Isn't there a signature somewhere here on DC that's something like, how little we know. Isn't that the truth? Educating ourselves, reading broadly can only do us good.

I've got 2 going at the time. I'm reading Bonhoffer by Eric Metaxas. It's interesting reading about his family history and upbringing. It's just now getting to his interest in theology. I'm also reading The Two Crosses by Ernie Lindsey about two men empowered with healing people.

I'm on chapter 8 of Motor Mouth by Janet Evanovich. Loving it! It such a light and funny read.

I've read that :) It's cute. I'm on a Janet Evanovich mission at the moment. I need some laughs!

I read an interview with her once. The interviewer commented that all of her characters were believable except the grandmother. Evanovich replied that all the characters were products of her imagiination .. except the grandmother, who is actually her aunt, a real person.

' No great Mischief ' by Alistair MacLeod. A wonderful story of a Scottish family of immigrants to Cape Breton from 1779 until the present.

I didn't know that. The grandmother in the Stephanie Plum series was my favourite character! I could just imagine a crazy old lady with flame red hair that wants to shoot everyone

Although it's impossible to ever know the number, no doubt many a reader will read your post, say "Oooo. That sounds good," and grab up a pencil to add this selection to their list of future reads, as I will.
