It’s here! My newest book that I don’t have time to read! A friend of ours was having a giveaway over on his blog, Bologna, I was the lucky winner. I am really looking forward to digging into this book, along with all the other books that I currently have cracked open, and all the others waiting in the queue.

I was never one to start books and leave them sitting while I picked up another. And another. Well, now I am one of those. Here’s a sampling of what I’ve been reading lately.

Books I’ve actually finished:
Orange Jumpsuit: Letters to the God of Freedom by Tara Leigh Cobble, is a window into the life of a woman following God wherever he leads. It was riveting, and not at all predictable.
Evangellyfish by Douglas Wilson, is a satirical look at the lives of North American Christians. He writes with cutting wit, and reading it is like watching a train wreck: it’s horrifying, but you can’t take your eyes off it.
Younger, Restlesser, Reformeder: A Good-Natured Roast by Ted Kluck and Zach Bartels, is another satire. What’s life if you can’t have a good laugh at your own expense? This was a much needed read for me. Life’s been hectic and this was a good bucket of cold water over my head to wake me up and help me to not take myself too seriously.

  1. Jean:

    Good to know… the next time I see you we’ll have OODLES to talk about!! love you!

  2. So been there, so many books opened I need to make a list and keep them in all collected on my night stand so I remember what I am working on… Currently though I am in a dry season, nothing has drawn me to the page for a while, hopefully soon.

  3. Read Erasing hell – worth finishing. But everything Francis Chan is worth finishing. Evangellyfish looks interesting – I like Doug Wilson.
