If you ever find yourself in Portland, OR, you must must must set aside an afternoon--no, a whole day--to visit Powell's City of Books. It is the largest independent used and new bookstore in the world, and the main location spans an entire city block. Sadly, I was limited in what I could bring home on the plane.
I have heard only good things about Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay, so it has been on my to-read list for quite some time. I'm about a third of the way through and so far, it's living up to expectations!
Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom by John O'Donohue. I'd actually like to read quite a few books by this Christian author, but thought I'd start here.
Acedia & me by Kathleen Norris. Yep, her again. I think Norris has become my Donita K. Paul of nonfiction.
Raven's Ladder by Jeffrey Overstreet is the third book in The Auralia Thread, a wonderful Christian fantasy series.
Valley of Dreams by Lauraine Snelling--I know, I know, I wasn't terribly impressed with the last book I read by her, but this one's a historical novel about a trick rider in a Wild West Show. I'll give her another chance.
The Book of God by Walter Wangerin, Jr. is essentially the Bible written as a novel. I'm intrigued.
