Happy Friday! My weeks seem to be going by pretty fast which is nice, but that also means that the weekends are going by just as fast! I'm looking forward to a relaxing day of reading on Saturday and the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The Book Blogger Hop hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For Books is a weekly get together for book bloggers. Each week about 300 bloggers participate so you will definitely find some new blogs to follow and some great books to read.
This weeks question is: What are you reading now and why are you reading it?
I'm reading two books right now:
The Life Ready Woman by Shaunti Feldhan is for a blog tour. It's a book for Christian woman to help discover what God's purpose is for your life, how to live it out and to be ready for what life brings you. So far, I'm really enjoying it.
War Child: A Child Soldier's Story by Emmanuel Jal is his personal story of being a child soldier in Sudan. I just finished reading Romeo Dallaire's book on child soldiers so I thought it would be good to read a personal account to compliment what I read. I've read a few other personal accounts of child soldiers (Ishmael Beah's A Long Way Gone and Mariatu Kamara's The Bite of the Mango) and they are incredible stories. A great way for people in the West to understand the horrifying use of child soldiers in conflicts around the world.
