LInkup with Three Ws

So, I'm taking a break from the #My500words challenge because those prompts require thinking and I've thought too much today.
I'll still write 500 words, but I'm going to do a link-up and talk about something that I can easily write 500 words about without thinking- books! 
I saw this link-up and thought this would be something fun to do on Wednesdays around here because I know so many who enjoy to read and even though we rarely have time, we're all looking for good books, so...

 (Graphic borrowed from Taking on a World of Words, where I'm linking up).
On WWW, folks around her site answer three questions:
What are you currently reading?
So if you're around this blog at all, you know I read a lot of books at once. I wouldn't say I actively read them all, because a lot of paperback/hardback I'll start and then get distracted and then come back to... so, if you look at my Goodreads profile, it says I'm reading 28 books... but what I'm actually reading right now is:
Daily Guideposts 2018, because I like a daily devotional
My Chronological Bible, a little bit a day
66 Ways God Loves You: Experience God's Love for You in Every Book of the Bible  by Jennifer Rothschild... reading this along with my Chronological Bible, so I'm just on Genesis because that's where I'm reading in the Bible
The Rejected Writer's Book Club by Suzanne Kelman- fabulous, no-thinking read about a group of ladies who write and celebrate rejection
The Ice Princess- a thriller with a dark turn- has some language- but had me captivated early on in the reading
Hello Mornings by Kat Lee- because I desperately need a morning routine and I am not a morning person, and while most days I don't want to be, I'm going to have to learn to be to be fruitful this year.
The Kindness Challenge by Shaunti Feldhahn, because kindness is one of the fruits of the Spirit.
Daughter of the Legend by Kentucky author Jesse Stuart
Stronger by Jeff Bauman because I want to see the movie and we all know you have to read the book first
Key Lime Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke because I love these murder mysteries, and I love Hannah, and I can read them without contemplating anything serious, which is great for days like today when I don't have a brain
Sacred Space- this is a book to be read during Advent but it has some bonus reading so I'm still soaking it up. After all, shouldn't Advent be year round?
The Lombardi Rules because everything you need to know about life can be summed up by a quote from one of the greatest football coaches of all times.
10,000 Reasons by Matt Redman because the song is powerful. This book tells examples of how real-life people have related to the lyrics.
The Matchmaker by Elin Hilderbrand- some sexual content and language but she's one of my favorites and also her books make me think of summertime which I desperately need
Nathan Coulter by Kentuckian Wendell Barry because reading his work in on a Kentucky Bucket List and y'all know I'm all about Exploring Kentucky.
Harry Potter and the Half-blood Prince because, hello, it's Harry Potter and I still haven't finished the series.
Walt Whitman and Ralph Waldo Emerson because they are classics. I'll be reading these all year, I'm pretty sure.
The Philadelphia Chromosome about CML and cancer treatment- interesting read.
Church of the Small Things study guide because Melanie Shankle is basically me, with best-selling books and awesome hair.
All in All Journaling Devotional because Sophie Hudson is just as awesome as Melanie Shankle.
Chazown: Discover and Pursue God's Purpose for Your Life by Craig Groeschel

 What did you recently finish reading?
Operation Christmas Child: A Story of Simple Gifts by Franklin Graham. I loved this book because I love this program. This book gave real-life stories of recipients of shoeboxes and also talked about how the ministry had grown.
God is in the Manger: Reflections on Advent and Christmas by Dietrich Bonhoeffer- this book took letters and sermons from Bonhoeffer and pulled out Scriptural references for the days leading up to and following Christmas.
A Christmas Flower by Bryan Mooney- nice read about a doctor trying to save a small-town hospital and learning to love.
 What do you think you’ll read next?
I Am Loved by Wendy Blight for P31 OBS
In Bloom by Kaylee Aimee because I'm on the launch team
Beartown for a book challenge

and I also have too many books downloaded on my Kindle, especially for the beginning of the semester... so, happy reading!
