Default It's 2009; What Are You Reading?

Can you believe that it's that time again?! I can't! It's not technically 2009 here, but DH is busy saving the world playing Call of Duty, so I thought I'd get our thread started.

There was a lot of diverse reading last year between us SB chicks and I love that! It definitely helps me branch out into genres that I probably wouldn't read on my own.

So what book is taking you into 2009?

I'm still working on Ex-Libris by Ross King. I started it in Austin two weeks ago and just couldn't get into it. I'm liking it better now, but the beginning was a little slow. I figured it would be right up my alley since it's main character is a bibliophile and antiquarian in 17th century London, but it just doesn't have any teeth. Does that make any sense? Oh well. I'll stick with it a few more nights and see how it goes. I may move on if it doesn't pick up.

I've decided to start three devotionals. Now, before anyone gets concerned; they're all "paragraph-a-day" devotionals and I'll be reading one in the morning before I even get the coffee going, one at lunch and one before bed. It should constitute about 10 minutes per devotional. This way, if I find one time of day particularly difficult, it won't require learning new habits; I'll already have the other devotional times to fall back on. I look at it like checking in to 3FC a few times a day even if there are no new posts. It will help to keep me focused. My morning devotional is New Day, New You by Joyce Meyer, the lunchtime one is Daily Splashes of Joy by Barbara Johnson and my pre-bedtime one is Voices of the Faithful by Beth Moore and Friends. All three of them are by women I admire and have enjoyed reading in the past.

Well, off to wait the next 53 minutes out! I'm not so sure I'll make it to 12 a.m., but I'll try!
