As do all years, 2010 is coming to a close and it’s about time for me to review the past year and look forward into 2011. Here’s my planned reading list for 2011 (in no particular order):
Her Heart Can See: Life and Hymns of Fanny J. Crosby by Edith L. Blumhofer
Then Sings My Soul: 150 of the World’s Greatest Hymn Stories by Robert J. Morgan
The Promise: God Works All Things Together for Your Good by Robert J. Morgan
In addition to the three books, I was also given a Kindle – Yay! So, in 2011 I fully intend to enter the world of ebooks, diving in headlong. Here are the Kindle books that I plan to read (that I already own):
The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Luke by John MacArthur (study guide series)
Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton
Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts by Gerald Bridges
Books on the shelf:
Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus edited by Nancy GuthrieI read several of the selections this advent season and I suspect it will become a tradition.
The Reformed Pastor by Richard Baxter
The Saints’ Everlasting Rest by Richard Baxter This one I began in 2010, but only briefly.
The Bondage of the Will by Martin Luther I also read parts of The Bondage of the Will during 2010, but I want to plan to complete my first reading of this old classic in 2011.
Ministries of Mercy by Tim Keller
Simple Church by Thom Rainer and Eric Geiger
A Practical View of Christianity by William Wilberforce
I plan to go back and finish (perhaps I need to start at the beginning) Ben Hur. I read about half a few years back, and though I enjoyed it I sat it down never to return. In 2011, I plan to make my return.
Last year I wrote that I should read
Jane Eyre and this year Jo has specifically asked me to do so. I will set Jane Eyre as a priority in 2011.
