Spring Reading Thing 2009





It's that time. Oh the fun this week going through my unread books and my TBR list and deciding what I wanted to read this spring. I think I finally decided. But I'm going to say right now, things might change up as I read all your great lists and see titles that I've just got to read now! LOL. So far here is what it looks like:




"How the Scots invented the Modern World" by Arthur Herman. The true story of how Western Europe's poorest nation created our world and everything in it. How the Scots created the basic ideals of modernity. Sounds interesting. We shall see.

"Why the Sky is Blue" by Susan Meissner. A mother, a duaghter and a night that changed them both forever. This amazing story of sacrifice and redemption is told by two women, mother and daughter, in their own unique and decisive voices.

"Oceans Apart" by Karen Kingsbury. A regrettable mistake. A terrible disaster. an unexpected chance to forgive.

"My Heart Remembers" by Kim Vogel Sawyer. United by blood, divided by time, willthree orphan-train siblings ever find one another again?

"A Time to Gather" by Sally John & Gary Smalley. Book 2 in the Safe Harbor Series. Drawing on the insights of bestselling marriage expert Gary Smalley, the series explores the joys and struggles of marriage, family and faith.

"Every Now & Then" by Karen Kingsbury. Book 3 in the 9/11 Series. He's on a desperate quest to rid the city of heartache, but first he must find a way to deal with his own.

"The List" by Robert Whitlow. Recommended by my friend. Have no idea what it's about as the cover is missing. It's my surprise pick, I guess. :v)

"Clutter-FREE Christianity" by Robert Jeffress. For a book tour, it looks very good. It's time to cut through the clutter and get to the heart of what it means to please God.Dr. Jeffress points you toward a revitalized fiath centered on becoming more like Jesus in action, attitude and affection.

So there you have it. The initial list. What are you reading this spring? Join the fun and put your link up at Callipider Days.

Oceans Apart was one of my favorite Kingsbury books, and Every Now and Then is on my list as well. It will be fun to compare notes!

I can see I am going to have to add Meissner's and Sawyer's books to my list...

Great list - I just started reading Kingsbury with Between Sundays so I'll have to check out the ones you've listed too.

Enjoy your reading.

I am planning on reading Clutter Free Christianity also. I have Every Now and Then on my list too. I think I want to reread the first two books in the series if I have time because I really do not remember anything. :)
