Here’s a quick look at what I am currently reading.

A book I have always intended to read:

The Alchemist

Have you read it?

What took me so long?

A book from a much beloved series:

After years of repeatedly seeing Outlander on

countless favorite book list,

I decided I would read just the first book.

I had no intention of reading the series.

Well never mind because like Caleb I want

to know what happens to the characters and

why mess with a sure thing.

Enter Dragonfly in Amber (book 2 in the Outlander series)

I took the Good Reads challenge this year and I think

it is only fair that each Outlander book count for 3 books as

most are over 900 pages.

Oh well.

A book residing on my bookshelf with a bookmark:

An Arrow Pointing To Heaven is a devotional biography

about singer/songwriter Rich Mullins by James Bryan Smith.

I happened to watch the movie Ragamuffin based on Mullins

life recently and decided to restart the book

and finally finish it.

So many of his songs comprise the soundtrack of my faith

and I am enjoying the glimpse into the faith of a man

who strewn words and music together so brilliantly.

A book I couldn’t leave the store without bringing home:

Friendships fascinate me.

In Friends for the Journey, acclaimed writers

Madeleine L’ Engle and Luci Shaw take turns

sharing about their rich friendship.

The centerpiece of the book is Madeleine and Luci’s friendship

but they also share about the other important relationships

in their lives over the years.

Each page makes me cling a little tighter to my friends.

What are reading?
