If you haven’t already checked out by new Tumblr Blog which is meant to complement this one, then please do so. I have been doing a little more work on it and I think it now has a much better appearance, as well as more free Kindle ebooks to grab.
Have a look at the About page over there also, as it will explain the purpose of the Blog. Thanks.

What is the site ‘Electric Literature’ all about? The best answer to that question would be to go to the about page and find out for yourself there. The reason for the site’s existence is expressed on that page and yeah, it’s all about literature in a changing age.
There is an online magazine called ‘Recommended Reading,’ which you can subscribe to via the linked site. You can also get copies of the Electric Literature publications also, via the online store.
I have decided to start reading this book again. I have mentioned ‘This Little Church Went to Market’ in an earlier post in At the BookShelf and this is linked to below:
Back in October 2010 when I started to read this book I put it aside for some reason – I may have gone on holiday and forgot about it on my return. Anyhow, I decided to take it up again and then to read the two other books that come after it as per my original post. So that is my plan over the next few weeks and months.
This Little Church Went to Market, by Gary Gilley, was first published in 2002 by Xulon Press (ISBN: 1 5916 0049 9). The edition I have is that published as a paperback by Evangelical Press in 2010 (ISBN: 0-85234-596-8 & ISBN-13 978-085234-596-2). The book was revised and updated in 2006. My edition has 142 pages, so it isn’t a large book by any means.
So about to start reading the book – feel free to read it also and join in the discussion on it.
I have added this book to read at the book group at BookClubIt. Please join in the discussion at the book group or add your thoughts here on the Blog.

Note: This is a completely independent review – I have received nothing for it.
I have started a book reading club/group in association with the Blog here – ‘At the BookShelf.’ The reading club/group will feature some of the books I post about here and will give opportunity for members to obviously discuss the books being read. This is something I’m quite excited about and look forward to seeing grow. I hope you will get involved with the club/group.
The reading club/group will also be networked with my websites, including the http://particularbaptist.com site, providing a social network feature that has been missing at the site for some time. In doing so, I will also try to network the website, the Blog and the Facebook page into the particularbaptist.com community that is slowly being built. Please get involved – over time as the network grows, the interaction increases and the fellowship expands, I’m sure it will be a blessing to us all.
The book reading club/group is simply called At the BookShelf (the same as the Blog).
I have now registered with BookCrossing.com and I am about to release my first book ‘into the wild.’ I got onto this idea by reading ‘365 Ways to Change the World,’ by Michael Norton.
Releasing the book ‘into the wild’ is simply leaving the book somewhere for another person to pick up.
To view information on the book and it’s release ‘into the wild,’ visit:
Today’s suggestion is probably one that most people wouldn’t think a great deal about these days. In the Western World, the issue of AIDS is probably somewhat on the backburner so to speak, though that would depend on the community you live within or deal with on a daily basis.
Though AIDS remains a major health threat in Western countries, the real frontline is in the Third World, where entire countries are under serious threat from AIDS/HIV and/or the consequences of the disease on the economy, the community, the family, etc.
So helping to prevent AIDS and to assist in the provision of treatment for AIDS/HIV, as well as caring for those left in it’s wake are all very important.
