Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you were blessed by being able to celebrate according to the true meaning of the day.
“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalm 136:1
Today we’re talking about books. One of the things I’m thankful for is great books…for this post, I picked five 2015 reads that I’m thankful for. (Around the last post of the year I’ll have a top fifteen most impacting books list! This is something different.)
1. The Secret Gift by Ted Gupp. This book was an answer to an unspoken prayer. It relates a real-life Great Depression story that takes place in Canton, Ohio, the setting of my Great Depression novel. It was an invaluable resource. I found it by “accident” when I was researching 1930s Canton.
2. The Scent of Water by Elizabeth Goudge. This was my first introduction to an incredible author who God uses to refresh my spirit.
3. The Dean’s Watch by Elizabeth Goudge. My second Goudge novel. Same reason as above!
4. Amazing Grace by Faith Blum. I had the privilege of proofreading this touching and entertaining book.
5. A Commentary on the Jewish Roots of Romans by Joseph Shulam. This was enjoyably elucidating to my study of the Bible.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to another great year of reading! Speaking of more reading, here’s one more thing to be grateful for: books on sale!
