8. "Mr. Murder" by Dean Koontz
7. "By The Light of the Moon" by Dean Koontz
6. "Your Heart Belongs to Me" by Dean Koontz

4. "Fear Nothing" by Dean Koontz
3. "The Good Guy" by Dean Koontz
2. "The Husband" by Dean Koontz
1. "Innocence" by Dean Koontz

Yes I know there is a trend here. With everything that I have on me at this point in time I am in need of a fun release. Koontz's books have been a good choice as I don't seem to ever want to put them down. I want to know what is going to happen next. :)

Yeah it's kind of crazy to like books about vampires and such but they are hard to put down.

It's the first time I've been reading so many books at once, but they all have 30 to 40 quite short chapters, and I'm enjoying reading in this way!

Decided against "40 Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer" Ron Klug (Editor) in chapter 1 - need to keep that for another time I think!

Also started "Future Grace" by John Piper, but it says to read a chapter each day (31 chapters) so, as this will put me behind with my weekly target, I am going to read the following books, which are also a chapter each day type books, at the same time.

"With Christ in the School of Prayer" by Andrew Murray (30 chapters)
"On Being A Servant of God" by Warren Wiersbe (30 chapters)
"40 Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer" Ron Klug (Editor)

I haven't given this any thought but I know I want to read 50 books or more this year -- mostly I want to keep track of them -- I have an old/unused Goodreads account but I don't really want/need another place to login to. I'm here on SP all day, every day, so this is a good place to keep my list.

I have three books that I know I want to read (they're on my coffee table) so I'll start with those

- In God's School -- T.S. Rendall
- Disciplines of a Godly Woman -- Barbara Hughes
- Mastering Life Before It's Too Late -- Robert J. Morgan

and I have a fiction book upstairs that I started last week but I can't remember the title emoticon


edit: and today I got two books that I'd ordered from the States -
The Power of Your Words (can't remember the authors)
and one by Brett Lott about writing (can't remember the title)


My biggest problem is my kindle books -- I get started on them then I forget about them because I leave my kindle buried somewhere. I need to finish a bunch of my kindle unlimited books and return them.

My bad -- I've not been updating my Books Read list as the year progressed! Nothing like waiting until the last minute, sigh. At least I made it past 50 books (I wasn't sure until I finished entering them!) Will do better in 2017...

Hi all -- well, here is my list of books I'm reading this year (which I will mark as "done" when I've completed). I'm excited to see how far I will make it -- I figure I need to read 5 books a month for 10 months to meet the goal, with a little extra time at the end of the year to play catch-up if necessary. Oh my, it seems a little overwhelming when I look at it that way! But here goes...
