Your 1982 picture killed me :) And sadly I think I was wearing shorts as short as your friend that year :) I love your lists o books – but I only have time to read God’s word – and big hairy commentaries – and blogs – lot o blogs – connecting you know :)

May God Bless and Keep you and all of yours this day LIsa

Craig,
It's probably a good thing that some shorts have gotten longer. ha.

Blog reading - oh, how it has cut into my book reading too. I struggle with finding the balance these days, and wondering if it's necessarily a bad thing or just an evolving thing... Definitely connect more with blogs. But still. Pros and cons.

My friends and I were discussing a couple of books on Heaven that we've read Friday at lunch. Heaven is for Real sounds intriguing.

I actually started ready Heaven is for Real this afternoon. An interesting story so far, but nothing about heaven just yet. ;-) I would like to read Randy Alcorn’s book on heaven.

Looks like a great list, Lisa! I read Trusting God years ago and it has really stuck with me -- great book. I read Think last fall. Good stuff, but I had to take regular breaks to let it sink in!

Thanks for being part of SRT '11!

Your list looks great! I just finished Heaven is for Real. It was quick and very interesting.

Have fun!

I haven't read any of these. Wow, it would be a challenge for me to get through that much non-fiction!

I don't read very much nonfiction. It looks like you've got some good, uplifting reads for this spring! Happy reading!

Amy said...

I have heard so many postive things about Think that I think I may have to add it to my TBR pile! :)

I have also seen a lot of people reading/wanting to read Heaven is for Real. May need to look into this myelf!

Happy Spring and Happy Reading!

That looks like a manageable list. I love setting goals, especially ones like this that just give me something to strive for, but no guilt if I don't reach them.
