1. True Detective by Max Allan Collins
"In the mob-choked Chicago of 1932, private detective Nathan Heller may be willing to risk his life to earn a Depression dollar, but he never sacrifices his slicing wit." I've been a fan of Collins' work for years. Just got the first Nathan Heller book on my Kindle.
2. The Orthodox Heretic by Peter Rollins
I recently met Rollins and heard him speak. Fascinating speaker. I'm looking forward to reading his works.
3. bird by bird by Anne Lamott
Love me some Anne Lamott! If I'm really going to attempt writing for real, then this is a must read.
4. Spiritual Disciplines Handbook by Adele Ahlberg Calhoun
I'm always on the lookout for ways to improve my spiritual walk. This book was recommended to me earlier in the summer. I hope to get around to it soon!
5. The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson
While I'm familiar with the killing spree of Dr. H. H. Holmes, I'm not as familiar with 1893 World's Fair held in Chicago. I'm always up for a murder and mayhem when it's mixed with history, so this one's on my list.
6. Getting the Pretty Back by Molly Ringwald
Okay, there is no excuse for this being on my to read list, except that I bought it on a whim. I am too old to have been part of "Molly Ringwald" moviedom, but I read ONE review that said it was good and bought it. Besides after I read the others on this list, I gonna need some fluff!
So there you go, the next 6 books on my reading list. (Yeah, likes this is ever gonna happen!)
