After talking about my Nook in a recent post some readers wanted to be kept updated on what I’m reading.  In terms of "real" books I’ve been reading.

N.T. Wright’s book Surprised by Hope.  I’m about half way through and I like how the book is challenging my thoughts about topics related to heaven and the end times.  Fortunately, I’ve never bought into the idea of people being ‘left behind’ so his thoughts on the subject didn’t hurt my feelings.

Dave Ramsey’s book EntreLeadership.  Wow!  I really, really liked this book.  The book is entertaining and I think it really helps Christian business people learn how to created a unique business culture.  It’s geared towards entrepreneurs and not corporate suits. 

I was included in the following carnivals this month:

      YFS,
      I enjoy a lot of the Oblivious Investors stuff (even if I don’t always agree). Let me know what you think of EntreLeadership if you have a chance to read it.

      Tony,
      I don’t agree with everything either (not that I have found a book that I do). However, like you I think there is a lot of very practical information for small business owners.
