Spring Reading

I'm such a slacker.

Since the new year, I've Read through: Christopher Paolini's Eragon, Ted Dekker's Thr3e, Dean Koontz's Brother Odd, Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, and I just started Piercing the Darkness - also by Peretti.

That gives me an average of one book a month; a wee bit slower than I prefer, especially considering the light content of the books I'm reading.

So, what's next? I'm needing something something a little mentally challenging (not to undermine the quality of Koontz and Peretti's writing - they are two of my favorite authors and biggest literary influences).

I'm debating three options: The complete works of Josephus, Malcolm Gladwell's Blink, or Jon Krakauer's Under the Banner of Heaven.

Hmm, what to read?...


  1. Under the Overpass: A Journey of Faith on the Streets of America by Mike Yankoski was a pretty enjoyable read.

    I have the Josephus works, but haven't endeavored to read them through. Figure that is more of a reference book.

  2. Blink sounds like a great read - psychology driven, the stuff I like.

  3. I really liked Blink, as well as Gladwell's first bestseller, The Tipping Point.

    After you finish those two, check out Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner.

    Currently I'm reading Stumbing on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert and I think after I'm done it, I'm going to be able to recommend it as well.

  4. Tag! You've been meme'd. Please read my blog post, right over here to learn more.

  5. I would say Josephus, but I am a classical history geek... guess what! I am going to Athens!
