I read a fun book that was a quick read, but a really nice one.  The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion is an endearing tale of a socially awkward yet super smart scientist, who effectively learns how to navigate his way in the world through falling in love unexpectedly.  I'm looking forward to reading its sequel, The  Rosie Effect.  I'm really interested in seeing how the romance progresses, in that inescapable journey of marriage.

In a slightly more serious and seasonal move, I'm also reading The Last Temptation of Christ.  I've started this book several times, but I feel this is the season that I'll actually finish it.  I cannot fully describe how this work has changed me, and enhanced my faith.  It's kind of funny because I had the soundtrack from the movie a long time ago, and loved it, but yet never watched the film, and only started the book so long ago, until my recent, devoted attempt.

I don't know how much I'll keep up with this blog, obviously, but I'm so glad that I caught up with my faithful reader, my sister-in-law.  She did not even give me a hard time about not keeping up with this.  In any case, I'm feeling much better about my reading currently, and am so excited about the many books.

Oh yeah, enjoyed a great book by Daniel Silva,  The English Girl.  This was rather engrossing and suspenseful novel, and I love the idea of reading about spies and foreign intrigue.  I doubt that I will read books like this exclusively, but this was interesting to me, and had some fine wisdom in it.

Well, that's all for today.  Happy Easter!
