Book Ideas for 2011

Here's my list of books that I may read this year.

Ones I have started last year (or earlier):
Humility and How to Get It by Charles Spurgeon

The Treasury of David: Volume 1 - Psalms 1-57 (I may not finish it this year, but that would be nice. I'm over half of the way through, but it's a long book.)

The Portable Patriot: Documents, Speeches, and Sermons That Compose the American Soul

Chronicles of Avonlea by L.M. Montgomery

The Poetical Works of Oliver Wendell Holmes Volume 02: Additional Poems (1837-1848)

Afterwhiles by James Whitcomb Riley

American Poetry, 1922 A Miscellany

The Bible And The Closet Or How We May Read The Scriptures With The Most Spiritual Profit: And Secret Prayer Successfully Managed (1842)

Ten P's in a Pod : A Million-Mile Journal of the Arnold Pent Family

A Woman's High Calling: 10 Essentials for Godly Living by Elizabeth George

The Pre-Tribulation Rapture by Alan Beechick

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle

A Study in Scarlet / The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle

An Autobiography of Buffalo Bill (Colonel W. F. Cody)

The Girl's Own Book by Lydia Maria Child (POSSIBLY this year--it's more of a reference book than a read-through)

Winslow Homer Watercolors by Helen A. Cooper (POSSIBLY this year--it's more of a reference book than a read-through)

The Holiness of God by R.C. Sproul
Lost City of the Incas by Hiram Bingham
