Minature is… really tiny

This post was supposed to be a book review of John Ortberg’s “If You Want to Walk on Water You’ve Got to Get Out of the Boat”. I have heard great things about this inspiring book so I ordered one from an Amazon reseller while talking on the phone with a friend about the book. Multi-tasking has a price.

I can not tell you about the book because I can not see it to read it. I’m not kidding. I can’t complain or send it back because when I looked back at the description, it did say hardback. (Minature version). Who could know that minature is 2 x 3 inches and condensed version doesn’t begin to describe it. The good news is that if you fall asleep reading this book, it won’t hurt you if it falls on your face. The bad news is that there isn’t enough to read to make you sleepy. I suppose the laughter was worth the price.

My favorite part of your post is that I have actually had a book fall on my face when I feel asleep ... many times! LOL Thanks for sharing a pic of your mini book

That is soooooo hilarious and something I would sooooo do! And ditto for uncommon blonde. I've had more than one book come crashing down as I slipped into a coma.

That is TOO funny. I had no idea they even sell regular books that size. This book happens to be one of my all-time favorites, mainly because I am the "boat potato" type by nature. I needed this book; it's one of the reasons I decided to go to She Speaks.
