I ordered Wounded by LoveSmiley and until it gets here, I'm reading The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo.

Thank you for reminding me.

The Yacoubian Building by Alaa Al Aswany

Middle East will never look the same again after reading this. While being a novel I think this book accomplishes in what several non-fiction books have tried to acchieve i.e. breaking the stereotypes and giving non-Western and more diversive perspective on Middle East.

Almost done with the Old Testament. It's been quite a read!

Finished The Cult of the Saints--homilies on the martyrs by St. John Chrysostom. Quite good, although a little repetative.

Over the weekend, I read Knowong God, by J.I. Packer, borrowed from my roommate. It reminded me why I could never become a Protestant.

Living without Hypocrisy: Spiritual Counsels of the Elders of Optina. A great collection of practical advice.

The Qumran scrolls: Interesting historical reading. At least to me.

Gargantua and Pantagruel by Francois Rabelais.  16th century satirical fantasy.  Wow, the Canterbury Tales have nothing on this racy, potty humor little book!  Crude and rude but it must have been pretty hilarious to some and scandalous to others when it was first published.

Carte Blanche - signed limited indies edition, the new James Bond novel by Jeffery Deaver.

I'm a huge literary Bond fan and have invested in the Fleming first editions. The new novel is basically a reboot, with a youngish Bond in his early 30s and set in the modern day. Very heavy on exposition about th web of intelligence agencies and the extent that technology is used to gather information.

Okay so far, much better than the awful "Devil May Care", but somehow lacking in thrills and the travelogue aspect of the original novels.

This is just a thread to ask what everyone is reading.  Till Wendsday I will be reading nothing other than textbooks, but after that---ooh man do I ever have a stack to get through.  As soon as I am done with my finals, I am making it top priority to finish Law of God.

Like what? Just curious.

One of the things is that he almost literally says that the worship became completely uniform after Constantine. He also refers to some of the house churches as "seating" people, when they didn't sit during worship. He also discusses how the clergy needed to be separated from the people, and so the templon developed...

He also hasn't put really any emphasis or mention on the Eucharist being the body and blood of Christ being a part of Christian worship.

Just read Balkan Ghosts: A Journey Through History by Robert Kaplan again and that got me on another Balkan history kick.  So now I'm finally ready to tackle Rebecca West's Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia.  At 1150 pages, I've got my work cut out for me.  In addition to that, I'm also reading Armenian Golgotha: A Memoir Of The Armenian Genocide, 1915 - 1918 by Fr. Grigoris Balakian.  This is a personal, first-hand account of what the author, a priest in the Armenian Apostolic Church, went through.  It's been compared to Night by Elie Wiesel (which I read last month and was amazing- I highly recommend it!).

Next month, I plan on reading:

 1. The Caucasus: An Introduction by Thomas de Waal.
 2. The Balkans: Nationaism, War, and The Great Powers, 1804 - 1999 by Misha Glenny

Finally decided to give The Sign and The Seal a try. Very interesting stuff so far, but I'm a bit turned off by some of the author's descriptions. So far he has called the Church which Haile Selassie had built to house the Ark of the Covenant "pretentious," and he has called the divine music of St. Yared "eerie". Since it's intriguing reading so far, I'm gonna keep going; but too many more of these negative and condescending remarks may cause me to abandon it altogether. We'll see how it goes.

Of course, I already know the answer to this "great mystery" anyway.  Wink

Rumspringa: To Be or Not to Be Amish by Tom Shachtman

My husband is thoroughly alarmed about how much I read about the Amish. When I was in 12th grade and working on a marriage project, my "husband" was really upset that I wanted to live in Lancaster. Ah, I should have known back then.

Helped clean out the old Greek Orthodox Church this morning, moving stuff to their new location. In the process I found four great books that I was allowed to keep:

"The Mystical Theology of The Eastern Church" by Vladimir Lossky

"The Holy Angels" by Mother Alexandra

"God's Revelation to The Human Heart" by Father Seraphim Rose

"Hymns of Divine Love" by St. Symeon the New Theologian

May be a while before I get to them, but I am a happy man!  Smiley
