I tend to read more than one book at a time. When I say that, I mean I tend to read many books at a time. today I cleaned out my bedside books and these were the ones I had. Over 20 books were there. I know there are only 18 in the picture but I had already put a couple away before I stacked them all into a pile and realized how many there were. I’ve read all the fiction books in their entirety, but several of the non-fiction are left unfinished. I read Is Jesus a Democrat or Republican, Following Jesus without Embarrassing God, Jesus for President, and Blues and Evil, but the rest… not so much.
What do these books say about me? Well, obviously I have a penchant for blues theology at the moment. I like the plight of the working man. I’m interested in Islam and how kids can’t stay kids for very long. I am also interested in politics. But really what they say about me is that I have varied interests and no ability to stick to one thing. I haven’t finished many of the non-fiction books, so I think that says that I don’t have much true drive for knowledge. Otherwise I could stick it out through these sometimes boring books to find some knowledge and information. Okay maybe I’m reading too much into my own collection of books. Anyway after I stared these books down a while, I picked four to stay by my bed, so that I could finish them. These ones made the cut.
Now, what do these ones say about me? Obviously that I like repetition right considering I’ve read two out of four before. And that I am still battling with my faith and the church. Anyway, I’m going to stop obsessing over my collection of books and ask about yours.
What are you reading right now? Anything interesting? Have you read any of these books? What did you think of them?
