This week, the Baird family are all in La Jolla (pronounced la hoya, as in oscar de la hoya, no matter what the gps system on my rental car says). In addition to toting along an entire collection of baby parapranalia; pack and plays, bottles, strollers, baby backpacks, and formula, I have strapped in about 6 books that I am trying to be through, before we return on Wednesday.
Whenever I get a chance, I like to know what people are currently reading. The answer to this question gives me a sense about what people are thinking, who they are currently being influenced by, or if they are thinking at all. This is my thanksgiving reading list for 2012:
"The Generals; American Military Command from World War II to Today", by Thomas E Ricks. Living in Colorado Springs, I thought I might learn something about leadership from the likes of Omar Bradley and Stormin Norman Schwartzkoff.
"The Book of Job; When Bad Things Happen to A Good Person" by rabbi Harold Kushner.
"Every Good Endeavor; Connecting Your Work to Gods Work", by Timothy Keller
"Life, God and Other Small Topics" by Eic Metaxas
"Midnight in Peking" Paul French. Hey, all work and no play makes a pastor a dull boy....
"The Book of Books; The Radical Impact of The King James Bible", by Melvyn Bragg.
I think that about does it. Oh yeah, I've been reading one more book quite extensively, "Barbar Goes On Vacation," Haley's new favorite tome....
See you when I return, unless I find another book shop in La Jolla and buy some more books....
All For Now,
