What I'm Reading

Once in a while I post about what I am reading.

I have signed up for my library's adult summer reading program. I am supposed to read and review books, each of which will count towards our town's goal of reading 10,000 books. If we make it the School Superintendent and Town Administrator will jump in the local lake.

So.. I think I am supposed to read stuff from the adult section of the library. I have read the biblical book of James and I guess that counts.

For fiction, though, I was for some reason drawn to reading A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle. I was recalling the rune contained in it, went to look at it, and ended up reading the whole story. It's a good one, too. If you haven't read L'Engle's time quintet, I strongly recommend going for it.

That lead me to remember something from the story line of A Wind in the Door, the second book in the quintet. So I read through that, too. It's about stopping seeking our own pleasure and maturing. That is actually what lead me to read James, because that book focuses on maturing in faith and action.

So that's what I'm reading. Haven't decided if I'll review them for the adult program yet, and I need  a new book. Very open to suggestions.

So what have you been reading? 
Why were you drawn to that book?


  1. I am currently reading Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult because a friend loaned it to me. So far it's a great read and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I might even give it four stars on GoodReads. We'll see how it goes; I'm only about 1/4 of the way into it.

  2. I read almost anything about gardening or farming and am currently reading several books at once. They are Organic Hobby Farming, Your Farm in the City, The joy of keeping a root cellar, Homegrown Honey Bees and doing a study of 1 Peter.
