I have a growing stack of books on my bookshelf. It is getting so out of control that it is stressing me out and causing me to avoid reading all together. (I know that makes no sense, but sometimes I don’t make sense.) I continue to buy books that friends recommend, get freebies in the mail, and pick up titles that look interesting at work. All of which add to my problem. My book problem. Seriously, I have all these books in my queue right now. (Don’t judge me.)
The Next Christians (Gabe Lyons) I am fascinated by the conversations about what is next for Christianity. Fascinated.
Margin (Richard A. Swenson, M.D.) I bought this book two years ago. Still haven’t found enough space to read it. And over the last couple of weeks I have heard 3 people recommend it. (Sometimes God’s nudging is not very subtle.)
Bonhoeffer (Eric Metaxas) I’m a little scared by the shear size of this tome but I have heard NOTHING but good things about this New York Times bestseller.
From Head to Foot (Annie Downs) I heart Annie Downs. Not sure I know anyone with as much exuberance and WOO (well, maybe Bianca, but it is a close call). I can’t wait to hear she has to say about offering your whole self to the Lord. Plus, I so admire the story of Annie’s persistence in bringing her dream to reality.
Advertising Headlines that Make You Rich (David Garfinkel) Michael Hyatt suggested this one. And what kind of idiot doesn’t read the books her boss suggests? Pretty sure that once I finish it I will have to go back and rename this blog post.
When You Reach Me (Rebecca Stead) Reading this with some girls at work. It’s the only fiction on my list and it’s actually written for young adults, which will suit me just fine.
Radical (David Platt) Just ordered this one today, because everyone is talking about it and frankly I am sick of not being able to add value the conversation.
Curious. What is on your bookshelf right now?
