More reads from 2012

It is clear that while I am quite disciplined about writing my blog and I enjoy reading lots of books, I don’t seem to be showing any discipline about writing good reviews for this part of my web site. So, in place of reviews, here is a list of some of the books I’ve been reading recently. At least I can put in the titles and authors as a report of my reading and still have the option of including reviews from time to time.

Recently read books include:
Alice Munro, Dear Life: Stories (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2012)

John Dominic Crossen, The Power of Parables: How Fiction by Jesus became Fiction about Jesus (New York: Harper One, 2012)
