Spirit in you. I hope you’ll pick up a copy, read it, and then share it with a teen.

PS: Would you pray for me today? I have my first book radio interview with Miss Nancy Leigh DeMoss from 1:30–4:30 p.m. How I need God to give me His words and strength and just the right mix of compassion and boldness, transparency and truth. Thank you!
