Day #1: Reading Adventures

Within one month (late November through late December) I read the last three novels of the Twilight saga. Between these three books, I logged over 2000 pages in these high-energy, sweet romance drama, vampire/werewolf madness. I loved the books and it was a great way to finish a year of increasing my book list.

So the adventure in 2010 is to organize my reading efforts into three categories:

Faith (books related to my walk with God)
Fiction (novels, "fun" pleasure reads)
For Reals (non-fiction doesn't technically start with an "f")

My plan is to keep one book in each of the three categories by my bedside and commence late night reading. I'll update everyone with reviews, tidbits, and personal revelation I receive from what I read.

So, here is the list for January:

Anyone want to join the book club?

Do you have a goal for a goal set for a set number of books for 2010?

My categories (and rotation) for 2010 is as follows:

Dead saints - Books by Christians of yore. Currently, The Mortification of Sin by John Owen

Living saints - Books by Christians still kicking it. Currently, Romans by RC Sproul & The Cross of Christ by John Stott

Prayer and Devotion - I am not really good with this category of books but I have found some really great ones. Currently, The Loveliness of Christ by Samuel Rutherford

Atheism/Culture/Postmodernism Just dipping my toe into this category has done me a world of good and forces my hand into apologetics. Currently, Nonzero by Robert Wright

Fun Catchall that is not about theology. Currently, Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain, which I highly recommend.

I'm in on Going Rogue. Haven't gotten a copy of Pursuit. Don't like Rice. But I like your three categories. I'm in.
