After writing a successful memoir, Donald Miller's life stalled. During what should have been the height of his success, he found himself unwilling to get out of bed, avoiding responsibility, even questioning the meaning of life. But when two movie producers proposed turning his memoir into a movie, he found himself launched into a new story filled with risk, possibility, beauty, and meaning.

A Million Miles in a Thousand Years chronicles Miller's rare opportunity to edit his life into a great story, to reinvent himself so nobody shrugs their shoulders when the credits roll. Through heart-wrenching honesty and hilarious self-inspection, Donald Miller takes readers through the life that emerges when it turns from boring reality into meaningful narrative.

Miller goes from sleeping all day to riding his bike across America, from living in romantic daydreams to fearful encounters with love, from wasting his money to founding a nonprofit with a passionate cause. Guided by a host of outlandish but very real characters, Miller shows us how to get a second chance at life the first time around. A Million Miles in a Thousand Years is a rare celebration of the beauty of life.

  • “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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicolle | 6/12/2011

    " Loved it - a must read. "

    " 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. "
