Book List for 2016, Episode One

As promised, I am posting a list of the books which I have determined to finish reading in 2016. Of course, these represent only a minuscule portion of the books on my shelves.  For various reasons, these books have made their way onto my reading book stand.  Some have been there a while.  Others have moved in to the house in the past month.  It's time to read these!

As you can easily see, I have very diverse reading interests.  My plan is to choose one book and just read it through and FINISH it.  Currently I am reading Keep It Simple, Keep It Whole, Alona Pulde & Matthew Lederman and am nearly finished with it.  I think my next book will have to be Mini Farming, Brett L. Markham mainly because it is a LIBRARY BOOK and I have had it checked out over and over and over way too many times.

Gardening books:
5 Acres and a Dream, Leigh Tate
Mini Farming, Brett L. Markham LIBRARY BOOK

Gifted Hands, Ben Carson
Education of a Wandering Man, Louis L’Amour
Vet in Harness, James Herriot (British edition)   borrowed from neighbor

The Life of St. Francis of Assisi, Saint Bonaventure

Christian History and Encouragement
Turning Points, Mark A. Noll
What I Wish My Christian Friends Knew about Judaism, Robert Schoen   borrowed from friend
