2011 was a book year for me.

I don't know if I just had more time to read or just more desire to investigate issues in an in-depth way . Sometimes one book on a particular subject leads to an increased interest in that subject and even more reading about it as a result.

I may try reviewing some of my favorites as I get a chance. It will be fun for me to revisit some of these marvelous books as I try to remember (!) all that struck me and what I gained from their pages.

Books enjoyed in 2011: (in no particular order)

"The Island of the World" Michael D. O'brien

"Father Elijah" Michael D. O'Brien

"One Thousand Gifts" Ann Voskamp

"The Secret Knowledge": on the Dismantling of American Culture - David Mamet

"Jihad in the West: Muslim conquests from the 7th to the 21st Centuries" Paul Fregosi

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

"The Road to Serfdom" F.A.Hayak

"Out of the Silent Planet" C.S. Lewis

"Perelandra" C.S.Lewis

has always been beating all others. A woman can actually fall in love with theseAbercrombie and Fitch Clothing. Every time, this brand comes up with
Asics Tiger new range and collection of outfits, women rush to get their hands on their

most loved one.
