        • I like Mother Teresa’s famous saying... it is always encouraging and uplifting.  It is just my personal preference.

        • I am soooo upset. I went to Hastings in hope of finding one of the books and they didn’t have a single one in stock.  I did pick up the Shack as My boss told me it was a very moving book.  I will let you know.  I will have to go onto Amazon and order some of the books on the lists.

        • Let me know about the Shack as I haven’t picked it up yet. I also heard it was good but I wanted to try to get thru my list before I bought more books.....It’s beginning to look like a library in here.

        • I focus on metaphysical books and will read many books at one time.  One book I really enjoy is Illusions by Richard Bach.  It demonstrates that we live in an illusory world where our playing field can be anything we want it to be.  Like Albert Einstein says, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”

          Vikki, by the way, love your quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  It is exactly how I envision my life.

          Thank you,

          Tami

        • For romance try the Mitford series by Jan Karon; for suspense try almost anything by Frank Peretti, or maybe the new Jerry Jenkins “Underground Zealot” series, Tim Lahaye’s new Series “Babylon Rising“, “The Watchers“/“The Warriors” by Mark Andrew Olsen or you may like Ted Dekker’s adrenaline thrillers; for fun and “girlie” reading, what I’m currently reading (and highly recommending)- The Yada Yada Prayer Group series by Neta Jackson.

        • Vikki, try what I do and get them from the library first, and then buy the ones you know you’ll read again.  I also recommend Half.com for book/dvd/cd purchases; once I’ve finished a library book, based on my own reaction, I’ll then search and purchase...So many recommended Ted Dekker to me, but he wasn’t my style, so I’m glad to have borrowed it first, because I would have been upset having those on my shelf.

        • Ok, I finished “The Shack” yesterday.  I read on the way to Joplin and then in the Hotel Room.  It was one of those books you don’t want to put down.  It was fast paced and insightful.  I would recommend it to anyone.

        • I am now reading the first book in the Yada Yada Prayer Group Books.  It is a fun read that lets me know that I need to learn how to pray.  I am too much like Jodi in that I thought I knew how to pray.  I have been around some people lately that really knows how to talk to God, which is what prayer really is.

        • I just finished Anne Tyler’s Digging to America which was excellent.  Now am reading Pat Cunningham Devoto’s The Summer that Saved Me about what it was like in Tennessee and Alabama in the early 60’s.  Really makes you grateful for how far we’ve come as a country!
