2010 Book List

Last year I set a goal of 52 books to read. I'm happy to report that this is one goal I met last year. Looking over the list I see that free kindle downloads play an important part in the books I read. Some of them I probably would not have read if they had not been available as a free download. Some of them I liked well enough to purchase other books in the series. The Wimpy Kid Diary books were read for my nephew Caleb. He and I sat on the swing on my mom's deck and started the first book, then I finished it that evening and asked for another. The next week we went to see the Diary of a Wimpy Kid movie playing at the Maumee Theatre...perfect! Some of the books are written for young adults (8th-high school perhaps). These are some of the free downloads and are quick reads. I read them looking for books I could recommend to my nieces and nephews.
Books that stand out - Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White by David Barton; Tuck by Stephen Lawhead; Spiritual Depression: It's Causes and Cure by D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones; and The People of the Mist by Henry Rider Haggard.
Well enough said. Here's the list:

I wanted to stop by and thank you for reading my novel, Highland Blessings. I have a Kindle too, and love the free downloads.

Blessings,
