Books, books, books. I am surrounded by books and thought today would be a great day to highlight what books I am indulging in reading.
First up is a book I heard about from Tommy Tomlinson who has one of my favorite podcasts Southbound. Tommy talked about this book Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company That Addicted America by Beth Macy. It is filled with a great deal of information and I am honestly a bit overwhelmed at this point. It is not a book I am going to be able to sit down and read straight through in one sitting.
Next up is The Space Between by Dete Meserve which cam win my Once Upon a Book Club subscription box. I have shared this subscription box before and it is a really fun one. A bit pricey but fun to try out for a month or two. The gifts that come with it are numbered and the corresponding number is placed on the pages where the gifts are to be opened. I am not far enough into this book to form much of an opinion yet but it is billed as a novel of suspense and I love suspense so stay tuned.
Next up is a Book of the Month selection Not That I Could Tell by Jessica Strawser . I have not found a single BOTM selection that I have not liked and this one is no different. Set in Yellow Springs, Ohio this book this book weaves a story of a missing woman and the police investigation that follows. I can’t wait to finish this one.
Finally A Lowcountry Heart: Reflections on a Writing Life by Pat Conroy is a wonderful collection of interviews, magazine articles, speeches and even letters that chronicle the life of this great writer. I have only read a couple selections but the book that I found in Beaufort, SC has a special place on my nightstand.
Another book that I am currently re-reading is Fresh-Brewed Life by Nicole Johnson. I read her first edition of this book years and years ago, got the leaders guide to lead a small group using it is a tool and then never was able to lead it. When I found out she had a newly revised and expanded edition I knew I had to read it and see if it had the same impact on me that it had years ago. It does. I really love her writing and this is a great book for reflection.
What are you reading? Do you read one book at a time or do you switch off books and have several started like I usually do? Tell me all about it in the comments and remember to Comment for a Cause for Bread of Life.
