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")

Yesterday I finished Back in the Saddle by Ruth Logan Herne, very good and my first time reading Ms. Herne. I am now reading Deadly Encounters by DiAnn Mills, very good so far. The assistant manager of the Lifeway store was telling me how much she enjoyed this book one of the last times I was in the store before it closed in January. I miss that little store.:(

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that your local Christian bookstore closed, Laurie. :( That's too bad.

I just started book two in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh. It's called "The Yielding" and takes place a few years after the first book. And by "just started" I mean "I'm four pages in" so I don't have a lot to say about it yet ;) but I anticipate that it will be good!

Thanks Catspaw. I loved that little store and will miss it. :( I still have bookstores and my online sources. I finished Deadly Encounter, very good. I am now reading The Confession by Beverly Lewis. It is the second book in her The Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy. I have to finish this trilogy before I can finish another series that is set in the same place.

I'm glad you still have other good ways to get books!

I'm on to the third book in the Age of Faith series by Tamara Leigh, "The Redeeming." I just started, but it actually starts prior to the end of the second book. I could tell by the end of the third book that part of the story would probably happen concurrently with events from the second book. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the book to find out how everything unfolds. :D

Found out on Saturday that Family Christian Store is going away, all 240 stores.:( I finished The Confession by Beverly Lewis, very good. Up next for me is Messenger by Moonlight by Stephanie Grace Whitson.

I'm reading book four in Tamara Leigh's Age of Faith series, "The Kindling." It's a great continuation to the series so far!

I'm also reading the young reader's edition (just because that's what I had easy access to) of "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind." It's really good so far - the true story of a boy from Malawi who built a windmill to harness electricity in an area where almost nobody had electricity, and those who did were subject to regular outages. The story is told very well, with a wonderful voice that makes you feel like you're right there with this kid, hearing him tell his story. Good stuff! I'm not done yet, but I'm looking forward to reading more.

I'm half way through Dawn at Emberwilde by Sarah E. Ladd, the second book in her Treasures of Surrey trilogy. Very good so far.

I liked that one, more than the first book I think. I actually preferred her previous series, but this has been pretty good.

I'm finally up to book five in Tamara Leigh's Age of Faith series - "The Longing." The first few chapters have been quite good, and a bit different from other books in the series. I've really enjoyed the series, but I am looking forward to reading something new!

I finished The Trouble with Patience by Maggie Brendan last night, very good. It had been a while since I read Maggie Brendan. I'm now reading Room for Hope by Kim Vogel Sawyer, very good so far.

Wonderful series, mon ami! I don't believe you can read them too many times, and still not feel delight and wonder.

I'm almost finished with The Two Towers by J.R.R Tolkien, amazingly emotional. Frodo is making me cry.

Recently read Half Magic and The Knight's Castle both by Edward Eager. They are so fun to read. I'll probably read the rest of the series soon. But I also feel like reading some Edith Nesbit books as well.

I finished Room for Hope, wonderful book. I am now reading Redeeming Grace by Jill Eileen Smith. It is the third book in her Daughters of the Promised Land trilogy.

I'm quite excited because I just got the newest Sandra Byrd book, "A Lady in Disguise," and couldn't wait to dive in! The first two books in her Daughters of Hampshire series were excellent, and this one has also been very good so far.

I finished Redeeming Grace, excellent. I LOVE the story of Ruth!! I'm sad to see that trilogy end. Up next for me is The Reckoning by Beverly Lewis. It is the final book in her The Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy.
