Books of 2007 - March

This is a continuation of the month of Sweet Pea. We weren't getting much sleep, but I had lots of time for reading if I could hold my eyelids open.

1. Fly Me to the Moon by Alyson Noel. Fiction. Chick-lit. Not memorable.

2. Bitsy's Bait & BBQ by Pamela Morsi. Fiction. Quirky and sweet. Disclaimer: some completely unnecessary "situations" towards the end. If you skip that it's worth a read.

3. The Watsons Go To Birmingham 1963 by Christopher P. Curtis. Fiction. Loaned to me by my mother-in-law. Powerful book meant for teenagers.

4. America Alone by Mark Steyn. Non-fiction. Must read! Steyn's way with language is exquisite and his points are sobering.

5. Everyday Cheapskate's Greatest Tips by Mary Hunt. Non-fiction. Not a must read if you've read anything else she's written.

6. The Body in the Ivy by Katherine Hall Page. Fiction. Series mystery about Faith Fairchild. The earlier books in the series are better.

7. The Big Sky by A.B. Guthrie. Fiction. Also loaned to me by my mother-in-law. I have nothing good to say about this book other than she loaned it to me and I didn't pay anything for it. Moving on...

8. Ever Wonder Why? by Thomas Sowell. Non-fiction. A collection of essays and they're all excellent, as Sowell always is.

9. Made for Each Other by Bronwyn Cosgrave. Non-fiction. Must have "sleep-read" this while nursing Sweet Pea 'cause I don't remember it.

10. Wife in the Fast Lane by Karen Quinn. Fiction. Chick-lit, I think. Maybe funny but I can't remember very well.

11. The Spiritual Power of a Mother by Michael Farris. Non-fiction. Must read for homeschooling moms. A true encouragement / exhortation. Which reminds me that I meant to buy it for my mom. Oops.

12. Heaven on Earth, The Rise and Fall of Socialism by Joshua Muravchik. Non-fiction. Just a little light reading. Quite good. Understandable but not "dumbed down".

13. Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud & Dr. John Townsend. Non-fiction. I read this because I've heard many people recommend it (Dave Ramsey for one) but I was...underwhelmed. I think the same thing has been said in better ways other places.

14. Shopaholic and Sister by Sophie Kinsella. Fiction. Chick-lit in the always enjoyable Shopaholic series. And by enjoyable I mean frothy and exasperating. Seriously, if you've read these, don't you want to just slap Becky Bloomwood Brandon? If I actually knew someone who acted like her I'd probably...well, never mind. It wouldn't be Christian of me to say.

15. In Defense of Internment by Michelle Malkin. Non-fiction. Powerful book that challenges everything we think we know about WW2, Internment, & the modern War on Terror. Must read.
