Christy Awards Challenge


I was wandering around bookjourney.wordpress.com and came acroos the 'Christy Awards Challenge' so I took a look and I decided, "you know what, it has actually been MORE challenging for me to find Christian fiction books that interest me...I'm going to join this." I have no problem with Christian non-fiction and Christian help books,etc. But fiction books...ehhh.....
So this is going to be great for me. Widen my horizon, find some great books and some more favorite authors!

Even though I would love to do the 7th Tier, I don't have time for that! But I will put all of them on my TBR List! As long as it is! So I am going to stick to "Baby Steps: 1st Tier." Here are my choices:

1.The Rook by Steven James

2. By Reason of Insanity by Randy Singer

3. Winter Haven by Athol Dickson


Go to either BookJourney.wordpress.com and look for the link 'Christy Awards Challenge' or go to http://www.christyawardschallenge.com/2009/11/christy-nominated-and-awarded-books.html to learn more and/or sign up for the challenge! But there are rules/guidelines:
