Just finished a book on my Kindle (I always try to start the new year with a new book!)

I got a book for Christmas from a friend of mine in paperback, so I'm going to start on that in January...just can't remember the name of it right at this moment!

Born run by Christopher McDogall

Phillipians 4 8-9: Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy-- think about such things. Whatever you have learned or recieved or heard from me, or seen in me-- put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.

Jesus is the first SPARK ignitor in my life and SP has been a wonderful example how to be a better steward of the body Jesus gave

Just started one I won from Library Thing; Cleft Heart: Chasing Normal by Karl Schonborn.
It's a memoir about growing up in the 50's while dealing with a cleft palate, a heart defect, and being bullied for being "different".

Reading one more Christmas book.

Tin Angel by Raine English; it's about a lonely 90 year old woman who lost her true love 60 years ago. She is granted her wish to be young again when the angel on her Christmas tree comes to life.

I am working through "NIght Film" and it is quite engaging - FYI - i read in reviews that it didn't work well on E-readers due to the interactive text, but so far I haven't had any problems

BERRY, I loved that book!

Now I am reading A Patchwork Christmas by Judith McCoy, Nancy Moser and Stephanie Grace Whitson; a collection of short stories set in the late 1800's.

Hey VEGIBIKER - Is it Icarus Principle or Icarus Deception? Are there two Icarus books? Have you read anything else by Godin? His books sound intriguing!

An Amish Christmas: December in Lancaster County by Barbara Cameron, Beth Wiseman, and Kathleen Fuller.

It's a collection of short stories, even though they are written by different authors, they are all tied together by taking place in the same community, and some of the same characters in each story.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!
