It's Monday. What Are You Reading? (January 4, 2010)

J. Kaye's Book Blog hosts this lovely little meme on Monday. Come dish with us!

FINISHED LAST WEEK (I didn't have to work between Dec 24 & Jan 3 so reading this many books in a week is "unusual" for me)
Cottonwood Whispers - Jennifer Erin Valent
Dear John - Nicholas Sparks
Same Kind of Different As Me - Ron Hall & Denver Moore (January Bloom Book Club Selection)
Secrets of the Secret Place (this was a devotional I'd been working my way through most of the year and FINALLY finished it.

If I Perish - Esther Ahn Kim
This is an autobiography called out in Francis Chan's book Forgotten God. Esther Ahn Kim (her married name) was a Korean Christian who spent six years in Japanese prisons during WWII as a result of her faith. As she prepared to be martyred, Miss Ahn's courageous activities in prison brought the light of the Gospel to many, and resulted in a reduction of the brutal torture of the Christians.

The Sound & the Fury - William Faulkner (its on my List of Books to Read Before I Die) so I want to tackle one on the list each month. Besides...I started in December and then abandoned it. Time to pick it back up.

The Sound & the Fury completely turned me on to William Faulkner... but if you take recommendations? It's a lot easier to get through with a plot summary nearby!
