What’s On Your Nightstand: March 2014

What's On Your NightstandThe folks at 5 Minutes For Books host What’s On Your Nightstand? the fourth Tuesday of each month in which we can share about the books we have been reading and/or plan to read.

Feb. seemed long for a short month: March has seemed short for a long month. Of course, there’s about a week of it left, but for WOYN purposes, it’s time to discuss what’s on our reading agendas.

Since last time I have completed:

Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire With God, Not Food by Lisa TerKeurst, reviewed here.

Walking From East to West: God in the Shadows by Ravi Zacharias, reviewed here.

Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder for my Laura Ingalls Wilder Reading Challenge and for Carrie’s  Reading to Know Classics Book Club, reviewed here.

The House Is Quiet, Now What? Rediscovering Life and Adventure As a Empty Nester by Janice Hanna and Kathleen Y’Barbo, reviewed here.

I’m currently reading:

Crowded to Christ by L. E. Maxwell

Bleak House by Charles Dickens via audiobook

The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge for Carrie’s  Reading to Know Classics Book Club for March. I need to step on it with this one!

Wednesdays Were Pretty Normal: A Boy, Cancer, and God by Michael Kelley

Made to Crave Action Plan Participant’s Guide by Lysa TerKeurst and Ski Chilton (which is a different thing from the Made to Crave Participant’s Guide, as I discovered after ordering the wrong book…) It is a follow-up to Made to Crave, and the Proverbs 31 Ministries site has been posting the videos in the Action Plan series and going through this book.

Next up:

The Great Divorce by C. S. Lewis

My Man Jeeves by P. D. Wodehouse for Carrie’s April selection.

The Book of Three by Alexander Lloyd (pub. 2006), first book in the Prydain Chronicles

Other bookish posts this month included one on censorship of YA literature and rereading.

As always, happy reading!

  1. Oooh, you’re reading Book of Three soon! Great! (I am puzzled by your denoting the publication date, though.).

  2. I’ve heard Wednesday’s Were Pretty Normal mentioned on several Reformed/theology-type blogs but haven’t read it or looked at it in any depth. I’ll be interested to hear your thoughts. Crowded to Christ is completely unfamiliar to me, but piques my interest.

  3. Great list. I’ll be interested to know what you think about The Great Divorce. I read it a few years back and found it a little confusing at the time, but maybe it’d be different if I read it now that I’m a little older. C. S. Lewis was such a diverse writer with his styles; I never know what I’m in for when I read his works. 🙂
