Friday Frivolity

A few weeks ago we had some Friday Frivolity and I asked people to grab the closest book, flip to a certain page and post a sentence from that page. It was moderately interesting (at best) to see what books people were reading.

Today I thought it would be moderately fun (at best) to ask people to list the books that are currently on their desk. Just a list of the titles and authors. If you have too many to list, just post a few of them.

On my desk you will currently find:

A Journey in Grace by Richard Belcher
Pocket Guide to the Apocalypse by Jason Boyett
Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey
Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem (servering as a bookend to hold up a stack of CDs)
A Journey in Purity by Richard Belcher
The Forgotten Trinity by James White
Five journals and/or notebooks (I misplace them a lot so have several on the go)

Beyond that are six as-yet unpublished books I am currently reading in manuscript form. I love manuscripts. I simply cannot bring myself to deface and defile a perfectly-good book by putting lead (graphite) or ink on it, but with manuscripts I can write whatever I want. But I digress.

And for those who will complain about this being cliche, here is a little chart which will probably appeal to you:

Have a good weekend!
