Book Sale Recap

Have to share, it was incredible!  They had so many books this year they did not even put them in alphabetical order by author… actually made it more challenging but I think I was up to it. Oh the books – the beautiful books…….

UN Christian by Dave Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons

For the past few months I have been digging into this book slowly processing and re reading and  telling you now – I think I have struck gold. Christians are supposed to represent Christ to the world. But according to the latest report card,…

What dreams may come…

You would think with my never ending stack of books at home to be read, and the not as big but just as popular pile of books to read again…. I would be satisfied. Not to mention, my current books that I am reading:…

A Letter…

Dear Barnes and Noble, It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that I am breaking up with you.  After much consideration and making of mental pro/con lists – I feel it is best if we take this no further and end…

Brainerd Library Book Sale

Ok… I almost hate to share this…. but the Bookie in me (my definition of a book junkie as well as the name of my book club) has to put the word out on this little known blog so I don’t feel selfish.  :…

Hunger Pains by Cynthia Moe

I recently heard about this book from a friend while traveling back from a conference. She was telling me about this book that was written by a co worker of hers who works in the Brainerd Police Department, Cynthia Moe. I was immediately intrigued…

What’s So Amazing About Grace by Philip Yancey

This is my third time through this book and each time I pull out something different. Philip is an excellent writer who tells it like it is. What’s So Amazing About Grace really makes me look at who I am in God – and…

Illuminated by Matt Bronleewe

Take National treasure and trade the Davin chi Code for the Gutenberg Bibles with a dash of Indiana Jones and the pace of 24, and you will have the making of Illuminated. A great read of stolen Bibles and hidden codes. Two organizations both…

The Book of Names by Jill Gregory and Karen Tintori

This Book was chosen by my book club for our March read. First thing I picked up on was this book is written in a Davinchi Code style (I don’t believe it to be as controversial) but had the same fast paced theme and…

Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Decked Out by Neta Jackson

Are you ever in the mood just to let our mind wander anywhere? You are not looking for a heavy read – but basically fluff. A no brainer that you can pick up read a few pages and get back to whenever… if ever….

The Contractor by Charles Holdefer

About a year ago I stumbled across a website called Book Movement. It has reading group guides for book clubs and a monthly book give away by authors who want opinions on their just released books. Well… Hello! I jumped right on this band…

Brother Odd by Dean Koontz

I have been a Koontz fan for years – this man has a wild imagination, is well written, and best of all has an incredible sense of humor. While I don’t follow all of his books, the Odd series has been a lot of…
