Good books I’ve been reading

I learned this morning that Deeanne Gist has hit Number 10 on the list of best-selling Christian fiction with A Bride Most Begrudging, published by Bethany House. (You can read a bit about the book in my first post, listed in the sidebar.) I’m happy for her, and I’m happy for the readers who have picked up her book. I think they’ll enjoy it. I did.

Other books I’ve been reading lately:

Brennan Manning’s Ragamuffin Gospel, for the second time.

Stephen King’s On Writing, one of the most encouraging and inspiring books about writing, ever.

The Power and the Glory, a novel by Graham Greene. The story of a “whiskey priest” on the run but still gripped by his calling. It’s meaty. Slow going, but I like it.

And a pile of research books for the story I’m working on. I’ve heard that ninety percent of research doesn’t even show in the finished product, and I believe that’s true. But you have to do all the research so you know which ten percent is important.

What’s everybody else reading?
