Personally, I only read nonfiction. How People Grow (Cloud and Townsend)is awesome!

The Shack is a must read. I also enjoyed the Mitford series, very light reading and fun. I aslo love to read Boede Thoene books if you like detail. They have a little of everything. I couldn't put them down and read 1000 pages in a week. Didn't get anything else done!

I learned of a SparkPeople member who writes Christian fiction. Her titles and story lines sound really interesting if you like mysteries. Her web site is www.teresaslack.com.

Really depends on what kind of book you are looking to read as to what qualifies as a good one!

Lily,
No we are not reading pre-release, but sometimes we are waiting for the book to hit the market. Some of the authors are even part of the group too. It's fun and feeds my voracious reading appetite. LOL

Wow! That sounds very interesting!! Are you saying you read the books before they hit the shelves?

Years ago I used to do something very similar, but with homeschooling materials. I LOVED being able to see,read,use and give my opinion!!

That does sound like alot of fun!!!

Oh my! I've read that series! I had forgotten the title of the book. Thanks for the reply.

Thomas Kinkade and Katherine Spencer have a trilogy that's charming with a few twists. I can only remember the title A Gathering Place. The characterization is well done, an important feature for me. Truthfully I would not have picked up the first book if my mother had not recommended it...because of the Kinkade name.

I belong to the ACFW (A-something Christian Fiction Writers) Book Club and so get to check out Christian writers that way. It's a Yahoo club where we read a book a month, discuss it and then chat with the author. There are six loose genre categories that cycle through the year. It's free and you don't need to belong to the ACFW organization to join. I've really enjoyed it. We are currently reading a new historical romance release called "Petticoat Ranch." We just finished reading "Lost in Nash Vegas" and "Hazardous Duty."

HI!!
Recipes and Wooden Spoons by Judy Baer

This book is part of the Tales from Grace Chapel Inn.

It is a wonderful story of a woman who comes back home to live with her sisters and they turn their childhood home into an Inn after their pastor dad dies! One of them was born and her mom died giving birth and she finds her moms recipe box.. It is delightful... some little mystery lots of love and ministering.....

Lily,
What is/are Wooden Spoons? Is that another food-oriented mystery series? Always looking for new authors! Read all Mitford books and working on Angela Hunt's.

Thanks,
Becca

I also love to read and have read many books from the authors you mentioned. I also enjoy Gilbert Morris. He has many series. I love to read Max Lucado too. He is not a fiction writer, but his books help me alot. Lots of spiritual advice!

I'll recommend some authors that I like:

Debbie Macomber - her Cedar Cove series, her Good Yarn set (she's not "Christian" romance but most of her books are tastefully done)

Karen Kingsbury - her Redemption series, Tuesday Morning set (I've liked everything I've read by Karen and she is a Christian author)

Dee Henderson - O'Malley series (Christian author with mystery/suspense bent to the romance...at least with this series)

Sarah Graves - Home Repair series (mystery)
Carolyn Hart - Death on Demand series (mystery)
Both the above are secular authors

I tend to like books with good characterization and humor. I read to escape so I don't like deep, heavy books usually.

Have any to recommend to me?
Happy reading!
