RevGals Friday Five: Books, Books, Books – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Jun 152007

I’ve just returned from a meeting in Cambridge so I’m posting this late here in the UK (it is 3:45pm).. because I took the opportunity of a free afternoon in Cambridge’s wonderful book shops… I only bought a few- and they were on sale- very restrained for me!!!

So with my head full of books I’ve seen and a long wish list in my mind, I bring you a Friday Five on books!!!

1. Fiction what kind, detective novels, historical stuff, thrillers, romance????

Urban fantasy, mystery, thriller, classical fiction, fantasy, and historical

2. When you get a really good book do you read it all in one chunk or savour it slowly?

I devour books.

3. Is there a book you keep returning to and why?

Several: Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House books, Little Women, The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, A Wrinkle in Time series, Neverwhere, and Sunshine.

4. Apart from the Bible which non-fiction book has influenced you the most?

Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s The Cost of Discipleship

5. Describe a perfect place to read. ( could be anywhere!!!)

Bed. Or sitting by the lake.

Did you know there are only eight verses in the Bible that discourage women from speaking and holding leadership positions in the church? Did you know there are thousands of verses in the Bible that tell the stories of women who were leaders in their homes, towns, and religious circles? Meet the women in the Bible who were religious & civic leaders, business women, & women who challenged both Jesus and Moses in What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School. What else didn’t you learn in Sunday School? Find out when you buy What You Didn’t Learn in Sunday School: Women Who Didn’t Shut Up & Sit Down from Wipf and Stock Publishers or Amazon.com today.

  1. Is that your bookshelf? 🙂

  2. 1. The only fiction I’ve read in the past, I don’t know, five years, is by Fyodor Dostoevsky, Flannery O’Connor, and classical Greek plays. I read those kinds of fictions.

    2. Depends on the writing style of the book. Lots of the books (maybe even most of the books!) that I love are slow-going and terribly written.

    3. Fear and Trembling by Soren Kierkegaard and The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky because they are completely misunderstood by most readers and because I think they are both so wrong (in such interesting ways!) and I’m trying to make clear to myself just why I think they’re wrong. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to stop reading them.

    4. Friedrich Nietzsche’s The Genealogy of Morals

    5. On the porch with a cool breeze, a beer, a cigarette, my fat cat, with Mahler playing in the background.

  3. Kievas, no that’s not one of the seven bookshelves in our place. 🙂 But it might as well be. When bookaholics marry: it’s not pretty.

    Matt I love Flannery O’Conner too. She’s part of my classical fiction set I love. I still need to read The Brothers Karamazov. So many books, so little time.

  4. Had to check out someone who calls herself a “bookoholic.” (biblioholic?) And who loves Little House, and Little Women. When I was in college (and already collecting) my dad once said, “Think of all the money you’d have if you didn’t have all these books.”

    There is that. Oh well, I love them, everything about them.

  5. Bonhoffer is amazing- great play!

    On the subject of bookaholics one of my sons friends dropped by the other day, walked into my office and stood open mouthed- he’d never seen so many books in a house before!
