Bookmarks for October 2012

*Bookmarks is an online book club hosted at Creative2xmom. Here we discuss the books we've read in the past month as well as the suggested reading. Our suggested reading for October was Reluctant Entertainer by Sandy Coughlin.

These are the books I read this month:

A Season of Tending by Cindy Woodsmall--See my review here.

Share the Bounty by Benita Long--See my review here.

And our featured reading for the month:

Reluctant Entertainer by Sandy Coughlin--Loved this book.  If you have ever ready Sandy Coughlin's blog ( you quickly get the impression that she loves entertaining because she loves people.  And that's so much of what this book is about: how to love people.  The Reluctant Entertainer reminds us that hospitality is all about loving others in our home.  While the book gives great insight into creating atmosphere and preparing a meal, it all comes back to the heart of hospitality: love.  This is exactly what I was looking for when I picked up Share the Bounty.  Although a compact book, each page is full of ideas and accurately shines Jesus as we strive to love others through the ministry of our homes and hospitality.  Hardcover and beautifully bound, I got mine at a steal of $4 used off Amazon.

So what are your bookmarks this month?

Tell us in the comments about the books you're chewing on. Or link up a review from your own blog. Let's share the books we're finding, good and bad. And give us your thoughts on Reluctant Entertainer by Sandy Coughlin.

And come back Friday November 30th as we discuss Raising Motivated Kids by Cheri Fuller and other books you're reading.
