Still More New Books

PERSONAL NOTE: I don't know why I didn't ask you guys to pray sooner. My son was accepted into an entry-level training program after his interview on Monday. Basically, he'll be paid for a month-long intense immersion into two computer programming systems, and at the end of that period be put to work for the company, somewhere in the tri-state area, provided the company has need for new programmers around Valentine's Day. It's not a guarantee of employment, but it is the next best thing. Don't let anyone tell you prayer doesn't work!


So yesterday I ran a post on spending too much time online.

Let's balance it out and talk about real life, hold-in-your-hand, turn them one-page-at-a-time books.

Reader's Digest has an article on ways to work more books into your life this year.

Maybe soon they can write an article that tells you how to find time to actually read them.



"Come On In!" by Doris Ohpen.

"The German Bank Robbery" by Hans Zupp.

"I Hate the Sun" by Gladys Knight.

"Prison Security" by Barb Dwyer.

"My Career as a Clown" by Abe Ozo.

"Why I No Longer Eat Fast Food" by Tommy Ayk.

"Take This Job and Shove It" by Ike Witt.

"The Secret of Rapunzel" by Harris Long.

"Split Personalities" by Jacqueline Hyde.

"How I Won the Marathon" by Randy Holeway.

"Waging Nuclear War" by Adam Baum.

"So You're Engaged" by Bess Twishes

"How to Survive a Riot" by Donny Brooke.

WONDER for YOUR WEEK: When someone finally wrote the first book about watch-making, did everyone think it was about time?
