I've caught up on my reading. In fact, I'm now ahead of where I need to be to achieve my goal of reading 12 books this year. In the past month, I've read three books: <i>Hometown Hero</i>, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1570089949/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Sarah</i></a>, and <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/076534128X/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Rebekah</i></a>. They were all quick reads. <i>Hometown Hero</i> because it was pulp. <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1570089949/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Sarah</i></a> and <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/076534128X/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Rebekah</i></a> because they were terribly engrossing.

If the women in Genesis interest you, I highly recommend <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1570089949/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Sarah</i></a> and <a href="http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/076534128X/johnnycashtri-20";><i>Rebekah</i></a>. I'm sure I'll also highly recommend <i>Rachael & Leah</i>, but it's not been released yet. Orson Scott Card really puts some meat on the matriarchs and tell the Genesis stories from their perspective. I think it was great fiction. The theology was good -- Card did take some liberties, but at least he told the reader when and where he was doing so (via the Introduction and/or Afterword). Reading those three books so quickly brings my annual book count up to seven so far.

It's good to be ahead of my goal, 'cause I just picked up <i>The Covenant</i> by Mitchner, which is something approaching a bazillion pages long. I've conquered three of those bazillion pages. I think I'm going to really enjoy this book. I chose it over all the other Mitchner books out there 'cause it was the only one that was sitting on the lend-a-book shelf at the office.
