Did you get any new books for Christmas that the rest of us will be salivating until you read and post them?  How about sharing the list!  Tell us what books you got for Christmas.

I am bummed I didn't get a single book...not a stinkin' single book!   I think my family thinks I have too many :)  I was hoping to start collecting the Yada Yada Prayer Group books...I have a birthday & Mother's Day coming oh & Valentine's Day coming up so maybe there is hope!

My mom got me Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner. I've already finished it but I have a feeling it's going to stay on my keeper shelf. But you absolutely do want to read it. It's incredible.

My wife and I have no children, so we get to spoil each other at Christmas.  I am almost embarrassed to post the list of books that I got for Christmas.  Needless to say, I had to remove a LOT of titles from my wish list.


Merciless by Robin Parrish

Shade by John B. Olson

Dragons In Our Midst series by Bryan Davis (4 books)

The Unseen by T.L. Hines

Walking With God by John Eldredge

Deeper Water by Robert Whitlow

Vanished by Kathryn Mackel

Sinner by Ted Dekker

Less Than Dead by Tim Downs


If you think that I received a big list of books, you should see the box my wife got!  I ordered hers from Christianbook.com and paid no shipping because my order was over $100.  Also, I found a 25% online coupon and used that.  I did the same thing for her last year at Christmas, and it took her almost the whole year to read the box full!

Thanks, Chris, for the heads up in the online discount coupons. I recently made an order at CBD and WISHED for a discount!!  I'll remember this for future use.
