In an effort to stretch myself outside of my reading comfort zone, I’ve decided to read a few different books this year. And I’m quite looking forward to it. What can I learn from these books that are not what I typically read?
And with this new commitment, I am presenting the 3 books I have decided to try out. They include a classic, a popular author in a genre I don’t read, and a non-fiction book; an eclectic collection at best!
I chose this classic because it’s a popular one, and there’s all these movies based on this series. Maybe I’ll watch them someday if I can get myself through this book. And Jamie over at Books & Beverages always hosts Inklings Discussions, which has helped inspire me to read what I’m sure is a masterpiece.
I feel like Ted Dekker is a super popular author and I am the only person who has not read his books. Full disclosure: I tried to read this one over a year ago at a friend’s prompting, but couldn’t get past the first few chapters. Here’s to my second try!
Another dear friend of mine gave this book to me for Christmas and I am pretty excited to read it. If you haven’t seen Jefferson Bethke’s viral video from a few years back, you have to watch it. I’ve always been interested in his books, so I had to add it to this list. And I’ve already started this one, and so far I’m liking it!
