I love books. I am an addicted reader. Guess that's good since my job does involved quite a bit of reading and writing! For ten years or so, I have made it a New Year's Day tradition to hit a local bookstore and browse slowly up and down the aisles and aisles of books. It's a quiet way to spend a few hours and for some reason, it motivates me to get my game face on for the new year. I usually pick up books that have something to do with the resolutions or goals I have set for myself for the coming year. Today I shared my tradition with a friend and we spent close to 3.5 hours in Barnes and Noble. We browsed the Christianity section, the non-profit area, gardening and the clearance section. Then we found a table and had quiet conversation (solving most of the world's problems) and took careful inventory of the $300-$400 worth of books that were stacked before us. Which ones did I choose????
I'll list them below. I'm curious- what are you reading this year. You'll notice I have some books posted here on my blog--that's some great Christian non-fiction that I have the honor to help promote through my job.
Anyway...here's what I am reading:
1. Grow Vegetables- Allan Buckingham
2. Dallas Planting Guide
3. Churched- Matthew Paul Turner
4. Velvet Elvis- Rob Bell
5 Asian Food Cookbook
