What will you Read in 2009?

Since 2008 is officially coming to an end, I've been pondering what I would read during 2009. Of course, this could change as more books come out and as I see needs for others, but here is my plan as of right now. I plan to spend much of 2009 reading about the holiness of God and my mandate to be holy. So here are a few of the books I have started and/or am planning to read on holiness:

The Pursuit of Holiness by Jerry Bridges (currently reading)
Pursuing Holiness in the Lord by Jonathan Edwards
The Holiness of God by R. C. Sproul
Holiness by J. C. Ryle
Holiness Day by Day by Jerry Bridges
The Discipline of Grace by Jerry Bridges
Whiter than Snow: Meditations on Sin and Mercy by Paul David Tripp (currently reading)
The Christian's Daily Walk by Henry Scudder (Thank you Justin Nale)
I also think it's very important to read doctrine so I've decided to attempt to read through a couple of books on doctrine. You can follow a plan to read through the Institutes with others if you'd like. Here are the two that I want to begin working through in 2009.
What are your plans? What would you add to either list?

Wonderful collection of books that you are planning to read for this coming year!

My main goal is to continue to eat His Word daily. Also try to finish reading whatever books (Piper, and other wonderful godly books) that I have that I gotten some at the end of 2007 and some this year.

I do wish that I have more reading time like I had at the old job then this new job.

It is great to be a bookworm for Christ! I am hungry to eat His Word!

In Christ Alone,

Great list Randy! Some of those have been very influential in my life, and as a result, my dissertation too. Looking forward to hear about the impact they WILL make! Blessings!
