Read any good books lately?

I'm working on my Christmas wish list for Dave's family and am wondering if any of you have any good books you would recommend - fiction, non-fiction, cookbooks, etc. - anything interesting, really.

I'm glad you're blogging. It seems that is the best way for me to keep up with people. I'm not much of an initiator either!

Christian Fiction:
One of my favorites is Stephen Lawhead. My favorite trilogy was The Song of Albion.

Anything by Beverly Lewis - Amish books. Quick reads.

Tedd Dekker is a great newer author out there. His books are 'different'. Very intriguing. "Three" was actually scary to me.

James Scott Bell has been compared to John Grishim. I read "No Legal Grounds" and really enjoyed it.

A just read a regular book called "The Color of Water". It's a true story. A black man's tribute to his while mother. Very good!

I've also read a bunch of books by authors from the Church of Later Day Saints. They aren't faith based at all. Just clean books. Since I try to only read Christian authors when I run out of books I usually turn to them.

"Ella Minow Pea" was a fun read. "The Goose Girl" was a good one. Right now I'm reading a vampire book called "Twilight". It's written very well. Nothing about God in it. But, it's very clean.

That's all I've got for now :)

Check out "The Bread Baker's Apprentice" for how-to's on making all kinds of bread. Lots of photos! Good explanations.
