Short review. This was an interesting book. It is short (around 80 pages) and is made up of a curated twitter stream of about a year when the author was attempting to adopt his son from Ethiopia.

The book is in part an attempt at fundraising for water development to give back to Ethiopia, so I think the author

This book is the story of my son's adoption, told primarily through Twitter updates. Published in 2010, it feels entirely old school now.

But perhaps the best part of this book is that we used it to raise funds for a clean water well in Ethiopia. In the fall of 2012 that well was completed. Learn more about the well and see the pictures.

This was written by a friend of mine from 4th grade. It was rather humorous, reading all of his "twittering" about all of the silly things his children say and do. A must read for anyone who enjoys, wants, or has children.

This is a book mostly made up of Twitter updates from a work-from-home dad as he and his family go through the process of adopting their son from Ethiopia. A funny, sweet, quick read.
