I'm participating in What's on Your Nightstand over at 5 Minutes for Books. It's basically a monthly carnival where you can write and link up a post listing the books you plan on reading for the upcoming month. It's a nice way to set some reading goals of my own as well as check out the other posts - where I'm sure to find more books to add to my never-ending to-be-read pile.
I had a good month in January, completing six books. But, I've slipped in February and hardly had any time for reading. I'm hoping to get back on track and at least complete a few books in the upcoming weeks.
Here's what's on my list to read next:
1. Afterlife by Hank Hanegraaff - A theological book dealing with what happens to a person after death
2. The People of Forever Are Not Afraid: A Novel by Shani Boianjiu - A coming-of-age story about what it's like for girls growing up in Israel and being drafted into the fierce Israeli Army.
3. Kisses For Katie by Katie J. Davis, Beth Clark - True story of a young Tennessee woman who decides to skip college and leave her friends and family behind to move to Uganda.. There, she hopes to minister to people and really make a difference.
4. Animal Farm by George Orwell - This classic has been on my list for a long time. I just picked up a copy at Half Price Books and it should be a quick read.
So, that's my short reading list. What about you...what are you reading? Be sure and check out the other posts over at 5 Minutes for Books if you need some inspirations.
