Barbara | 10 comments I think it will be fun to find books that start with a different letter of the alphabet. Haven't decided yet if I'll try to do them in alphabetical order or just randomly.

Susy (susysstories) Wishing you the best of luck with your challenge Barbara & a very happy New (reading) Year!

Have you decided yet if you'll be reading them in order or randomly?

Barbara | 10 comments Guess I'll read them randomly. Started with S. I read The Stranger in the Woods. It was interesting because it was a true story. I wanted to be sympathetic to the main character but he broke the law many times so it was hard.

Barbara | 10 comments In Order to Live - excellent book!!!! Hard to believe that people who live so close to a modern, thriving nation are starving and dying because of their megalomaniac leader. Admire the courage and determination of the author to not only survive, but to thrive! Bravo!

Barbara | 10 comments The Rooster Bar by John Grisham was not one of his better efforts. The main characters were completely unsympathetic, the premise was weird and it was poorly written. In my opinion. I forced myself to finish it, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it.

Barbara | 10 comments Without a Word by Jill Kelly was an inspiring book of love, sadness, hope and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. It is the true story of the football great Jim Kelly, his wife Jill, and their family. Their only son, Hunter, was born with a life-threatening disease and led them to discover much more than football, material things and even life here on earth. Truly moving story.
