I have recently discovered something that has the potential to save me time and money – both of which I am severely lacking. And, because I love you all so much, I’d like to share it with you!
I have discovered *Solomon Summaries*. This service reads all sorts of Christian books and summarizes them for you. It packs an entire book into a Cliff’s Notes sized synopsis, and lets you glean the main points from the book without actually reading the book.
Just as in Cliff’s Notes, the *Solomon Summaries* aren’t meant to be a substitute for the book. Rather, they can be used as a tool in determining whether or not you’d actually like to purchase a book, and as a tool to reach a better and deeper understanding of the book.
Since my dearly beloved has an entire room in our house devoted to housing thousands of books – a room which I could put to much better use as an exercise room, in my opinion – I plan to surprise him with a subscription to this service. Perhaps this will prevent that one room from spilling over into the rest of the house.
Well, okay, I can’t blame it all on him. I actually like his library, and use it quite often when writing the posts for this blog. So, I’m sure I’ll use the service, too.
Anyway, check it out.
By the way, the Bulldawgs won tonight.
We are now at 8 wins, 0 losses.
I love Texas football.
Blessings to you all!
Go Bulldawgs! Would you give us an update on your dad when you have a chance.
Dad is recovering well. Slow, but steady progress. He visits the oncologist on Wednesday, so please continue your prayers. Thanks, Alyssa.
I checked out the Solomon Summaries, and it does look interesting. And I have to add that our library must rival yours, Renae! My husband loves to get books secondhand (and firsthand), and we have shelves upon shelves of them… Christian classics, current writers, whole sets and series, hardback, paperback, signed by the author, all the Louis L’Amour books, somebody else’s name in the front — you name it, we might have it!
Oh, good, Jeanette! Right now, they are offering a free trial subscription, so you really should try it out!
Glad to hear I’m not alone in my life with a book addict! 😉 Mark’s are mostly Bible commentaries. Shelves and shelves. Now, if it were a fiction library, it would be much more exciting to me. I guess that shows something about me . . . not sure if it’s good or not . . . but there you have it. 😉 But I am learning to appreciate those commentaries, as well.
Thanks for letting others know!
Your book room sounds like our house. Books everywhere. I’m the only one who finishes them, though. My husband gets too distracted by learning something else new about 1/3 into any book–which means the headboard above his side of the bed is crowded with books! Every once in a while, I go through and re-shelve ones he hasn’t picked up in a bit.
Glad to do it, Heather! Your husband sounds like mine. He jokes that he doesn’t actually “read” books – he looks at them, scans them, flips through the pages . . . and moves on. 🙂
