I have long enjoyed Bob Kauflin's "Reading Now" box on his Worship Matters web site. "Gotta get me one of those," I've said to myself on a few occasions.
On this, the final week of 2011, I have bit the bullet and will henceforth attempt a weekly post of the titles I am reading currently - shouldn't be too hard, right? I will refrain from annotating the list, which is the general idea of writing a full review anyhow. This weekly feature will also allow you, the reader, a peek at my bedside dresser, where my books are kept. Most of this reading will result in reviews, but the occasional volume will fall by the inevitable wayside. I usually read at least five or six books at a time, so don't be alarmed.
