There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

Jenni - I listen to a book ALL OF THE TIME! Either text-to-voice or audiobook. I don't watch TV or movies, don't listen to music, just books. When I drive, I am listening; when I shop I am listening via headphones; when I walk I am listening; when I cook I am listening: when I go to church I turn off my book! When I'm not listening to a book, I am usually reading.

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

Sharon- I listen while I do everything! I use voice over to listen to ebooks when I don’t have time or inclination to read the ebooks, and I listen to a ton of audiobooks. If I actually had to sit down and read, my list would be much shorter!

I don't know how you girls do it ! I have almost nothing to do all day and night and I just couldn't read that much ever in one month . My hubby reads a lot too but sometimes he skips the stuff he calls " filler, nonsense " . I try to not sit down much of the day ( painful) so I usually read after dinner until bedtime but I have to keep getting up every 15minutes or so . I applaud you both for such amazing lists !

Wow, Connie. That is a lot of books! I think I have around 300 or so. I get through more books listening to them than I do when I just read.

I started and finished a BEAUTY AND THE BEAST regency by Charity McColl. It's a Christmas version and not fantasy! It was free so I thought I would give it a try. It was a good story for less than 100 pages.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

Wow, it seems we both fit in quite a few books for October, Connie. I can't believe that I read almost a book a day - that's more than I usually get in. Your list is huge!

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

I really like Tessa Afshar. My library has only one of her books so I usually have to wait until they go down in price before I can read them. I think that I have the one you mentioned though.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

No list for November ... too much other stuff going on.
I am going to try for 2 books for Dec. and try a new list
when Jan gets here.

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up !

Maryann - Although we love Christian fiction, we also love the Bible and many non-fiction books. It's so good to see you here and getting involved!

I am one that LOVES cozy mysteries. Actually, I love good Christian fiction and clean fiction of most types...I'm sure that's obvious from my lists.

I'm not much into cozy mysteries myself, although I do like reading mysteries; but my MIL likes the cozy kind.

I have an e-Bible called Esword on my computer which I use all the time now. I took that and transfered it to my Open Office word processor and I color-coded my NASB77 version of the Bible (I have almost all of that Bible color coded, specific words I wanted to be able to look for). I enjoy going back over it and re-reading the Bible and looking for new words and words I've missed. It makes me look more closely while I read. I've also gone through a titled each book and found a memory verse for each chapter - although I have forgotten many of those memory verse since going into menopause! But the gist is still there. Oh, and Esword is free! Although some of the newer translations you do have to pay for.

I forgot that I have a lot of cozy mysteries
written by/about Christian/Catholic protagonists.

I also found a bunch of free Christian fiction
on Amazon so I will have lots to read.

Restfinder, the books are a five book series
and they are listed as "novellas". At one time
I had the Kay Arthur Bible with all the color
coded passages, loved it too.

If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up !

Exercise is a celebration of what your body
can do, not a punishment for what you ate.

You'll never change your life until you change
something you do daily. The secret of your
success is found in your daily routine !

MaryAnn, I have a study Bible by Kay Arthur that I use all the time. It's just very easy to use. It's the one that I have color coded.

I love Francine River's books too, although I haven't read any of the ones you mentioned. I will have to look those up on Amazon.

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.
