What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

Currently reading The Media Lab by Stewart Brand. Super old book, published in the late '80's, but I'm really enjoying it. Loads of incredibly smart people waxing eloquent about the potential of technologies that are now either common place or antiquated. It's nostalgic in a delightfully hopeful way.

That sounds like an interesting read!

I'm just starting "Cold Case Secrets" by Maggie K. Black. It's going to wrap up a mystery with hints in the last three books, so I'm really looking forward to that!

I finished The King's Mercy, very good. Up next for me is Lady Jayne Disappears by Joanna Davidson Politano, first time reading this author.

I'm reading "The Way of Letting Go" by Wilma Derksen. It's non-fiction and written by a woman whose daughter was murdered in 1984 and her journey of forgiveness, with some principles that apply to a variety of traumatic situations. It's a very moving story so far, and I knew before I even started that it wouldn't wrap up neatly from a point of earthly justice, making her faith through decades of wondering and years of trials and retrials all the more amazing.

I finished Lady Jayne Disappears. Awesome book, I highly recommend it. Up next for me is A Harvest of Hope by Lauraine Snelling. It is the second book in her Song of Blessing series.

I'm reading "Love Does" by Bob Goff. It's hilarious - he has such a way with words that I actually had to stop reading and wipe my eyes because I was laughing so hard! He also packs a lot of truth in about loving others and loving God.

I'm reading "Never Say Die: The Story of David Yone Mo and the Myanmar Young Crusaders" by Douglas Hsu. It's a fascinating biography about one man's journey from years of drug addiction to a miraculous healing leading him to Jesus to helping tons of other people in Myanmar/Burma. I'm not quite done yet. I would definitely recommend it!

I'm reading The Timepiece by Beverly Lewis. It is the sequel to The Tinderbox and picks up right where The Tinderbox ended. Very good so far.

I just started reading a biography of George Mueller published in 1941. I know a bit about him and thought his biography would be well worth a read!

I finished The Timepiece, wonderful book. Up next for me is The British Are Coming by Rick Atkinson. This is the first (non fiction) book in a trilogy about the American Revolution.

That sounds really interesting, Laurie!

I started "Sixty Acres and a Bride" by Regina Jennings last night. I read it years ago and decided to read it again.

I finished The British Are Coming, very good book. Now I have to wait for the next book in the trilogy. Up next for me is Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon. It is the third and final book in her Code of Honor trilogy.

I'm reading "Love in the Balance" by Regina Jennings. I read it years ago and actually don't remember it very well, so it's been fun!

Tamera Alexander is such a great author! :D

I'm reading "Maniac Magee" by Jerry Spinelli. I read it many years ago and it's such a great book that I'm so glad that I decided to read it again.

Nice! No Ocean Too Wide looks really interesting. I'd like to read it one day.

I'm about to start "Caught in the Middle" by Regina Jennings. I read it years ago but don't really remember it well.

I read the first one in the Silent Years series but not the other ones. I'll have to find them. You have great taste in books, Laurie. :D

I'm reading "The Walls are Talking" by Abby Johnson. It's very interesting, though not an easy read.
