Reading This Week

Happy New Year! And yes, it is a new year. According to the church calendar, the first Sunday of Advent begins a new year, and having marked the church year for some time now, I do feel like the first day of Advent brings a sense of newness much like the world's New Years Eve/Day. I also feel an incredible amount of exciting expectation that comes with a new year, but that probably has a LOT to do with the expectation that comes with Advent -- preparing for the coming of Christ. This is my very favorite time of the year for so many reasons! Top of the list is the colder days when I just want to wrap up in a blanket and read a good book. If my habits are well formed and practiced, then I will do just that. My vice is plopping down and watching the same Christmas movie for the upteenth time. I'm working on improving the reading habit this year, so here is what I have at my side this week:

The Man Who Was Thursday by C.K. Chesterton

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy

Strong Poison by Dorothy Sayers

Amusing Ourselves to Death by Neil Postman

The Medieval Mind of C.S. Lewis by Jason Baxter

Begin Here by Jacques Barzun

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte

For Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, I'm reading Malcolm Guite's Waiting on the Word which is a poem with a reflection for each day of the season.
