If you know me, you know I love to read. Some of my past articles have been on books that I have read and why I like them. So, this time I thought I would ask my friends what they have been reading. Thanks to the social network, Facebook, I posted my status asking for their help. I requested they tell me what book they have read recently, if they would recommend it and why. Here’s what my Facebook friends had to say:
Tammy Nabors Gilbert— “The Shack;” My pastor loaned it to me. Great book! Really makes you stop and think about your own relationship with Christ and what it might be like when we meet him face to face! One of those books when you start reading, you don’t want to put it down!
Sandy Stockton Harrell— “Open Season,” by C.J. Box; Murder mystery set in Colorado with the game warden being the good guy. It’s a series. The author is a native of Wyoming.
Stacie VanDeman Poynor— “The Road to Fort Worth,” by Michael Jackson Smith.
Sandra Lowe— “We need to talk about Kevin;” Haven’t finished yet but really good so far.
Tina Nolen— “Beyond Belief,” by Josh Hamilton; A good read for everyone! Shows anyone can never give up even when they fail!
“Same Kind of Difference as Me,” by Ron Hall and Denver Moore; A true story about an international art dealer and a modern day slave (a homeless man). A true story of love and compassion and how they never die.
