Bibliobloggers like to read

Filed under: Uncategorized — Thomas @ 11:01

Since posting my very selective list of books read in 2008 I have come across many other book lists from last year.

Trevin Wax over at Kingdom People reviewed 74 books on his blog last year and provides a list with a link for each. I think I reviewed two books last year so way to go Trevin!

Jim Drake of Brush Fork Baptist laments that he fell short of his goal of 100 books in 2008, reading ‘only’ 67. To Jim I say, include some novels in your reading. Perhaps he did but they aren’t included. I notice that most bibliobloggers only include ‘serious’ books.

Mike Aubrey includes two novels in his list which is primarily composed of works related to Greek grammar and such. He even managed to read BDAG in 2008?!!!? The whole thing? Wow! I’m impressed.

Tim Raymond makes a guest appearance on Rod Decker’s NT Resources and lists his top 11 books for the year. An interesting list and I was especially intrigued by A Hill on Which to Die which is about the SBC’s return to conservatism.

Ignatius Press offers quite a list of best books from various authors, editors, and staff. Be sure to check out part two as well. I don’t normally read Catholic books so it was interesting to see what they are reading. I was also reminded of one of my favourite books as a child, Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien.

Last but not least is Amy over at Hope is the Word. She lists her top ten reads of 2008, most of which are Christian fiction. This is certainly a genre that most bibliobloggers seem to avoid like the plague :).

  1. No, I didn’t read the whole thing…although…hmmm…

    Either way, do note that novels do appear on my list. I’m a bit fan of literature – just not kindling, uhm, I mean Christian Fiction.

  2. Hmmm, for some reason, your BDAG comment distracted me so much that I didn’t notice that you mentioned the novels… Oh dear, my attention span is failing me.
