I’ve just returned from a meeting in Cambridge so I’m posting this late here in the UK (it is 3:45pm).. because I took the opportunity of a free afternoon in Cambridge’s wonderful book shops… I only bought a few- and they were on sale- very restrained for me!!!So with my head full of books I’ve seen and a long wish list in my mind, I bring you a Friday Five on books!!!
1. Fiction: what kind, detective novels, historical stuff, thrillers, romance????
I tend towards fantasy and sci-fi, but not the scary, you-can’t-sleep-at-night kind of sci-fi.
When I was not in school, my patterns was to inhale books. Now, with seminary and the fact that I read seemingly ALL of the time, I am struggling to do the recreational reading I love. However, on a true vacation (i.e. not during the semester when my kids are off school and I am not,) I can think of nothing better than a comfy afternoon on the porch swing, a book, and an adult-beverage-of-choice.!
Well, with the next Harry Potter movie and book due out soon, I have to re-read all of the previous ones, of course. And though I’d never win a trivia contest on them, I do enjoy the Tolkien LOTR trilogy too.
Probably Jesus Freaks. Remembering that my freedom to worship and the history of my faith did not come without the spilling of blood.
5. Describe a perfect place to read. ( could be anywhere!!!)
Now… back to reading books for a class on “church administration” which are definitely NOT as interesting a HP or LOTR, but necessary nonetheless.
