Inspired by Lora's Thursday 10 list, I wanted to share with you what's currently on my bookshelves. Figuratively, of course, because literally we'd go well over 10.
This picture was taken by Jay after he moved his books in (the right side). The left side is entirely mine and now also full. These shelves will be one of the things I miss the most when we move.
I'm Currently Reading:
This is one I'm reviewing for Book Sneeze. Its a fun, easy fiction read. However, I'm in the middle of several other books (see below) so I'm slow getting through it. Reading a chapter of each at a sitting makes for slow progress.
I wasn't a fan of the Power of a Praying Wife, and didn't like this one at first either. It came in one of the boxes of "Christian Living" books Jay bought for me a couple of Christmases ago. I will say, that these past few chapters of Light have been applicable and helpful, thus changing my over all opinion of the book.
This book is a collection of short stories - light hearted and very easy to read. I wouldn't enjoy this type of writing as a full novel, but I like keeping the book in my car to pass time when I'm waiting. (At a doctor's office, meeting a friend to go for a run,
sitting at a red light/in traffic)
I'm taking this book a chapter at a time to afford myself time to really ponder the author's position. While I like his reasoning style, I'm not sure how effective it would be as an apologetics book written to the non-Christian audience.
I'm only a chapter into this book, so I can't say much about it, only I was glad to download it as I am going through the book of Acts for my Bible-in-a-Year plan. I'll be done with books 2 & 4 in the next day or so, and hope to get to a point in this book where my Bible reading and the book chapter line up. Thankfully my chronological plan has me in Romans/Corinthians for the next week or so, while I catch up in the book.
On my To-Read shelf
I received my copy in the mail this week and am excited to get started. My goal is to always have 3 books going: fiction, non-fiction, & car-reading, so I'm going to have to hold off for a bit on this.
My mother and I love the Stephanie Plum series, so I pre-ordered this book for her for her birthday. No doubt she'll pass it on to me when she's done with it (if not before).
Crichton was my favorite author and this is the last of his books (published posthumously). I hate to read it really, because I'll never have another new book of his to be excited about reading.
Recommended by Marla, this title is pretty self explanatory. I haven't, however, figured out a way to buy a new book that teaches me how to not buy new things. Library perhaps?
This book came on my radar because several of my Good Reads friends have read and liked it.
What are you reading these days? Should I add it to my list?
