[Insert intriguing title here!]

I wanted to name this post something more original than "Update". I could do "Update Again" or "Another Update", but that would just be boring.

Anyway, I'm currently reading several books, all of which I plan on reviewing. My main focus right now is The Skin Map by Stephen Lawhead, and after that I'll work on getting through Nick of Time by Tim Downs. I need to read both of these books as they are so assigned by BookSneeze.

I'm also in the middle of reading The Blood Book by Ted Dekker, and I also will soon be reading Genesis by Ted Dekker, Indeliable by Kristen Heitzmann, and Pieces of Light by Julie Cave. All of this reading will unfortunately make it harder to succeed in my mission of reading the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy this summer. But, alas, an assignment is an assignment.

In other news, I have a large blog project planned for next week, starting on Sunday, June 5. Within the next couple days I'll need to work hard in order to meet my deadline.

There was more information that I was going to mention, but it has slipped my mind. If I remember, I will not hesitate to make a blog post entitled "Just One More Update".

Also, and also, my little signature thing at the end of each blog post (~Reuben/Arkatox~), does that look too cheesy? I want my blog to look professional, but I want to leave something at the end of each post to sort of "sign" it. "~Reuben/Arkatox~" works, because my name is Reuben, and my online alias is Arkatox (for message boards or programs such as Steam), but I'm thinking maybe I should leave maybe something a little more mature-looking.

What do you think?

  1. Arkatox, I was surfing the web looking for info on Ted Dekker's limited release book "Genesis- The Birth of an Idea" and saw that it was on your list of books to read. I missed out on the Share the Love Campaign and was only able to get a digital copy of the Blood Book (which I just finished - it was awesome). I wanted to humbly ask if you could email me a short synopsis of "Genesis" after you read it. I haven't been able to find any other info about it other than it's no longer available and I am going crazy wondering what's in it. I understand if you're too busy to answer a weird question, but I thought I'd at least try. I'm not on Facebook or any other social networks so I left my husband and I's business website as my URL. Thank you so much for your time. If you do decide to send any info my way, my email address is Thank you so much for your time!

  2. Well, I'll make sure to remember you! :)

  3. Thank you so much! I've been reading Seth Taylor Moore's facebook timeline today and saw your posts; what a small world!
