I love to read and now that the days are getting shorter I tend to read more. I like to curl up on the sofa in the evening with my fuzzy blanket and my 5 year old son curled underneath my arm. I don't have a specific genre I stick to, I'm all across the board. Do you have a favorite genre?
There are three books I just started reading — The Broken Way: A Daring Path into the Abundant Life by Ann Voskamp, Contagious, Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger, and Numbers, Learning Contentment in a Culture of More by Melissa Spoelstra.
If you've read anything by Voskamp you know she has the most elegant way with words in her writing. I recently finished One Thousand Gifts and was so moved by her intimacy with God. So, I'm looking forward to reading The Broken Way.
Contagious is a few years old but in my day job working as an Associate Director of Communications and Marketing at a private liberal arts college I'm curious as to why certain things catch on especially in a social media. I was told Berger offers a great insight into the realities that people don't listen to advertising as they once did but to their peers.
Yesterday at church I began leading our church's women's group in a morning bible study using Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More. Shouldn't we all be learning this? I haven't read or used any of Spoelstra's books/studies yet so I'm hopeful she'll be an author to continue reading.
As I finish each of these books I hope to offer a quick book review. Let me know in the comments below what books you're reading. I'd like to take your suggestions and post for others to see.
Grace and Peace,
