I Will Read in 2010

I love to read! I have always loved to read! However, I have not read as much lately as I would like to so I have said I am going to change that this year. Proudly, I can say I have. I am even trying different kinds of books as well. I have already ready 5-6 books this year and I must tell you about one of the ones I just read! I will admit I am kind of partial to all things in the book -
1. It is Christian fiction (a new love of mine)

2. It is about history (an old love of mine)

3. It was written by a fellow FHU alumn who I went to school with

4. It is about Shiloh (Civil War is one of my favorite periods)

5. It reminded me of so many things right in my own backyard

The book you must read - Love is a Battlefield by Annalisa Daughety. I could not stop reading it.

If you are looking for a good read this winter or anytime, you need to check this one out. It is the first in a series of books featuring our nation's parks. Two of the others she is working on are called Love is Grand (Grand Canyon) and Love is Monumental (Washington Monument). I can't wait for those to come out. I am sure you can go to Annalisa's blog and order the book or you can click here to buy the book as well. Go now - you won't regret it!

You might have read the Mark of the Lion Series by Francine Rivers, if you haven't, you need to. They are sad but wonderful books written in the time period after the Crucifixion. I also love the Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers. So good.

I will have to check out your recommended book. I am starting a quarterly book club for the ladies of our congregation, and we will have our first meeting in a couple of weeks. We are starting out with "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. You will have to keep me updated on your great finds in Christian fiction.
