66 Love Letters

I've been reading a book called "66 love letters" by Dr. Larry Crabb. Each chapter is about the love letter of each book of the Bible.

It's slow going because I end up going back to my Bible to read the book the chapter is on, which is a good thing. Any author that leds me back to my Bible is in my option an author worth reading. :)

I'm on to the Psalms and looking forward to what he says about Ecclesiastics, since I just finished a bible study on it.

Angela's Ashes

I'm almost finished reading Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt. Once I got past all the cursing and swearing in this book, I have to say I'm really enjoying it. It's witty and funny and sad and heartwarming. It's given me a better understanding of the poor...the really poor, the one piece of bread a day poor.

Well I just finished the book and have to say the last few chapters were disappointing with a little to much information about his young sex life and his resorting to steal to get enough money to get to America.

I wonder if he ever came back to Ireland to pay back all those he stole from? :(
