Full of beautiful, heart-wrenching, and hilarious stories, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years details one man’s opportunity to edit his life as if he were a character in a movie. Years after writing a bestselling 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.

  • “Readers who loved Blue Like Jazz will find here a somewhat more mature Miller, still funny as hell but more concerned about making a difference in the world than in merely commenting on it.”

    " After not having read a book in its entirety in over a decade, I read this bad boy in two sittings. It was good stuff. Goya Beans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 6/22/2011

    " A pleasant return to deep thoughts and funny stories for Donald Miller.
    As before, his writing (or is it thinking?) is a bit simplistic, but that's part of the charm.
    Thinking about our lives as stories is not new, but he really makes you revisit the idea in an inspiring way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jena | 6/22/2011

    " I thought this book was so inspiring. I tabbed and highlighted many pages! Certainly worth the read if you are at all interested in vocational discernment or asking those big questions with how your life makes-meaning. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 6/20/2011

    " I love thinking about our lives as "our story." It has provoked a lot of thinking, even had me up in the middle of the night thinking about whether I am living a "good story." Really hit the spot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kindra | 6/19/2011

    " I like how he discussed story... However, I disagree with part of his thesis. I believe we need to find the beauty/wonder in the stories we're currently living... You don't necessarily have go on outrageous adventures to find meaning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn | 6/14/2011

    " Probably my favorite book in years, and that's saying a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 6/14/2011

    " Excellent. This is the kind of book that stays with you long after you're finished reading it. The premise seems simple, but it's one of the most personally challenging books I've ever read. Highly recommended. "

    " I really enjoyed this. I want to add it to my book swap list but not before I write down a few of the passages I want to remember. It's a quick, inspiring read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 6/8/2011

    " Powerful memoir...with a powerful message about how we can incorporate "story" into our own lives. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennie | 6/3/2011

    " This is probably my favorite book I've read this year. An easy but profound book. It has made me completely look at my life differently. Non-fiction, self-helpish but not an eye-roller. "
