Books

It's no secret that one of my favorite things to do is read! I really wish I had kept better track of books that I have read in my life. Last year I did a pretty good job of keeping a list updated, and I've added all those books to the "books" tab right under the header of the blog.

This year I am doing way better about not only keeping track of what I read, but also writing a few sentences about each book. I'm using Goodreads to keep things organized, and I'm loving it. I have the app on our iPod touch which makes it really simple. Goodreads is free and you can find your friends via Facebook or email who are also on Goodreads...you should come find me! Its a great way to get recommendations for new books.

My favorites from this year so far have been Choosing to SEE: A Journey of Struggle and Hope (by Mary Beth Chapman, Steven Curtis Chapman's wife....AMAZING!), Same Kind of Different As Me (a true story), and Generous Justice: How God's Grace Makes Us Just (by Tim Keller). I've read some fiction, but none that has made my "favorites" list at this point...gotta get to work on that!

I'm gonna have to find you on Goodreads...although I don't think I've been on since I signed up. If you're into thrillers and/or Russian history, you might check out Sam Eastland's two novels, "Eye of the Red Tsar" and "Shadow Pass." I'm not crazy about the plot of the latter, but they're both masterfully constructed. Both are pretty quick reads, also.
