You know Martie, usually when I look over other folks "to read" lists I can pick out one or two that look good to me. But I think every single one of your choices looks wonderful. I have been wanting to read The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life for the longest time. Maybe this year I'll join you in it. Hey... maybe you should hostess a bloggity-book-club sort of thing where some of us gals read a chapter a week or so and discuss it! (Don't you just love it when other folks come up with "great ideas" for you to do? hehehe ;))

Blessings to you today♥

Persuaded,
You know that does not sound like a bad idea. Any other takers? Perhaps we start in a few weeks.

I love books! I've read E.M. Bounds book on Prayer and it is wonderful! Also, The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life. These are well worth re-reading again. Your list looks great!

I've read The Christian's Secret to a Happy Life and loved it! We also have E.M. Bounds' book on prayer. I've read Dr. Rice's book on prayer, but I'm not sure we have it anymore. I'd love to read Elisabeth Elliot's books, too!

I would enjoy a "book club" type of thing if you do it. I'd love to discuss books like these!

Ooooh, now I'm excited! For the last several years I have tended not to read books for myself and I so miss it. Our ladies Sunday school class at church filled the void until I started teaching the primary class... now no Sunday school for me:( Having the structure of a few other ladies to read and discuss with would be just the thing I need. Let me know when you want to start etc. I'll have to see about locating and borrowing the books as I am trying not to buy anything this year.

Yay!
