In keeping with my goals for 2008, I completed reading the following for the month of January(If I read 4 books a month, then I’ve exceeded my goal of 40 books a year):

The Lady and the Cad by Tamela Hancock Murray – A Heartsong Presents Christian Romance. I chose this book because the hero’s name is Cecil and that’s my Daddy’s name. Actually, I chose it because I would like to target the Heartsong line for my Christian Romances and it’s a regency historical and that is what I’m working on now. I enjoyed this story–one of a sinner redeemed.

Leviticus – I decided to include the books of the Bible I complete as well. I’m reading from the Archaeological Study Bible that I received this year for Christmas. If you’re interested in what the Bible says about Tatoos, incest and what to eat read this book of laws. See my post Life is Like a Box of Chocolate Insects.

Numbers – Interesting things happened in this account of the Israelites as they wandered in the wilderness. The Israelites were counted. Spies reported. A donkey talked (and this was before Shrek). The Israelites grumbled. A hired gun couldn’t curse them.

Numbers 23:8 (King James Version)

8How shall I curse, whom God hath not cursed? or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?

Numbers 23:22 (King James Version)

22God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.

Numbers 24:17 (King James Version)

17I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
I think this might be my favorite:

Numbers 23:26 (King James Version)

26But Balaam answered and said unto Balak, Told not I thee, saying, All that the LORD speaketh, that I must do?

Elephants Can Remember by Agatha Christie – see my post The Agatha Christie Code.

I’m working through Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook with my writing group at the Summit Church in Durham, NC.
