Josh & Puddles' Book Club...

I've always loved to read.

And, whenever I find a book that captures my imagination or satisfies some curiosity that I may have, I have to tell people about it.

For some time now, I've included a section on my blog (located on the sidebar) where I show what book I'm currently reading (the topmost) as well as the next few books in line. However, as I've stated before, I'm great at starting books, but terrible at finishing them.

And so, as a way of fostering some (hopefully) interesting conversations, as well as encouraging some literary accountability in my life, I'm partnering with Puddles in launching the Josh & Puddles' Book Club.

Puddles and I will be tackling books of our choice and, as we discuss and dissect their contents, posting our thoughts on them. Or at least I will.

Our first two books (which Puddles just ordered from amazon) are two that I recently started: Kitchen Confidential and Gilead. You're welcome to join us, if you'd like...

Editor's Note: And, wouldn't you know it, just before I wrote this post, I found another book that I'm going to try and start: When God Waits: Making Sense of Divine Delays by Jerome Daley. It seemed like it might apply to where I feel like I'm at right now...

Gilead has been on my shelf for months. If I make it through my school books I may have to join your discussions. If not, let me know how you like it.
Thanks for the music rec. I loved it!

I have trouble even starting books. I'm just not into reading. I'm going to work on it though. I'll pass on these but maybe the next book.
