I can't get enough of the written word and am constantly re-reading favorites or looking for new books to challenge, entertain, or teach. During my undergraduate and graduate years this affection had to smolder for a while, like hot ashes beneath a dwindling fire. I was reading then, but the material was forced upon me and, more often than not, left an unpalatable taste in my mouth. I still loved books but so closely associated them with work that I stopped enjoying the process.
Now that I'm no longer working I've been fortunate enough to indulge this old passion. I honestly can't even remember how many books I've read since June. It seems I never have just one book going...apparently I'm making up for lost time.
Here's a list of books I've read over the past week (either fully completed, currently reading, or freshly started):
This book tells the story of healing, restoration, and reconciliation. It's a powerful tale of God's healing and power in marriage and (neat fact) was written by a couple from my church, the Scruggs.
I love history and have always been fascinated by pirating. I bought this book because I heard it was historically accurate and interestingly written. Really enjoying it so far.
Calvin and Hobbes, my dear old pals. These guys have been with me since I was a little girl and just keep getting better with age. I read them almost every night before bedtime. LOVE them.
What are you reading right now?
Books, magazines; take-out menus?
I love hearing what you enjoy.
