Currently reading What if Jesus Had Never Been Born? for ds's school and we're only on chapter 4, but so far it has given us so much information on history/culture before Jesus and the lack of value on humanity. It's also given us a lot of topics for discussion. I've listed it under civics as well as history. I've already told my dd I'm going to loan it to her and her husband to read it. It's been a long time since I've been this excited about a book.

The Powers of Simple Prayer by Joyce Meyer is a book I'd recommend.

unPhiltered by Phil Robertson was better than I had anticipated. I don't remember how I heard about it, but the summary sounded good and though I also don't know much about the family and had never seen the TV show, I am a book lover, so wanted to read it and form my own opinion on all the fuss. LOL
I highly recommend the book for anyone that tries to live their lives according to the Bible and appreciates someone that has turned their life around.

Just finished The Terrorist Next Door and I highly recommend it. The author footnotes his resources. A lot of the information I already knew, but the connections and betrayal regarding specific people and their terrorist connections I had NOT known.

Hi HTHOMAS,
I've read two books by Nicholas Sparks. The Notebook, which I adored. The other one I'd have to look up, but I didn't like it and never read any of his other books.

Recently finished The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen which was a cute book.

I thought I'd start a new thread on books for us parents that enjoy reading. (when we find the time?) LOL

I started a new book thinking the author was a woman, but no, it starts off with a very opinionated/narrow minded man who only loves modern literature that, as he says later, hits him over the head with their points. He is forced to read Emma in school and he finds it all trivial until he's hit over the head with his similarities to Emma. LOL Then he starts to realize how wonderfully Jane Austin wrote and that she didn't need the in your face plots, or smut, or big adventure to capture the readers. I'm not very far into this book, but the title is:

A Jane Austen Education: How six novels taught me about love, friendship, and the things that really matter. =)
