  1. I have bought the book and perused it. I think you made a good choice.

  2. I haven’t been able to buy it yet, but it is at the top of my Amazon wishlist.

  3. (Note some of these books may not have been published this year, but this year is when I read them)
    Some of my books of the year:

    Best Christian book- Though, not a Calvinist myself and though I find him a strange duck at times, I have always seen this man’s great passion for making Jesus and God glorified. I really enjoyed this book of meditations/devotionals this year.

    Taste and See: Savoring the Supremacy of God in All of Life by John Piper

    Best Non-Fiction Book- I picked this one up at BAM! in Rapid City, before I returned to Mississippi. It was one of those kind of reads that just sucked you in. If you want to hear great tales of happenings on and around the Mississippi River before and during the age of steamboats I recommend this. It was engaging and there was no story that was not a ” I got go tell someone about this” kind of story.

    Wicked River: The Mississippi When It Last Ran Wild by Lee Sandlin

    Best Fiction Book- I picked this one up for Kindle last Christmas, but didn’t read it till about April this year. It is a collection of short stories. I have always loved anthologies of short stories. A short story is a far different creature than a novel. It has to grab you and leave going “Wow!” to make an impression. A good many of the stories in this book did just that.
    If you don’t like the idea of steampunk, these may not be be for you, but I found the stories to stand on their own merit as just good writing.

    Coming up on my own personal “end time” on this planet.

    Will I be increasingly in control of my life (dominionism)?

    Rescued into heaven from a difficult situation (pre-trib)?

    Or just enjoying more of the kingdom every day (amil)?

    Derek…. I love short stories too… I will check that one out. Thanks. Do you ever read Fantasy and Science Fiction Journal? I used to only get print copies because of the price (8$ per issue) But I found it for Kindle and it is only .99$ a month ($2 per issue) It makes it really affordable and it has an assortment of novellas (sometimes), short stories, poetry and other shorts, some great articles and toons too. 🙂

    For the Kindle price, this would be difficult to pass up. If I owned a Kindle/Tablet.

    My reading plan is based on the assumption of getting this for Christmas:

    I have never seen these priced so low.

    Papais, I use a Kindle app on my phone and computer. It is free to download, and free for the Amazon account. They also have free books, and really great deals. I also borrow both Kindle books and regular e-books from my local public library. This is the best thing ever, for me. I borrow e-books and audio all the time. Love Love Love!

  8. I like that one a lot, gg.
    Put it in the Amazon wish list and keep an eye on it. It went down last year at this time, chances are it may this year to.
