    Aragorn: You are a daughter of kings, a shield maiden of Rohan. I do not think that will be your fate.

    and no it isn't about rogue06, although the first book in the series did have dinosaurs in it.

    Finished recently:

    Wheel of Time, Robert Jordan (finally... started this series in January)

    Mere Christianity, C. S. Lewis

    The first Mistborn trilogy, Brandon Sanderson

    Listening right now:

    Making Sense of God: an Invitation to the Skeptical, Timothy Keller

    William Lane Craig's Defenders series (not sure that counts as a book, but close enough)

    Next on the list:

    Miracles, Eric Metaxas

    Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, Eric Metaxas

    How Should We Then Live?, Francis Schaeffer

    The second Mistborn trilogy, as soon as the first book is available from the library

    I'm on the library waiting list for quite a few audiobooks, mostly fiction. Good non-fiction, especially theology, is hard to find on audiobook.

    Just checked out a bunch more books from the library on my lunch break today. Upcoming list, in probable listening order, after the ones in my previous post:

    Erasing Hell: What God Said About Eternity, and the Things We've Made Up, Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle

    The Four Loves, C.S. Lewis

    God's Not Dead, Rice Broocks

    Irreligion: A Mathematician Explains Why the Arguments For God Just Don't Add Up, John Allen Paulos

    The Complete Bible Answer Book, Hank Hanegraaf

    The Everlasting Man, G. K. Chesterton

    Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus, Nabeel Qureshi

    You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity, Francis and Lisa Chan

    The Tao Te Ching, Lao Tsu

    Refelections on the Psalms, C.S. Lewis

    Meditations, Marcus Aurelius

    My Utmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers

    Orthodoxy, G.K. Chesterton

    Prayer: The Essential Guide, Timothy Keller

    Books on hold that I've not checked out yet: (Audiobooks still have a limited number of "copies" that a library "owns" that can be checked out, and you have to wait for someone else's copy to "expire" before it becomes "available".)

    Cold-Case Christianity, J. Warner Wallace

    Updated edition of The Strong-Willed Child, Dr. James Dobson (Rational Gaze wants kids, I fully expect them to be like him.)

    A Peculiar Glory, John Piper

    The Great Divorce, C.S. Lewis

    The End of Faith, Sam Harris

    The Knowledge of the Holy, A.W. Tozer

    Why the Jews?, Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin

    Things I Wish I'd Known Before We Became Parents, Gary Chapman with Shannon Warden

    Crazy Love, Francis Chan

    Forgotten God, Francis Chan

    Then a bunch of Brandon Sanderson's books:

    The Way of Kings

    Words of Radiance

    Warbreaker

    Arcanum Unbounded: The Cosmere Collection

    The Alloy of Law

    Elantris


    Edit: I forgot the stuff on the other library card, hah

    Audiobook

    We Are Legion

    32603222._UY200_.jpg

    Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street.

    Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets. The stakes are high: no less than the first claim to entire worlds. If he declines the honor, he'll be switched off, and they'll try again with someone else. If he accepts, he becomes a prime target. There are at least three other countries trying to get their own probes launched first, and they play dirty.

    The safest place for Bob is in space, heading away from Earth at top speed. Or so he thinks. Because the universe is full of nasties, and trespassers make them mad - very mad.

    Pretty humorous book.
