Grab the nearest book (or website) to you right now. Jump to paragraph 3, second Sentence. Write it in a post.

Bonus: Make up a sentence to follow the first one, but make it go in an entirely different direction that the actual book or website does.







For one thing, the expression bullshit is often employed quite loosely – simply as a generic term of abuse, with no very specific literal meaning.




I can think of no connotation in which the exclamation of bullshit! could even remotely be construed as a positive or worthy endorsement.




For another, the phenomenon itself is so vast and amorphous that no crisp and perspicuous analysis of its concept can avoid being procrustean.

Life’s That Way by Jim Beaver – Review July 29, 2010

How do you recommend a book that details one man’s gut-wrenching experience in grief and loss? Whole-heartedly, unreservedly.


After years of trying, Jim Beaver, actor and film historian and his wife Cecily, are blessed with a beautiful daughter. Soon after learning their young daughter Madeline is autistic, Cecily is diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. “Life’s That Way” is presented, as it happened, in a series of emotional posts to friends, family and eventually, a multitude on concerned and engrossed strangers, about the initial diagnosis, treatment and untimely death of his beloved wife, Cecily Adams, to lung cancer.


I was a little nervous reading this – I thought it would just be too sad, depressing and personal to read about a dying woman. I was wrong. There is of course, great sadness – in the passing of one so young, one so loved and giving. But this book is one of the most beautiful, loving and ultimately uplifting ‘stories’ I’ve ever been honored enough to know of.


Mr. Beaver’s bracing honesty and raw emotion will make you cry. But you’ll also learn and laugh and marvel at the beauty of this love story between Jim, his wife and beautiful daughter Madeline Rose.
