I am parking a temporary link here for the library of First Congregational Church of Bellingham as an experiment to assist with creating the library page on the church's website. If you've discovered it, feel free to browse the church library.

Some of the Books I Have Read

I used to have a web page devoted to the books I have read. I would write short reviews of the books and publish pictures of the covers. While I love reading, I've never been good at the discipline of writing book reports. As a result the page was perpetually behind my reading.

In place of that blog, I offer this list. It is alphabetized by author's last name. I will add books from time to time. It is not complete, but here are some of the books I have read in recent years.
