What’s on your nightstand?—March ‘12

Here’s what I’m reading and a quote where I am:

Just started

hunger-games-bookThe Hunger Games
     By Suzanne Collins
Okay, I caved. I want to see what the hype is all about. (Sigh. One week in, and I’m already adding to my Spring ‘12 Reading List.)

Finished

The-Phantom-of-the-OperaThe Phantom of the Opera

If you can’t get enough grace ( I can’t!), read this one!

 

 

 

The-Shelter-of-God's-PromisesThe Shelter of God’s Promises 
     by Sheila Walsh
Jenna and I finished this one last week. I recommend it. It’s a heart-warming book of authentic personal stories and Bible stories, one promise at a time.
