It's snowing here again today. This kind of day always makes me want to curl up under my cozy down comforter with a cup of hot tea and a good book. Mmmm...

I've decided to keep track of all the books I read in 2007. Here's what's happening so far in the reading department:

Just finished: Forgiven ~Karen Kingsbury

Christian fiction. Quick read. Kingsbury is no Francine Rivers (who is a favorite Christian fiction author of mine), but... still good.

Now reading: House Divided ~Ben Ames Williams

This is a 1500-page novel about the Civil War, copyright 1947. I am about 1100 pages into it, and it's very good. There was just one section of the book that was tedious-- I got a little bogged down in all the details of a particular battle, so I did do a bit of skimming, but it was only about 100 pages. Other than that one section (which would be my husband's favorite part of the book), I am really enjoying this book. Great character development.

Next up: Better Off: Flipping the Switch on Technology ~Eric Brende

I can't wait to read this one. MIT grad Eric Brende and his wife move to a community for eighteen months and do without a car, stove, refrigerator and running water. And he writes all about it here.

What are you reading?

    Hey Stacy,
    I am going to check out the Eric Brende book, also. It looks interesting! Currently, I am working through The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky.
    Happy Reading!

    I'm glad SOMEONE else is reading. Or is willing to share about it.
    I'm really enjoying the Better Off book. Definitely thought-provoking. Mark says he was worried when he saw that book that I'd be shutting down our electricity! I won't, of course, but it certainly makes me want to simplify!
