[currently reading: a dilemma]

Thanks to Michelle who was the first one to share the idea of BookSneeze.com with me, I now have more sources where I get books. Before that, it was just a tiny little Globe Bookstore (amazing English language book store in Kyiv – I highly recommend them) where I bought books and whenever my boss would go to the States, I would ask him to bring me a couple of books… Yesterday I have discovered another bookstore that has English books (although Globe Bookstore is still way cooler)…

Why am I talking about that?

Because I now face a very serious dilemma.

I am not sure which book to read… or, rather, in what order πŸ™‚

The thing is… as of now, I am reading several books at the same time (well, not LITERALLY at the same time, but I mean, I have not finished the previous one but already started a new one)… So I decided to write down a list of books that I have started reading:

John Grisham’s Chamber – got this book as a gift for my birthday from the Chamber… Thankfully, the Chamber where I work is not the same Chamber that Grisham’s talking about.

C.S. Lewis’ Out of Silent Planet – have it only in electronic version on my computer… Need to get it into my iPod so I can actually finish reading it.

Dan Brown’s Lost Symbol – this book was a present from my friends who know that I like Dan Brown’s writing… I think that this will be the book that I will finish the first.

Cornelia Funke’s Inkspell – a sequel to Inkheart which I have finished a year ago. I have the final book of the trilogy too, the Inkdeath, so I really want to finish Inkspell sometime soon so that I can finish the series.

John MacArthur’s Jesus You Can’t Ignore – this book has been VERY slow-going, mostly because I disagree with the author almost all the time, so I end up arguing with him mentally instead of reading the book… But I will finish it.

Stephen Lawhead’s Skin Map – could not resist the temptation to read a few pages because that was the book I’ve got today from BookSneeze.com. It’s gonna be another fast page-turner, I just know it. As well as I know that Lawhead might possibly become one of my favorite authors.

I think that is the complete list of all the books that I am currently reading… I might have a few I forgot about…

Unread books:

Dean Koontz’ Husband – ooooh, Koontz’ books are the biggest temptation of all. I got two of his books just yesterday, but I want to try not to start them before I finish all the books that I have already started reading. That’s gonna be really tough.

Dean Koontz’ Taking – another Koontz’ book waiting for its turn.

Cornelia Funke’s Inkdeath – the final book of the Ink trilogy.

John Grisham’s Associate – one more book from the Chamber.

Soon to be mine:

Ted Dekker’s Immanuel’s Veins – oh, once I will get this book in my hands, all other books will have to wait their time. I am reading this book as soon as possible.

  • Ok, I just finished reading both The Lost Symbol *and* The Skin Map. I wrote a review of The Skin Map for Booksneeze (by the way, it was your blog that pointed me over to them, thanks!).

    If I had to vote between just those two, I would vote for The Skin Map. Both were good books, but I found Lost Symbol to be a little draining … from a Christian standpoint. I don't want to give you any spoilers.

    Also – there are several other publishers that have free books for bloggers programs if you're interested.
    My recent post The church is not a building

    • Yeah, I know why Dan can be draining from a Christian standpoint (i've read all his books), but at the same time I realized (after reading the Da Vinci Code as well as Angels and Demons) that when I read something like that, it challenges me to reassess what I believe and become stronger in apologetics, being able to explain what I believe in to other later.

      The thing about other publishers – I will need to check out whether they would deliver books to Ukraine…

  • I am signed up for Nav Press, Book Sneeze, and Tyndale. It's crazy. I have too many books! You have more though. I just stopped asking for them until I really wanted to read it. UGH. but I do love getting new books πŸ™‚
    My recent post When I grow up

    • πŸ˜€ hehe, you're nuts… I will check out Nav Press and Tyndale – who knows, maybe they do ship over here…

      i am a book addict, so i NEEEEEEEED to have books… sometimes, when I have time to just to stay in my bed a bit longer, i love looking at my bookshelves, counting how many Koontz' books I have and those of Dekker… ahh… I guess I am nuts, too
