I got that book for graduation from my church. \:D/ Haven't read it yet though... :anxious:

Right now I'm reading Flygirl by Sherri Smith. It's about a black girl who passes herself off as white in order to fly in WWII. It's really an amazing read, I shall probably review it once I'm done. O:)

Just finished Leviticus, onward to Numbers! \:D/
Maybe I'll start another book soon. :-

One of my professors mentioned the Flatland movie, which I'm assuming is based on this book. I can't remember why he mentioned it, but I don't think anyone took up his offer to watch the film before our early morning class. :lol: You'll have to let us know if it's any good!

THAT IS AN AWESOME BOOK I LOVED IT, oh an unless you have the other books (asuming you haven't already read them) don't read the end of this book, after it ends they have the first chapter of the next book and it is a total cliff hanger. IT IS TORTURE!!!

I'm reading "The Flying Cavalier" by Gilbert Morris, and "Little Women" oh and "The King's Justice," I can't remeber the names of the authors of either one.

I love the Grandma's Attic books! \:D/ Sooo good. I couldn't ever count how many times I've read those since I was a kid, and now I want to read through them all again!

I'm reading "Maire" by Linda Windsor. It's really good - I've read it before, and it takes place in Ireland in the 5th century. I like Christian historical fiction, and Linda Windsor is a great author.

Yeah, I've read the first few books many times, but I haven't read the later novels nearly as much - so I just recently got them from the library to remedy that situation. \:D/ Unfortunately, they don't have the first or the last of the novels, so I have to read the middle 4 on their own. I hate reading thing out of order! :x

I am reading "Darien's Rise" and "The Grand Scheme" by Kathy Herman. It is the 3rd book in her Phantom Hollow series. She is a great Christian Suspense writer! =D>

Yeah I know I evidently am a big fan of John Grisham :roll: The love started with my mother, she has a bunch of hard backs and she eventually passed that on to me.

No problem! I love passing on good books to others. If you like suspense, have you read Terri Blackstock? Her Cape Refuge Series, Newpointe 911, and Sun Coast Chronicles are fantastic.
BTW, I really enjoy Robert Whitlow too! The Sacrifice is sitting on my shelf waiting to be read! Loved The List. The verse in that book from Ephesians 6:12 came at such a crucial time for me. It was exactly what I needed in a situation I was dealing with. It also reminded me of the importance of remembering my true enemy, and how he fights to keep us close to Christ.

I also am a huge John Grisham fan as well Johnny! I have all his books.

Which one is your favorite? I love The Runaway Jury, The Summons, The Testament, The Firm, and The Pelican Brief (Kind of a lot of favorites I guess). His last two books have left things way to open at the end. I felt like he didn't tie up loose ends in the storyline at all.
