book list page added
I just added a new page at the top — “book list”. These are books I have read or (re-read) since July 2008, my deconversion period. I prepared little write-ups for most of them but just put a list there ’cause it was starting to look a mess. Feel free to let me know if anyone would like a brief review or recommendation about any of these. And feel free to add your own book recommendations in the comments.
I use a shotgun approach at the library, taking out a bunch of books then skimming them to see which authors I am interested in reading. Then I can borrow or buy more selectively. I have substantially read most of the books on the list, but have not read them all in their entirety, and a few I just skimmed and returned. I listed the recreational reads too, because I can get obsessive about this stuff and need to take it a bit easy.
I am currently finishing up “Crazy for God” by Frank Schaeffer and have loved it, I hope to do a brief review here soon. Just finished “Through the Narrow Gate” by Karen Armstrong before that, also an excellent book. I have always especially enjoyed autobiographies.
