Here’s a look at what I’m reading this month!
RECENTLY FINISHED READING:
A sufficiently mysterious and slightly creepy story that kept me so engrossed that I never, no, not once, peeked at the ending, highly unusual for me
It’s about the bubonic plague and as such it is a sad and horrific story but one that I liked. Very much.
All the reviews are spot on: this is a timely, well-expressed, engaging albeit challenging look at the gospel and its implications for real life.
We are reading this as part of my pastor’s Wednesday night study and it has provoked some interesting and intense discussion.
I know the title claims ordinariness but I think I must humbly disagree. Condoleezza’s accomplishments are anything but ordinary and I’m enjoying this glimpse into her background. Her affection for her parents is obvious as is her gratitude for their many sacrifices on her behalf. I like Condoleezza and I like her all the more as I read her story.
READING NEXT (MAYBE):
Maybe it’s Downton Abbey (LOVE!!) but my curiosity about the first World War. has been piqued. After reading and loving Michael Shaara’s war novel The Killer Angels I’m interested in reading one of his son’s novels. And, while I’m delving into WWI fiction, I may also read the classic All Quiet on the Western Front by Eric Remarque.
Will I like it? I don’t know but, again, I’m interested. I think.
Reading a book about reading books? Why not?
Still planning to read through this with a couple of other blogging friends.
I received this as part of a giveaway on another blog ages ago and I suppose I’d forgotten all about it until I spotted it on the bookshelf today!
Of course, I reserve the right to change my mind, follow my whim, and read whatsoever I choose as time and books allow! It’s the same old conundrum: so many books, so little time (and money).
