I'm currently reading The Kind Worth Killing by Peter Swanson. I just started but it seems to be an interesting read.

Latest Review: The Altitude Journals by David J Mauro

I am reading "Who told you that you were Naked?" by Williams. It's a very thought provoking book. I am part of the Christian faith and so is this book. The last book I read was from Judaism. Although there are some similarities between Christianity and Judaism, I felt that the last book left me a little lost (and did not pique my interest). I understand -not sure if I agree with but understand- the majority of what Williams is saying in this book. A provocative read, especially since it deals with a theme (Genesis) that is very important in Judaism but in the light of Jesus the Messiah.

I often read two books at a time, one audio book and one physical (typically a Kindle book). Right now I am reading the English translation of The Witcher Book 1: Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski on audio. I am also just starting Consumed by J.R. Ward on my Kindle.

The House on Sunset lake by Tasmina Perry. Tasmina has a style of her own. I highly recommend.

Currently reading 'Toxic Side Effects' by Sandy Magner. I'm enjoying it even though it is not normally a book I would pick out for myself. I have recently had good luck with books that I wouldn't normally read!!!

I am reading Richard Rohr Falling Upwards which is about a maturing faith in a power beyond ourselves . He uses not only the great stories or myths of the christian faith -he is a franciscan monk. He also parallels the hero myths of other traditions. It is a challenging book for me to think outside the sqaure of some of my entrenched ideas and gives me freedom to explore new ideas Barry Fernley

I'm currently reading "The Time Keeper" by Mitch Albom. So far it is incredibly insightful and has definitely influenced my thinking in regards to time and how we measure it and obsess over it to an unnatural extent. I love everything I have read by Mitch Albom and this might be my favorite yet.

I have started Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell, which, I recall, has been the subject of considerable discussion in these forum pages in the past.
I wondered if that was how forgiveness budded; not with the fanfare of epiphany, but with pain gathering its things, packing up, and slipping away unannounced in the middle of the night.

I am reading Everdream on Amazon Kindle. First I thought this is going to be one of many twilight fanfiction books (because it is about vampires) but actually it is not. I got it for free and I am already obsessed with it.
