Years after writing a best-selling memoir, Donald Miller went into a funk and spent months sleeping in and avoiding his publisher. One story had ended, and Don was unsure how to start another.
But he gets rescued by two movie producers who want to make a movie based on his memoir. When they start fictionalizing Don’s life for film–changing a meandering memoir into a structured narrative–the real-life Don starts a journey to edit his actual life into a better story. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details that journey and challenges readers to reconsider what they strive for in life. It shows how to get a second chance at life the first time around. via Amazon
The book does have some minor religious undertones, but its not a Bible thumping read. What I really enjoyed was Don’s story from an ordinary, uninspired life to one that he’d be proud to tell at the gates of heaven. It’s a quick read – short chapters, cleaver writing, but not too complex. $14
