My Good News Bible pretty much stays on my bedside table. Right now I’m participating in a bible study at my church and we are reading The Book of Exodus. This is my second time to study Exodus. I recently studied Ecclesiastes and a few weeks ago started reading/studying Song of Solomon.
I just finished reading Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar. I had come across a couple of WordPress blogs about the book and about Sylvia Plath and became very curious about this book and her life. I agree with the cashier at Books-A-Million. She picked the book up to ring it up and said, “Ahhh…. The Bell Jar— a great book! Not a happy or feel good book by any means but definitely a classic and a good book.” My sentiments exactly. While it was a sad book, and the life of Sylvia Plath was very tragic and sad, it was interesting to me to follow the character’s descent into mental illness, psychiatric hospitals, etc. I was glad I read this book. Though I’m not a big poetry reader, I think I’m interested in looking into reading some of Sylvia Plath’s poetry.
Books I’m reading now and/or getting ready to read:
The Travler’s Gift by Andy Andrews. This will be the first book I’ve read by Andy Andrews. It was recommended to me by an employee at Books-A- Million. I’ve heard good things about this book.
The Power of Praying for Your Adult Children– by Stormie Omartian. I strongly believe in the power of prayer and in this day and age, I feel my adult children can NEVER have enough prayers said for them. I have the pocket-book of prayers that goes along with this book and I LOVE it. I carry it in my purse everywhere I go and the prayers are just perfect. It has a prayer for everything, and I mean everything. Being an Episcopalian, I love written prayers.
The Path to Success is Paved with Positive Thinking: How to Live a Joy-Filled Life and Make Your Dreams Come True– by Wally Amos. This is a Blue Mountain Arts book (who doesn’t love those)? I read a few pages from this book every day. I’m striving to see the glass as half full instead of half empty. What more can I say?
Eat This and Live– by Don Colbert, MD. This book caught my eye immediately. I love the color graphics and easy to read format. I definitely need to learn to make better food choices and of course there’s that never-ending desire to lose weight. I’m looking forward to delving into this book as I’m always interested in learning as much as I can about good nutrition.
