Last month Sarah, from sarah did it!, issued a book reading challenge. I took her up on it for several reasons. I *love* to read, that's number one. Reason number two is that I wanted some direction and diversity in what I was reading. And number three ... don't laugh ... I needed a challenge to keep me from being *lazy* in my reading! LOL!
So I picked four categories . . . books that have been recommended, books I've borrowed from the lending library, books I'm reviewing (blogging for books), and books that are faith/walk strengtheners. I'm happy to say I finished all four (and then some) of January's books. I'll be doing a review of Shades of Mercy later this week -- and I have giveaway copies!
This month, I've sort of picked a one-two-three punch for the first three criterion. All three are by Davis Bunn, a favorite author of mine, and all three are part of a single series.
Recommended book: Lion of Babylon (which is also the first of the Marc Royce Series)
Library book: Rare Earth (the second of the series)
Review book: Strait of Hormuz (the third--and possibly last--of the series)
So yes, I'm a bit single-focused, but it's all good. My fourth book actually both fits the 'faith/walk strengthening' category and is recommended reading. It's also required reading. LOL! Our group of MSC missionaries is walking through it together. It's called The U-Turn Church, and I started it last night -- so far it's very good and very relevant to the work Todd and I are doing! But I realized that it was probably not the best book to take to bed ... I wanted to underline/highlight too much!
So . . . that's what is on my library shelves this month. What's on yours? And be sure to head over to Sarah's Bibliophile Files linky party!!
