life of pi - yann martel memoirs of a geisha - arthur golden prodigal summer - barbara kingsolver arthur - stephen lawhead pendragon - stephen lawhead
..that i'm intending to read in the near future.
i'm in the midst of plan b: further thoughts on faith by anne lamott though i'm afraid i don't like it nearly as much as traveling mercies. it seems like she wrote the book for the sole purpose of bashing president bush. regardless of what you think about the man, it seems like that'd get tedious.
recently-ish i've read..
the historian - elizabeth kostova (i thought it was fantastic) eragon - christopher paolini taliesin - stephen lawhead merlin - stephen lawhead the moorchild - eloise mcgraw book of enchantments - patricia wrede
i hope i do. we only had two of her books besides poisonwood bible at the public library in my town and i think someone told me that the other one we have is a sequel, so i went for prodigal summer. guess we'll see what i think.
the stranger albert cannus?- for class sorda? but not really cause he went over the book, but im not sure he is going to test us on the material(i totally freaked out on him over the lack of time i have to pull up a grade(not a failing grade, but i totally freaked out) due to lack of things he actually is grading us on..soo he is going a little easier on us)....but i like reading sooo im taking it on, its short and i just finished part 1.

thank you for the correction...when the teacher assigned the book i was zoned out and when i came to again he was like read "the stranger"....i had noo clue who it was by and had to google the title...and find a discription that related it to extestentionalism.
I'm still reading Howard's "The Bloody Crown of Conan," but I've also got a dissertation on Richer Nixon's white house rhetoric to read, and I want to re-read Tolstoy's W&P because I've changed in the last few years, and I'll get more out of it since I finished Anna Karenina.

Check out Charles M. Sheldon's "In His Steps." It's great.
