on the night stand

Do you ever have to stop and count how many books you’re reading at any one time?  I’m not sure how it works, but sometimes I’m happily reading through just one book and other times I can barely keep track.

Currently I’m finishing up the last section of The Jesus Way (as reflected on here and here).  Zondervan was kind enough to send an early copy of Scott McKnight’s latest, The Blue Parakeet.  I’d like to finish that and post a review or two by the end of this month.  This week my copy of Barbara Kingsolver’s Animal, Vegetable, Miracle arrived at our public library branch.  I probably should have waited to start this, but the fascinating interview on NPR proved too much to resist.  This may end up being one of my favorite’s of 2008.

Last week Cathy lent me her copy of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Leadership Journal sent me Coffeehouse Theology to review.

That’s a lot of books.  Too many books?  I suppose that depends on whether you ask my wife or me.

I probably shouldn’t ask, but what has been your favorite book of 2008?
