Regarding what I've read...

I spend a lot of time reading. I think it would be cool to begin letting y'all know what I am finishing. If you want reviews (or have suggestions for future reads) let me know!

Here is an approximate list of what I have read so far in this country (excluding the 3 or 4 volumes I am working on right now) and a very concise review of each:

"The Far Pavilions" by M.M. Kaye (Still my favorite novel of all time.)

"Cross of Christ" by John Stott (Meaty and applicable. A new staple of my library.)

"Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff" by Christopher Moore (Funny and thought provoking.)

"The Fellowship of the Ring" by JRR Tolkien (Brilliant.)

"The Two Towers" by JRR Tolkien (Brilliant.)

"The Return of the King" by JRR Tolkien (Brilliant.)

"A People's History of the United States" by Howard Zinn (I alternated between loving it and
wanting to burn it.)

"Truman" by David McCullough (Worthy of the Pulitzer it won.)

"Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen (I don't know where this author has been all my life!)

"The Irresistible Revolution" by Shane Claiborne (Get ready to be seriously challenged about the
way you live your faith.)

"Dragon" by Clive Cussler (Terrible. I would rather read toilet paper.)

"Collected Essays" by Ralph Waldo Emerson (I am enjoying being exposed to a brilliant mind.)

More to come!
