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")

I envy you your Christian bookstore Catspaw. I really miss having a Christian bookstore around.:cry: I finished Because It's Christmas, loved it. I absolutely adore Cape Light. Up next for me is Where Dandelions Bloom by Tara Johnson.

I know, it's so great having one. I wish you did too, Laurie. :(

I'm reading "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" right now. I never thought I would get into the books so much, but they are quite good! I see what all the fuss was about a decade ago. ;)

Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite Harry Potter book/movie. I just finished Where Dandelions Bloom. Excellent book, I loved it!! Up next for me is Until the Mountains Fall by Connilyn Cossette. It is the third book in her Cities of Refuge series.

Nice! I'm enjoying the book so far.

I read "The Spinster's Christmas" by Camille Elliot (who also writes as Camy Tang) yesterday. It was a nice Sunday afternoon historical read. :D

I'm over 500 pages through "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." Since book 3 was 300 pages, it was a bit of a surprise to see that book 4 had 600 pages. This is the first one where I've really noticed big changes between the movie and the book. I can see how they had to cut a lot of stuff just for time to make the movie, and it's been fun getting all the extra info in the book.

I just started "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and it's 800 pages, so I might be reading it for a while. ;) I'm probably going to read another book at the same time too, since I have a few books I want to read over Christmas.

I'm starting "Serving Up Love," with four novellas by different authors. I like a nice quick read like that sometimes.

I am currently reading Toward the Sunrise by Judith Pella. Very good so far. This is the third book in her Daughters of Fortune series. This series was published in the early 2000's but can be found online.

I recently read "7 Women" by Eric Metaxas, which was a very good read! Each of the biographies were short yet impactful. I learned more about six women of faith that I knew a bit about, and learned about somebody I had never heard of before. I would definitely recommend it.

I'm currently reading "A Pursuit of Home" by Kristi Ann Hunter, and I'm really enjoying it. We find out so much more about a character that's been in the background of several of her other books!

I'm not familiar with that author. Let us know what you think of the book, Laurie!

I'm reading "The Bride's Matchmaking Triplets" by Regina Scott. Not the best title ever, but a nice light read so far.
