Passing The Pages and a Good Free Movie

Hope everyone is having a good weekend 🙂

Two short things today:

A friend/reader wrote me last week and said she had a book that she would like to pass onto someone interested.  I haven’t done a passing the pages post for a while because I haven’t been reading print books (or I have gotten them from the library).

For the full story check out Passing the Pages.  The short version is book sharing or by paying postage to someone else ‘unbuying’ the book (less than $5).  It is minimalist because it offers a creative and positive way to remove the book from our possession and it is green because it recycles the book.

Kendra offered to give Mountains of Spices by Hannah Hurnard.  Here is what Kendra had to say about the book:

Hannah Hurnard wrote this allegory examining our hurtful attitudes and how the anecdote for each is Christ in the fruits of the spirit. It is the sequel to her other allegory, Hinds’ Feet on High Places, where a young woman named Much-Afraid goes on a journey to the high places on the invitation of the Shepherd. I think it would be hard to read the second without reading the first, but if there’s anyone out there who has read the first and wanted to read the sequel, I’d be happy to mail it to you!

If you want this book just be the first one to comment that you want it in the comment section.  Simple 🙂  I will connect you with Kendra on e-mail to arrange shipping.  Probably because of shipping costs this is just open to US residents.  If you are out of the US and it looks like a good book the electronic copy is pretty cheap.

Have a book you want to pass on to another reader?  Contact me

The second thing I wanted to share with you was a movie:

Thrive With Less

This is a very well done movie/project of 6 college students who experiment with different areas of minimalism.   I was very impressed with the video quality.   They are a bit more extreme than I probably could be, even for a month, but it was good to watch and I enjoyed it.  Just under an hour and it was worth it 🙂

If you have trouble I unclicked/turned off the HD because my internet was too slow and it was skipping.  

Hitting money tomorrow 🙂  See ya then.

    I would love this book… I read Hinds Feet on High Places many years ago and did not know there was a sequel. It is a great book! Thanks for setting this up!!

  2. I love your husband’s beautiful photo (I just saved it on my iPod Touch). One of my minimalist goals in life is own a cabin in a semi-rural area, complete with a twin bed, lazy boy recliner and small coffee table. Strange dream, I know, but this is incredibly attractive to me for reasons I can’t put into words at this time. Thanks Lori!

    • Thanks so much! I passed on the compliment. I agree with you, I love the idea of a small house. Mine would have the top be a loft for a ‘bedroom’ to leave the bottom area to have room for a chair and small kitchen set-up. This is an old garden shed at my in-laws farm.

  3. Just wanted to say “passing the pages” is a great idea. Using a bookswapping website (, in my case) has been a great way for me to minimize: already-read-books out, in exchange for credits for someone else’s pre-loved-but-new-to-me ones.

    • I haven’t heard of that website. I will have to check it out. Thanks 🙂

  4. First, that photo is amazing! Second, I love the idea of Passing the Pages. I’ll have to keep it in mind…I have a ton of books. Third, yay, you got the Thrive With Less documentary to work! Glad you enjoyed it 🙂

    • Erin, thanks so much for recommending it 🙂
