Well, it’s that time of the year. The last few weeks of the year where it’s apropos to ask questions about reflections, aspirations, and of course, a question that starts with, “What’s the best…?”
So, let’s do an easy one today in hopes of getting some responses from many people. You know how this works.
- I ask you a question.
- You answer.
- We solve world peace.
So, here are the questions:
- What are couple of the best books you’ve read this past year?
- What are couple books on your “to read” list for 2011?
Best books this past year:
- Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger. Re-read it for the ump-teenth time. Something about Holden Caulfield.
- Testament of Hope by MLK. Another re-read but technically a different experience when it’s not part of a professor’s syllabi. And I’m still reading through it currently.
- Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison. It’s often overlooked because of Beloved.
Books on my to-read-list:
- Sabbath by Abraham Heschel
- Race: A Theological Account, J. Kameron Carter
- What’s so Amazing About Grace by Phillip Yancey. Time to re-read this.
And if you’re interested:
- Here’s the conversation we had a year ago over the same question.
- My personal list of the 30 essential books for Christians. And yes, I confess some of them are a bit too heavy.
