Yesterday, I mentioned/linked to Trevin Wax’s 100 book a year goal. His post encouraged me to make a more formal plan for reading for the coming year. The list below is about ten books. I figure I’ll have to read 25 or so books for classes this year also. That brings the total to 35-40. I figure I read about that in 2007, without any sort of definite plan (except, of course, for school). I think that 60-70 books this year is very possible.
Also, there are dozens of books I know I want to read, which are not on this list because (a) I can’t think of them right now (b) I don’t know about them yet. Perhaps I’ll create a “currently reading” page or widget like many folks do, so I can update this list regularly. Here’s the first draft of this list:
Bible Doctrine, Wayne Grudem. Reading through this one with a friend.
Les Miserables, Victor Hugo. Got this for Christmas awhile back, but I haven’t read it yet.
Engaging God’s World: A Christian Vision of Faith, Learning, and Living, Cornelius Plantinga. I married into this book (it was Laura’s), and I want to read it every time I see it on the shelf.
Are the Miraculous Gifts for Today?, ed. Wayne Grudem (4 views). I’ve read parts, but not all, of this book.
