What I’m Reading – Shawna R. B. Atteberry
Aug 262008
 

I have a habit of reading seven or eight books at the same time. I really try to just read one fiction and one nonfiction at a time, but that never happens. It starts with two books, and before I know I’ve got a stack I’m reading. Here’s what I’m reading now.

Non-fiction

10 Lies the Church Tells Women J. Lee Grady

Jesus as Mother: Studies in the Spirituality of the High Middle Ages (Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, UCLA) by Caroline Walker Bynum

Reading the Women of the Bible: A New Interpretation of Their Stories by Tikva Frymer-Kensky

The Answer: Grow Any Business, Achieve Financial Freedom, and Live an Extraordinary Life by John Assaraf and Murray Smith

Home Comforts: The Art and Science of Keeping House by Cheryl Mendelson

Fiction

The Enchantress of Florence: A Novel by Salman Rushdie

In a Glass Darkly (Oxford World’s Classics) by Sheridan Le Fanu

Quite the collection, huh? What are reading?

  1. I LOVE Tikva Frymer-Kensky’s work. Enjoy. She came to one of my classes years ago as a guest lecturer–she was fabulous.

    I am reading…Wuthering Heights. I also have the habit of reading several books at once, but I believe that’s the only one right now. But I completely interrupted reading Wuthering Heights to re-read all the Chronicles of Narnia books, and re-started it once I finished those!

  2. Thanks for sharing. Yes I am Tikva’s book up. I love it! I am going to have to get it along with the first one she wrote.

    I’ve read and have Wuthering Heights, but it annoys me more than anything. I always want to shake the snot out of Catherine and Heathcliff and tell them to grow up.
