Katrina over at Callapidder Days (cute name, huh?) is running a fun new challenge called "Fall Into Reading."
Click here for all the details of the challenge, but the basics if you want to participate are:
- Publish the list of books you want to read this Fall on your website.
- Link it back to the central "Fall Into Reading Challenge" site.
- Read, read, read.
- Keep in touch.
- At the end of the challenge (12/21/06), compare notes to see how we all did!
This sounds great to me. Count me in.
Here's my list:
Nonfiction (library books all):
I’ve read articles by Frederica Mathewes-Green in Books & Culture, Christianity Today, and Beliefnet for years and have been wanting to check out her books on Orthodoxy. So I got these three through Interlibrary Loan (great program that!):
Facing East: A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy 1997
At the Corner of East and Now: A Modern Life in Ancient Christian Orthodoxy 2000
The Open Door: Entering the Sanctuary of Icons and Prayer 2003
The Language of God: A Scientist Presents Evidence for Belief by Francis S. Collins 2006
Mockingbird: A Portrait of Harper Lee by Charles J. Shields 2006
All but Bev Lewis are review assignments – I’ll update my blog with links to the posted reviews as they appear.
