Spring Reading Thing

How many books can I read between now and June? That, my friends, is the question. I've decided to focus on Christian fiction and non-fiction and to find ten books of each kind from my own shelves. Generally I read books in the order in which the came into the house but, for this challenge, I've picked books that I really want to read for whatever reason. I'll also be reading cat books and general fiction/non-fiction but I want my focus to be on the 20 books I list here:

Christian Fiction

Veronica Heley - Master of the Hall
Marta Perry - Hunter's Bride
Deeanne Gist - The Measure of a Lady
Beverly Lewis - The Crossroad
Janette Oke - When Calls the Heart
Carolyne Aarsen - All in One Place
Judy Baer - Be My Neat-Heart
Melody Carlson - Back Home Again
Liz Curtis Higgs - Bookends
Judith Miller - Whisper Along the Rails

Christian Non-Fiction

J Matthew Sleeth - Serve God Save the Planet
Max Lucado - Cure for the Common Life
Joyce Meyer - How to Hear from God
Ruth Haley Barton - Longing for More
Rob Bell - Sex God
Chip Ingram - Love, Sex & Lasting Relationships
Elizabeth George - Life Management for Busy Women
Christine Caine - Stop Acting Like a Christian Just Be One
Lisa Bevere - Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry
R T Kendall - Totally Forgiving Ourselves

Looks like a great list, Laura! I really liked Cure for the Common Life. And I really like Melody Carlson's books, too. Thanks for joining SRT '08!

Hi, my name is Dustin and I work with a Christian environmental organization called Christians in Conservation: A Rocha USA. I noticed that you mentioned the book "Serve God, Save the Planet" in your post, and I thought that you might like to know that sponsors its author, Dr. Matthew Sleeth, as a "creation care evangelist." We would love for you to check us out at our website, en.arocha.org/usa. You might also be interested in the website for Dr. Sleeth's book, www.servegodsavetheplanet.org.
