I've already mentioned that I'm in the midst of reading John Eldredge's Wild at Heart. I read several reviews of the book before I start reading it, and I have to say that much of what the reviewers said was on point. I'll finish the book before I give it a final judgment, though.
I'm also reading Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, now in paperbook form. If you haven't heard of the book (it's a #1 New York Times bestseller), it focuses on Abraham Lincoln and the men who helped him guide the country - the North, anyway - during the Civil War. This is the second time I have purchased the book. I bought it shortly after it was published, started reading it, took it on vacation, and lost it. I'm very excited to now have this book again, and I plan to keep a good watch on it.
I have to say, I love it whenever D.K. Goodwin comes on the TV screen. I know she's had issues with plagiarism in her past works, but that hasn't stopped me from reading what she's written. I don't know why, but I'm intrigued by her voice and her face. She's not particularly attractive, but she certainly isn't unpleasant-looking. She just seems so very knowledgable. If she ever does a book-signing in my area and I hear of it, you can bet I'll be there.
