With no further ado, here’s what I spent most of 2012 reading. Books about Royals.
I’m still reading about George, Nicolas and Wilhelm. I read and read and read, then discover I’m only 23% of the way through the book. I read more and I’m 25% of the way through the book. It’s on Kindle so I have NO idea how big the book actually is size wise, but I’m guessing it’s hefty.
Oddly enough, I find the royal history and stories fascinating. It draws out my compassion for the 19th and 20th Century royals. How narrow their worlds.
I’ve read bits and pieces of books, fiction and what not but I’ve spent most of the year writing or traveling and researching. So I had little time to read for pleasure. I skimmed my Kindle to see what was on it and found I have lots of great catching up to do when this current book I’m writing is done!
Besides looking forward to all the Belle’s work — they are truly great, inspiring authors, I’m looking forward to Siri Mitchell’s new book in 2013. I read her 2012 book, The Messenger in a few days. She’s one of my “go to” authors. Do you have one of those? Like, the moment his or her book comes out, you’re on it?
I also read False Justice as it was being written and was honored to add some editorial thoughts to the book. It’s written by my friend Stuart Greaves, Director of the Nigh Watch at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City. If you have any heart or thoughts toward the poor, toward justice, if you’ve used the term “social justice” in your Christian testimony, you must read this book. It’s phenomenal.
For fun, I read Nick Hornby’s “Slam.” It was much better than I expected! I’m a fan now of the young male confessional.
There’s my update. Happy reading in 2013! What are you looking forward to reading?
