I am back, fearless followers! (You know, all five of you.) Whew! That was a crazy end of a semester. However, I graduated, I have a new shiny Master's degree, a teaching license in the works, and things have settled down.
I also got one of my favorite things for Christmas...an Amazon spree. YEAH! I have something close to a gazillion new books to read. Not only that, but I have time to READ THEM. Double YEAH!
So - here is my list of reading-and-to-be-read books.
1. Lionheart by Sharon Kay Penman
2. The Confessions of Catherine Medici by C.W. Gortner
3. The Historical Atlas of the Bible by Ian Barnes
4. Israel: A History by Martin Gilbert
And on deck:
1. Made to Crave by Lysa TerKeurst
2. Erasing Hell by Francis Chan
3. The King's Grace by Anne Easter Smith
Ahhh...new books. How lovely.
I am also interested in getting the book club up and running again. Instead of me arbitrarily picking a book, I thought I would take some suggestions from you. Here is what has been suggested to me thus far:
The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
Erasing Hell by Francis Chan
So let me do this. Please post a comment - either here or Facebook - with a vote for the next book. Or weigh in on those two choices. Have your input here by January 15th. If there is no consensus, I will post a list and take a vote. If there is a consensus, I will post the winner. Alrighty? Come on, we can't let The Ultra Manly Book Club beat us at the book club game! We can read as much as a bunch of smelly boys! :)
Thanks all! Good to be back!
