In 140 Characters:

Tweview: In “A Million Miles” @donmilleris coaxes the reader into paying more attention. Gratitude ensues.

In 100 Words:

Whenever I start to think to myself that perhaps Donald Miller is overrated, that surely his degree of success is available to any hard-working author, Miller comes along and writes another book that catches me off guard.

In A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Miller explores the relationship between story and life in a way that manages to inspire without self-help and teach without condescension. It is perhaps his most universal book, for it is as much about the reader as it is about the author. Fellow writers will especially enjoy the brief glimpses into Miller’s career and craft.

In 1 Quote:

“If it won’t work in a story, it won’t work in life.”  

***   

I'm really looking forward to hearing Miller speak on Saturday in Chattanooga. Anyone else planning to attend?
