Fall into a Cozy Chair

Ok, take a deep breath, exhale, and say hello to autumn. Wow! Time flies, doesn't it? I'm going to commemorate autumn by joining Fall into Reading, hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days.

Simply put, make a list of books you want to read and read them. Here is my list:


Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis
Because I always enjoy C.S. Lewis and haven't read Mere Christianity
--this book brings together Lewis's legendary broadcast talks of the war years, talks in which he set out simply to 'explain and defend the belief that has been common to nearly all Christians at all times'. (Borders.com)

Fearless by Max Lucado
This book has been recommended by a friend and I always enjoy Max Lucado.
This resource from beloved pastor Lucado describes how to break away from fear--with God's help--and how to empty a heart of fear and fill it with faith instead. (Borders.com)

Girl Meets God by Lauren F. Winner
The child of a Jewish father and a lapsed Southern Baptist mother, Lauren F. Winner chose to become an Orthodox Jew. But even as she was observing Sabbath rituals and studying Jewish law, Lauren was increasingly drawn to Christianity. Courageously leaving what she loved, she eventually converted. In "Girl Meets God", this appealing woman takes us through a year in her Christian life as she attempts to reconcile both sides of her religious identity. (Borders.com)

The Unlikely Disciple: A Sinner's Semester at America's Holiest University by Kevin Roose
Armed with an open mind and a reporter's notebook, Roose dives into life at Liberty University with the goal of connecting with his evangelical peers. He experiences their world first-hand, in this hilarious and heartwarming, respectful and thought-provoking chronicle. (Borders.com)
Fresh Grounded Faith by Jennifer Rothschild
The author of "Self Talk, Soul Talk" shares a cup of inspiration to help women make it through the daily grind. Rothschild's Fresh Grounded Faith conferences are reaching thousands of women and this devotional is the perfect way to take her special blend of inspirational teaching home for every day. (Borders.com)

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul's letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words. "Life Together" is bread for all who are hungry for the real life of Christian fellowship. (Borders.com)

Men are like waffles, Women are like spaghetti by Bill Farrel
This book was recommended by a friend and I totally forgot about it until I saw it on Lisa Notes...
Bestselling authors serve up just the right combination so that readers can feast on enticing ways to keep communication cooking and let gender differences work for--not against--them. End-of-chapter questions and exercises make this a terrific tool for all relationships. (Borders.com)


Firefly Lane by Kristen Hannah
They were known as the Firefly Lane girls-a single, inseparable unit.
The best friends promise to be there for each other forever-and for 30 years, that promise holds strong. Then events and choices make that promise impossible. (Borders.com)

The Time Travelers Wife by Audry Niffenegger
A dazzling novel in the most untraditional fashion, this is the remarkable story of Henry DeTamble, a dashing, adventuresome librarian who travels involuntarily through time, and Clare Abshire, an artist whose life takes a natural sequential course. Henry and Clare's passionate love affair endures across a sea of time and captures the two lovers in an impossibly romantic trap, and it is Audrey Niffenegger's cinematic storytelling that makes the novel's unconventional chronology so vibrantly triumphant. (Borders.com)

Heaven's Wager by Ted Dekker
Kent Anthony is a brilliant software engineer who is cashing in on a brilliant career. But on one very, very bright day everything goes very, very wrong. This fascinating story of the (almost) perfect crime in Denver is also tale of bittersweet love that is (almost) enough to save a soul. (Borders.com)

Now it's time for me to curl up in a cozy chair, grab a cup of coffee and start reading!


  1. Wow! I am impressed at the list, the length of the list and the fact that you have the assumption that you will be able to actually read something on the list! I never have time to read during the school year. I LOVE to read, but have to save it for Christmas break or summer! Happy reading, let us know which ones are worth the read!

  2. Great list. I am intrigued by The Unlikely Disciple.

  3. Great list. I want to see the movie The Time Travelers Wife... but first I want to read the book, it may get added to my list.
    Happy Reading. Jovi

  4. Exciting list. Have fun with the books you've chosen.

    Happy Reading!

  5. Enjoy the books on your list! Firefly Lane was good.

  6. Sometimes I don't like to admit when I read alot... I think people think I shouldn't have time to read...I don't...sometimes I just MAKE the time and it is so worth it!! There are 3 on your list that I have added to my after-the-challenge list! I have already added to it and I was really just trying to clean off the nightstand and surrounding floor and return some to my mom...
