On my bedside table: books!

Here's what I'm reading:

So that you don't get a kink in your neck:

Beth Moore's So Long, Insecurity

Just got it yesterday and I love it so far.

Francis Chan's Forgotten God: Reversing Our Tragic Neglect of the Holy Spirit

Also good. Almost done.

Rohinton Mistry's A Fine Balance

Recommended to me by some friends in small group. I haven't decided yet what I think. The writing is good.

Deborah Raney's Over the Waters
A novel about missionaries in Haiti. My mom read it and passed it on to me.

Ann Ruethiling and Patti Pitcher's Under the Chinaberry Tree
Recommended here, by dear Elise.

Richard Stearns' The Hole in Our Gospel
Still reading this one, that I started long ago. It's a hard one to read- in a challenging, what do I do with all of this? sort of way.

Mary Poplin's Finding Calcutta
Loving this so far. A Christmas gift from my parents.

Yep, all at the same time. It's how I do things. :)

And you? What are you reading?


  1. Stacy, I loved the Poplin book and stil find myself sorting through what she said-- I hope it's a great read for you, too.

  2. I am reading something by Jen Lancaster right now. I am SO impressed with your multi-tasking on reading. I only read one at a time!

  3. I just finished Hole in the Gospel (I know. shocking)....the problems ARE HUGE, but truly believe that we CAN make a difference....and I feel so motivated by it!

    Beth Moore's book is definitely on my list. And I want to know more about the Poplin book. What's it about??

  4. Just finished The Wonder Years (loved the book, but the ending reeeeally bugged me), and just started Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Really enjoying it so far.

  5. You read like me! Right now I have 16 books stacked on my nightstand like that (wish I could attach a picture) and three on my Kindle. I have started. Top of the stack? "So Long, Insecurity" - Beth Moore. Are you familiar with her blog? They are doing a study online of that book. Four Karen Kingsbury books, "Fearless" - Max Lucado, "Fear Fighters" - Jentezen Franklin, "Captivating" - John Eldridge top the stack. Four management books and a few other odds and ends. Too many books, not enough time!

  6. I *love* booklists! And I have not read any of these! I am coming back daily, looking over what your sweet Ella has read as well. I am so thankful for your homeschooling series and your heart...it is *so* helpful to have your reviews!

  7. I had the privilege of hearing Richard Stearns speak but have not yet read his book. His story is one of those stories that you walk away saying, "only God could do that!" My main read right now is "What is a Healthy Church Member" by Thabiti M. Anyabwile. Would recommend this to everyone!!

  8. Thank you for sharing so many great book ideas. I have ordered up many from our local library. :)

  9. I just finished A Hole in the Gospel. I am reading an antique copy of The Life of Charles Spurgeon.

  10. I'm reading "Dan Rooney: My 75 Years with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL." It's really great. You can add it to your pile when I'm done. ;-)
