March's Pick: Lamb

This March, we are going to read a book that has been on the "to be read" shelf for a long while: Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore. I thoroughly enjoyed Fool, and I’m told that this one is his best. If the subtitle doesn't sum it up enough for you, perhaps the "Author's Blessing" will:

If you have come to these pages for laughter, may you find it.

If you are here to be offended, may your ire rise and your blood boil.

If you seek an adventure, may this song sing you away to blissful escape.

If you need to test or confirm your beliefs, may you reach comfortable conclusions.

All books reveal perfection, by what they are or what they are not.

May you find that which you seek, in these pages or outside them.

May you find perfection, and know it by name.

Check out more books at his website. It’s taken me a long time to get to this one
 - enjoy!
