Spring Reading Challenge


I’m joining the fray over at Callapidder Days  for the Spring Reading Challenge. Here’s my list of books I’d like to read/re-read.

Clouds of Witness  by Dorothy L. Sayers,  “One of the greatest mystery story writers of this century.”-L.A. Times   

The Screwtape Letters  by C.S. Lewis,   “My dear Wormwood,…”

The Treasure Principle  by Randy Alcorn,  “This book is about the joy of giving”

When People are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch,   (Overcoming Peer Pressure, Codependency, and the Fear of Man)

Byzantium by Stephen Lawhead,  An Irish Monk, Aidan, accompanies a gift, the Book of Kells to Byzantium. (Fantasy)

Oops! I forgot I’ll need to read Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling so I’m ready for book #7.

Just for the record I’m finishing Practical Christianity by William Wilberforce, and Living the Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney before I move on to the rest.

Update: You can find my book reviews here;




Let the reading continue!   LNB

  1. Great list! I have never read a Dorothy Sayers book, but that’s definitely on my list of goals. And I loved Screwtape Letters — one of my favorite Lewis books! Thanks for joining the challenge!

  2. Deena,
    The church we attend in California encouraged us to read the “Treasure” book, so both hubby and I will talk through it and give our insights.

    Dorothy Sayers is great! I have to read her books with a dictionary at my side. Older British style, brilliant!

    Thanks for stopping by…

  3. Your list looks really interesting. I started Screwtape Letters years ago, and somehow, didn’t get through it. I may have to give it another go. Enjoy the challenge!


  4. When People are Big and God is Small by Edward T. Welch, sounds interesting and would love to read your review! I should add The Screwtape Letters to my re-read list, it’s been too long! Happy Reading!

  5. Jody, I have read HBP, but my brain is like a sieve and I need to re-read it before the next one comes out. 🙂

    Kezia, I’ve been reading your blog for a while. I only just started one myself and I’m glad you found your way here! And for the record, TAKE THE DAY OFF and enjoy the new book. (You can tell your boss I gave you permission)

    Rae & Nise’,
    That book will probably be the hardest “read” for me but I am anxious to learn something new. I’ll try to give it a proper review.

    Kathleen – Thanks and happy reading to you.

  6. Thanks for stopping by my place! Great reading list you have. I agree, When People Are Big and God is Small., sounds very intriguing. I look forward to your review.

  7. Thanks for stopping by today. I am copying down a couple of your titles to add to a future reading list. Sounds like you’ll be challenged throughout the spring. Enjoy!

  8. Screwtape Letters is awesome, a lot of punch packed into a little book!
    I am adding When People are Big and God is Small to my list, it looks good. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the book idea. Happy Reading!
