Behind on my reading...again

Story of my life...I've got several books in progress. They stay on my nightstand, and then I grab one to read while I'm drying my hair (not exactly the most efficient way to get through a book, but a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do!). Or I take one along to read during guitar lessons.

At least there are TWO fiction books in the pile (never mind they are readalouds for the kids...). I'm trying, anyway!

Especially enjoying A Resilient Life by Gordon MacDonald.

What are you reading?

I just started "War of Words: Getting to the heart of your communication struggles" by Paul David Tripp.It is written from a Christian perspective and is really good so far.

Like you, I am always reading several at a time. The other one I am reading is "Disciplines of a Godly Woman" by Barbara Hughes. It is really good.

I have my book club tomorrow night and am supposed to be reading Robinson Crusoe..... yikes, I know.

Instead, I am reading Five Red Herrings by Dorothy Sayers. (she's like an Agatha Christie type author)

I don't think the two meld at all....

:)

thanks for visiting my blog!

Oh, I love Dorothy Sayers! For some reason, I find photos of other people's reading stacks delightful. I don't have stacks, though - just books scattered throughout the house.

You read while you have guitar lessons? Now that's what I call multi-tasking Katherine! ;P

I'm finishing up "Hidden in Time" by Michael Phillips. #2 in a 2 book series. Awesome about an archeologist that finds Noah's Ark and the Ark of the Convenant!

Katrina at Callapidder Days is having a fall reading challenge if you're interested.

Yes, Susanne, I am quite the multitasker, eh? You should see what I can do at softball games!

I'm trying to finish Praying Gods Word by Beth Moore. I started it awhile back and keep getting side tracked. We read the Narnia series to our kids this year. They really enjoyed it.

I'm between two right now -
Blue Like Jazz - Donald Miller
The Taking - Dean Koontz
But they've been on pause for the past week since I've been so crazy busy! You've got some great books there.

Shannon said...

Jewel, by Brett Lott. It's excellent!

I usually have a couple of nonfictions going at once, and one or two fictions, too. I, too, am looking forward to setting some goals in Katrina's fall reading challenge.

Right now I'm just trying to get to Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen...I've been reading it a bit here and there.

I find this time of year when I get a chance to sit down I usually have a craft in hand...I'm hoping to get to reading in the new year!!

Just finished Alas, Babylon! I have The Lady and the Panda next on deck. Read a couple cute kids' books this afternoon. Hunches in Bunches by Dr. Suess (I had never even heard of this one before) and Adventures of Dish and Spoon by Janet Stevens (a cute take-off from the nursery rhyme). My readin goes in bits and spurts. I have about 4 books on hold now at the library. Wonder how many I'll be able to read before they're due back. I read How Much Is Enough (I see it in your stack!) for a church class last spring - it was good.

Hey, your endtable looks like mine, sans dust!

I just finished Terri Blackstock's Last Light and Night Light. I loved them. It was the first time I have read her books.
