The gift of books

I have been away from blogging lately. If I'm on the computer I'm consumed by Facebook or email. I'm going to try and write at least one blog a week. I put some thought into this and figured if I had the time on Monday evenings after my Bible Study group I'd try to reflect on the previous week. It's a start.

So anyways, while I was spending some time on Facebook playing one of the application games I like I needed more coins to buy some virtual "goodies". You can pay for coins with "real" money but I refuse to, so I followed one of the offers on the link. I picked a book club subscription and what a great deal! I love books and am finally starting to find the time again to read them. Of course like any of those movie clubs or book clubs you get the 5 item for 99 cents plus shipping deal and then you're required to buy up to 4 items in a year or two's time. I picked three novels, one inspirational novel by Joyce Meyer and 2 more Christian books. When my order arrived at home it was accompanied by flyers about more books.

I thought I was going to have a hard time finding more books to pick, but I've already picked three and can't wait until I get more. I'm halfway through the book Any Minute by Joyce Meyer. If you haven't read it, it's about a woman caught up in the whirlwind of trying to be the corporate mommy who has lost her way with God. Something tragic happens and changes everything.

I'm looking at it this way, it was a good thing me playing those silly games on FB. It led me to my love of books again in a strange way. I'll keep you posted on my book and the next one I'm reading.

I love books too! Is it Crossings by chance? I have been a part of that club for a long time. Although I have to limit the books I buy - I'm running out of room. So. I look there and then go to the library. I'm a huge library nut! So glad you are back to blogging I missed yoU!
