Vacation Reading

I am a couple of days into an extended vacation that will take me and the family through the first of the year. This is the time of year we like to take long vacations. Year’s end musicals are very time-consuming and stressful, and mine and Jamy’s anniversary makes December a good time for a break. Oh, and Christmas too.

I love to read, but don’t get much time to do so. I have selected a few books to read during the next couple of weeks. I don’t have much to say about them, since I just started some of them. Here they are…

Return to Worship by Ron Owens

The Certainty of the Faith: Apologetics in an Uncertain World by Richard Ramsey

The Passion of Jesus Christ by John Piper – This book was given to me by our Minister to Students and Education, Larry Bragg.

The complete Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy collection by Douglas Adams – I have read this large book a couple of times before. Still makes me laugh out loud.

Bible – Love my new Bible. Am spending more time reading it.

What are you reading?
