Top 10 Tuesday - Books in My TBR Pile

The actual theme is "Books to be Read This Winter" but I figure my current TBR pile is large enough without considering what I want to be reading in January or February:

1.EntreLeadership: 20 Years of Practical Business Wisdom from the Trenches by Dave Ramsey. My dad bought several copies of this book. Philip has already read it. I love Dave but somehow this one keeps ending up at the bottom of my stack. But I will be reading it - soon!

2.Lazarus Awakening: Finding Your Place in the Heart of God by Joanna Weaver. I'm reading this along with my usual devotions but some days all I have time for is my usual devotions and never get around to this. I'm also evaluating this one as a potential book to be studied in a group setting.

3.How the Heather Looks: A Joyous Journey to the British Sources of Children's Books by Joan Bodger. A travel memoir - of sorts - of a family who traveled to Great Britain on a literary quest. I've read the first two chapters and it's charming and definitely my cup of tea, I just haven't given it priority.

4.The Immigrant Advantage: What We Can Learn from Newcomers to America about Health, Happiness and Hope by Claudia Kolker. I was sent this to review but it somehow ended up midway down my stack. Must get to this soon.

5.The English Air by D.E. Stevenson. One of those vintage British novels of which I am inordinately fond. This will almost definitely be finished this weekend while we travel to see family.

6.From the Library of C. S. Lewis: Selections from Writers Who Influenced His Spiritual Journey (A Writers' Palette Book) by James Stuart Bell. Includes writings by Chesterton, MacDonald, Tolkien, and Sayers. Yes, an embarrassment of riches.

Those six are all in my current stack. These are waiting for me at the library:

7.Murder Must Advertise (Lord Peter Wimsey Mysteries) by Dorothy Sayers. I'm really enjoying these mysteries so I hope I can get to this one soon. It will probably jump to the top of the stack. (Some books are tricky like that.)

8.The Pemberley Chronicles: A Companion Volume to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice: Book 1 by Rebecca Ann Collins. Because I haven't met my Jane Austen para-literature quota for this year. Which is also why I have the next two books waiting for me at the library.

9.Definitely Not Mr. Darcy by Karen Doorneboos.

10.Christmas at Pemberley: A Pride and Prejudice Holiday Sequel by Regina Jeffers. Plus a couple other Austen related books. I probably won't read them all but I'm hoping at least one or two of them will be good.

So, what's in your stack? I'm linking this list up with Top 10 Tuesday at the Broke and the Bookish.

My goodness. You are always a reading maniac. And I need to make time for it. I have no children and no excuse.
