If Quotidian Grace Suggests It, I Do It

Go see Quotidian Grace at quotidiangrace@blogspot.com to see what I mean.

1. Number of books I own: about 4ooo not counting the books in the family room, the children's books and TLH's professional library. I didn't count book by book but counted a smaller bookcase then multiplied by how many other bookcases we have.

2. The last book I bought: Gilead (read it, please, it's so very rich)

3. Last book I read: Gilead (not finished as yet), Bread of Angels by Barbara Brown Taylor.

4. Books that mean a lot to me: Wind in the Willows, Gone with the Wind, All Frederick Buechner's non-fiction, C.S. Lewis, Bruggeman, Generation to Generation by Edwin Friedman, Prayer books of all kinds, Anne Perry's mysteries, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Walker Percy, Willie Morris, To Kill A Mockingbird, and many more I will be grumpy about for not remembering to list here.

5. Tag 5 Other Bloggers: If you are reading this, you are TAGGED.

6. What magazines do you read regularly: New Yorker, Christian Century, Presbyterian Outlook, Southern Living and church newsletters from all over the U.S.

My husband just bought Gilead for me while on a business trip. I was touched--it was kind of out on a limb for him, but I can't wait to read it.

Y'all have convinced me. I ordered Gilead today and look forward to reading it. Is there such a thing as a bloggie book club?

Grace, You are the Chair of the Bloggie Reading Club. We are all happy that you are willing to do this. I could bring the snacks.

4,000 books????

Where in the world do you put 4,000 books in your house?

My last bought & read was "Animal Dreams" by Barbara Kingsolver.

Snacks? You're on. Now that I finished "Being Dead Is No Excuse" I have no excuse for not cooking...
