book shopping

What are you reading? I always love to hear what you all are reading at the moment. Y'all give great recommendations.

Here's my nightstand right now.


Just Read: "What Difference Do It Make?"- Kind of a follow-up to "Same Kind of Different as Me" which I just loved. I had no idea this book even existed. Someone gave this to me for Christmas and it's wonderful...it's even autographed. I was so pumped! This is a such a great read!

Reading: "A Thousand Splendid Suns"- This has been on my list FOREVER! Finally picked up a copy and am already having a hard time putting it down.

To Read: "The Friday Night Knitting Club"- Been on the list for awhile too. Now that I'm knitting I might even enjoy it more! Ha!

I have to add that I finished "The Help" over Christmas and it was AMAZING! Add it to your list if you haven't read it yet.

Have you ever read “Redeeming Love” by Francine Rivers or “The Shack”?

I've read two of those... LOVED "What Difference do it make"... inspiring!

And be prepared - the Friday Night Knitting Club has like 3 books afterwards... they are all great - but I'd get them & read them straight through so you can in touch with the characters...

I'm currently reading "My Jesus Year"
