librarian4Him02 | 234 comments Hello All,

I made it through 50 books last year, so thought I'd try it again this year. So far I'm up to two, though I'm in the middle of two books right now. Here's what I've read so far:

1. Stones Cry Out by Sibella Giorllo
2. A Light in the Window by Jan Karon (on CD)
3. Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin
4. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (on CD)
5. Hood by Stephen R. Lawhead
6. A common Life by Jan Karon (on CD)
7. These High Green Hills by Jan Karon (on CD)
8. Out to Canaan by Jan Karon (on CD)
9. Eat, Drink, and Be from Mississippi by Nanci Kincaid
10. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (on CD - Jim Dale Narrating)
11. The 39 Clues: One False Note by Gordon Korman

Looking forward to checking out everyone else's list.

Juli

Mary Todd (marytodd) | 924 comments I've been out of town...here's a cheer for your first ten...HUZZAH!

Don't you love the reader of the Mitford stories? I'm pretty much not into organized religion, but I love this series~

Thanks Mary Todd. I do like the reader of the Mitford books. I find Father Tim an inspiring character. I'd love to be able to relate to the kids in my life the way her relates to Dooley.




librarian4Him02 | 234 comments Now that I've been around for a bit and seen how other people post, I really like the month by month method that some have been using. So, since I"m home sick with lots of time on my hands, I've decided to repost my list month by month.

January

1. Stones Cry Out by Sibella Giorello
2. A Light in the Window by Jan Karon (on CD)
3. Chasing Fireflies by Charles Martin
