Joe’s Bookshelf

I read a lot, on a wide variety of topics.  Everything from light fiction to in-depth Bible studies plus a lot more.  So, don’t expect my bookshelf to reflect the theme of this website.  Think of it more like a glimpse into my personal life, rather like glancing over the bookshelves in my home, or scanning the home screen on my Kindle.

Also, not every book I read gets posted here.  Not every book I read is worth mentioning, and even those that are may not get posted, simply because I forgot to post it, or didn’t make time.  Maintenance of this bookshelf is not my highest priority.

Of the books I do post, many include a link to a brief review, letting you know what I thought of the book.  Most books I bother to review are books I liked, but not all.  So, read the review before you assume I liked the book.  I’ve also noticed that I tend to be more likely to write a review for a book that has fewer reviews.  Even if I really enjoyed a book, I’m not likely to write a review if several dozen people already have.

I hope you enjoy browsing my bookshelf!

  1. Hello Joseph: Thank you for your comments on face book, and for your prayers for me. I do not have patience being a patient. I want my mouth to get well so I can eat. I do not miss not being able to talk understandable. I am usually a quite person. I read your book about divorce, it helped me to understand my past and to put a lot of it behind me. May God richly Bless you and yours.

    • Good to hear from you, Walt! Thanks for reading and commenting!

      “God give me patience but hurry up”

      I know, right?

      I can honestly say, I have made a lot of progress over the last few weeks. However, I do have a long ways yet to go.

      For some reason, I had it in mind that returning to normal eating would be one of the first areas of restoration…and it has not worked out that way.

      I continue to gain strength, though, and am able to do more and more.

      Have a blessed day, Walt! And I’m still looking forward to that fish dinner with you, when we’re both a little further along on healing.

  2. Hi Joseph
    I am from UK.
    Was wondering why there are no recent posts (since March 29th), and also is your site currently working (Oct2016)?
    As wanted to comment


    • Hi, Tess! Welcome to the blog.

      I have not posted as frequently, lately. However, I did post earlier this month. So, it hasn’t been quite as long as March. 😉

      Yes, the site is active and I monitor it regularly. Comments are always welcome, whether on a current post or on an older post.
