I was looking around my blog hoping to see what I did the last two years for our wedding anniversary. I guess we didn't do anything too exciting because I never wrote about it, we just always thought we would do something big on our 10th. OOPS

But when looking around I did find an old post about a contest I did in August 2008. I asked you all for a good read. I actually read a few books that were suggested and amazingly had 12 comments. That has to be a record for my blog.

Sooooo that got me thinking. It must be time for another contest. I am always looking for new books or new authors. So starting now and ending Sunday, July 25th I would like your favorites, something on your list to read, or a book you have heard a lot about lately. I will then randomly choose 1 winner of a $10.00 STARBUCKS gift card. You, anyone reading this, not just my friends or family, can comment as many times as you want but only 1 post will count.

I have to say that I am really liking James Patterson. I recently read Sam's Letters to Jennifer and fell in love with him. If you want something a little more intence try 19 Minutes by Jodi Picoult.

P.S. If you have not signed up for you have to. You would love it!
I can't wait to read all of the comments and get book ideas too!

I really liked The Help, The Forgotten Beasts of Eld, The Girl with the Drag Tattoo, and The Passion! :)

I love reading and these are some of the books I've recently read and enjoyed!

Here's my suggestion:

Every Woman's Battle

And here's my list of books sitting there waiting for me to read:

Safely Home by Randy Alcorn
The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
The Love Languages of God by Gary Chapman

This is nonfiction, but it's one that I think everyone needs to read, "Gospel Primer" by Milton Vincent. Another good nonfiction is "Dug Down Deep" by Josh Harris and "Gospel Powered Parenting" by William Farely. A nonfiction, medical documentary one that I am in the middle of and finding fascinating is, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. :)

This is from my Mother-In-Law, Martha, who doesn't know computers well.

She says,
"Safely Home" by Randy Alcorn

I just have to second some of these! I loved Safely Home! and Sarah's parenting books are excellent! Love them! This is fun to hear everyone's suggestions!

If you haven't read The Help, it's great. Right now I'm reading Hotel on the corner of Bitter and Sweet it took me a some time to get into it, but i'm half way through and can't put it down now. And, I haven't read it but a friend said The seven miracles that saved America is good.
