On my shelf

Having just finished my 20th book for the year, I thought I’d stop and give a brief run down of the books in my “to be read” pile.  Thanks to a multitude of book review programs and access to some free books at work, the pile is growing faster than I can read the books!  But that’s not necessarily a bad thing.  So here’s my reading list:

  1. The Screwtape Letters, by C.S. Lewis – I found the Focus On the Family Radio Theatre dramatization at my local library and decided to check it out.  Half way through and so far it’s very good.  Andy Serkis (who also did Gollum) does an incredible Screwtape.
  2. Grace and Power: The Private World of the Kennedy White House, by Sally Bedell Smith – this is the first book on a president that I’ve been able to get to this year.  So far, not doing well on the president’s list.
  3. Homeschooling for the Rest of Us, by Sonya Haskins – a book from Bethany House’s book review program.
  4. What Your  Son Isn’t Telling You, by Michael Ross & Susie Shellenberger – another book from Bethany House.
  5. Bringing Up Girls, by Dr. James Dobson – the long-awaited “sequel” to Dobson’s Bringing Up Boys.  Never read the first one so not sure on what to expect in this one.  This is from Tyndale’s review program.
  6. Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction, by Dr. Robert Kellemen & Karole A Edwards – this one has been on my shelf for awhile, but hasn’t quite made it to the top.
  7. Sacred Friendships: Celebrating the Legacy of Women Heroes of the Faith, by Dr. Robert Kellemen & Susan Ellis.
  8. Devoted: The Story of a Father’s Love for His Son, by Dick Hoyt & Don Yaeger – I’m looking forward to this book about the Father/Son team more commonly known as Team Hoyt.
  9. How Lincoln Learned to Read, Daniel Wolff
  10. Billy Graham: His Life and Influence, by David Aikman – this also looks to be an interesting biography from Thomas Nelson’s Book Sneeze review program of “America’s Pastor” . (Sorry, but Rick Warren’s got a long way to go before he can earn that title)

And that’s the list – for now.
