I have been reading through the end-of-the-year-reading posts at Semicolon.
What interesting selections people make.
My TBR list is growing. So depressing really.
Here are a few books I hope to read in the next month or so:
Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder By Richard Louv
My daughter-in-law heard I wanted this and bought it for me for my birthday. I have wanted to read this for a while and am looking forward to quoting it on Wednesdays With Words.
Howards End Is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home
by Susan Hill
The Little Way of Ruthie Leming: A Southern Girl, a Small Town, and the Secret of a Good Life by Rod Dreher
Buried in Books: A Reader's Anthology
by Julie Rugg
Holy Is the Day: Living in the Gift of the Present
By Carolyn Weber
Echoes of Eden: Reflections on Christianity, Literature, and the Arts by Jerram Barrs
(Via Sage Parnassus)
Island of The World by Michael D. O'Brien
Well, this is awkward.... This has made my list for 3 years now and I still haven't read it. This year I have done something proactive. I bought it for Kindle. This is the perfect Kindle read since it is so heavy to hold as a real book.
Splendor in the Ordinary: Your Home as a Holy Place by Thomas Howard
Crazy Busy: A (Mercifully) Short Book about a (Really) Big Problem by Kevin DeYoung
(Via Mystie) Already on the Kindle and ready to go.
An Experiment in Criticism (eBook Original) by C.S. Lewis. I have been waiting to read this for years but it was too expensive until the ebook came out.
Sarum: The Novel of England by Edward Rutherfurd. Just got this from Audible. I am so hoping I love it because I love the idea of it. I read about this on a blog post which I cannot find. If anyone knows of a post about it I would love the link.
Finally, I am going to try to join Mystie for the Desiring the Kingdom bookclub. You Come Too.
