Fall Into Reading 2007

I love reading. Mostly fiction. Mostly mystery or suspense or crime or thriller. Something that moves fast and keeps me interested or surprises me at the end.

Being busy with 4 kids, homeschooling, housecleaning (ha!), etc. I don't get to read as much as I'd like so I love this challenge put on by Katrina at Callapidder Days.

Without further ado - the list:

  1. Christy by Catherine Marshall. My husband gave me the DVD set of the TV series with Kellie Martin for my birthday and I want to try reading the book again (I started several years ago but could NOT get through it, I understand now that once you get through about the first four chapters it's much better!).
  2. When Sinners Say I Do by Dave Harvey. Reading with my husband (already through chapter 3 so plan is to finish this).
  3. The God I Love ~ A Lifetime of Walking With Jesus by Joni Eareckson Tada. You know to add to the non-fiction list is a biography. I've always been fascinated by Joni. I hate to admit but I truly wonder what would I do if this had happened to me - I'm not sure how I would've gone on but it is wonderful what God has/is doing in her life!!
  4. Bleachers by John Grisham. Catching up on some fiction from a favorite author. I do like Law & Order though I haven't seen the show in a long long time.
  5. The Camel Club by David Baldacci. Another favorite author though some of his books are more explicit than others (that's a warning).
  6. These Strange Ashes: Is God Still in Charge? by Elisabeth Elliot. Loaned to me by a friend, I've never read any books by Elisabeth.
  7. Treasuring God in Our Traditions by Noel Piper and John Piper. Heard her speak on this topic and I would like to improve more in this area. We might buy her Advent calendar thing this Christmas.
  8. Ten Things I Wish Jesus Never Said by Victor Kuligin. My husband wants me to, enough said.

I'll probably add more fiction if I have time!! :)

Look for upcoming reviews as books are finished. TTFN.

Be sure to read *everything* by Elisabeth Elliott!

These Strange Ashes is, I believe, one of her most important works. Not an easy read, but pure gold for anyone considering service on the mission field.

And when I finally finished A Chance to Die, I didn't want it to end.

Oooh, a fellow mystery/thriller lover -- I'm the same way! I always enjoy Elisabeth Elliott and John Piper, too. Thanks for being part of Fall into Reading!
