It’s no secret that writers can be quite particular about their writing tools. Some might call it an obsession or fetish, but the pens, pencils, notebooks, and other implements that authors have used to create their most famous works endlessly fascinates us. After reading an ode to the beloved Eberhard Faber Blackwing 602 pencil, adored for its smooth, firm graphite, we had to find out more about the tools of the literary elite. Take notes, and save your pennies to purchase these writing instruments for yourself.

I really didn’t think I’d get too much read this week, but as you will see from the list below I have been able to read a fair bit.
I was able to get The Hunger Games trilogy completed, which is good given the DVD of the first movie will be out in a week or so here in Australia. I haven’t seen the movie yet, so getting the books read prior to the movie was something I wanted to do.
This coming week I’d like to get a few more books read – I’ll see how I go.
Social Networks, Web Applications & Other Tools
Not a lot done on social networks or web applications this week. I have added a few books to Goodreads, that is about all really.
Currently, I am reading the following books:
– Discipline of Grace, by Jerry Bridges
I’m hoping to actually make some good progress on this book today and tomorrow. I read it once or twice before, but not in a while. Looking forward to getting into it. Jerry Bridges is usually very good to read.
– Collapse, by Richard Stephenson
I’m just over halfway through this one, but it is a fairly long novel so it will take another day or two to complete at least.
This week I have been able to read the following books:
– Phantoms on the Bookshelves, by Jacques Bonnet
I completed this book very early in the week and have written a review which can be found via the link below. Probably only really appeal to those of us who are really into books and have a library of our own. I quite enjoyed the read.
– Killing Calvinism: How to Destroy a Perfectly Good Theology from the Inside, by Greg Dutcher
This was a great book and one I should read on a regular basis – perhaps once a year. A very challenging book, with many lessons for the church today (thinking of reformed churches).
– Catching Fire: The Hunger Games Books 2, by Suzanne Collins
I haven’t as of yet wrote a review on this one – will do soon hopefully.
– Mockingjay: The Hunger Games Book 3, by Suzanne Collins
I haven’t as of yet wrote a review on this one – will do so soon hopefully.
Purchased & Added to Library:
I again grabbed a heap of free ebooks from Amazon. These are all of the books I’ve posted on my Blog ‘The Book Stand,’ so all posted there I also downloaded for myself. I’ll certainly have more books than I can ever read that’s for sure, but certainly never wanting for choice. No harm in grabbing them while there free and in digital format – if I don’t read them all, what does it matter? At least I’ll have them if I want to read them.
Among the books I actually purchased this week:
– The Hunger Games – Catching Fire, by Suzanne Collins
– The Hunger Games – Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins
– In Christ Alone – Living the Gospel Centered Life, by Sinclair Ferguson
– Set Apart – Calling a Worldly Church to a Godly Life, by Kent R. Hughes
