Reading

Reading, I rarely do enough of it. I am easily distracted and start with good intentions of reading but instead I end up watching a stupid TV show or doing something else. Yet, I know that reading stirs and strengthens my soul. When I get on a roll with reading I recognize a depth to my life that isn't always there when I'm not reading as much. So today, I'm wondering, what are you reading? Who are you reading? I would love for you to share some of your favorite books or authors in the comment section.

For what it's worth here is a list of some of my favorite authors (in no particular order):

Barbara Brown Taylor
J.K. Rowling
Mike Yaconelli
Ted Dekker
Max Lucado
William Willimon
Dee Henderson
Stephen King
Frank E. Perreti
C.S. Lewis

How about you? What's on your list?

I just finished reading "The Shack" and found it to be very powerful! I would recommend to anyone who is trying to build or repair relationships including that with God. The feeling of love and purpose was overwhelming!!

I'm re-reading The Brothers K by David James Duncan. Truly my favorite book ever.

(Though I usually read "It" every year, so maybe that's my favorite book. Stephen King does have a way with words.)

Keli, I just finished "The Shack" as well and would agree it is an excellent read...

Moe, I think I need to read "It"... I've read a few other King books and have enjoyed them. I think I just might need to read more.
