Kite Runner is the selection for our upcoming reading group this Thursday. Will either have the book read by then or be motivated to read it.

I have tried and tried to read Redeeming Love!! It just will not happen for me.....

I did just finish The Golden Compass and it was a good one.

Did you know that Madeleine L'Engle died a couple of weeks ago?
I have read "Victory over Darkness" - an excellant book and must read. There's not enough said in the Christian circles about this subject.

Lisa said...

Yes, I did hear about Ms. L'Engle's death. It was a very sad day for me but I know that she had not been in good health for a while.

I agree with your comments about Victory Over the Darkness. It should be a requirement for those walking by faith. Life-changing.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so glad God doesn't require that all our reading lists match each other's....

I'm woefully short in the fiction department. I just can't read fiction unless I'm on vacation, and when I'm on vacation I don't want to read...

(I can't read it during normal times because if it's well written I can't put it down, so end up losing hours of sleep, not getting things done,e tc. Any advice from anyone?)
