One year ago this week, my old blog (Red Letters) morphed into the current one: Kingdom People. Since the switch, I have watched the audience for this blog grow. It is humbling to me (as well as a weighty responsibility!) to know that hundreds of people find this site worthy of their attention every day.
In the blog world, posts come quickly and disappear just as fast. For those of you who may be new subscribers to Kingdom People, I hope that this week will introduce you to some of the top posts from the previous year.
All this week, I plan on counting down the 25 most visited Kingdom People posts. These are not necessarily the posts I would choose as my very favorites. But they are however the posts that have enjoyed the most “hits” over the past year.
I’ll post links to 5 archived posts each day. I hope you enjoy “The Best of Kingdom People.” (Note to my blogger friends: I’d love to see some other blogs do this too.)
#21. My Favorite Reads of 2006: Top Ten Books
December 26, 2006
In 2006, I managed to read 86 books covering a wide range of topics. At the end of the year, I posted my ten favorite “reads” of the year. (This is not a blanket endorsement of these books, only that I thoroughly enjoyed each of them and found them helpful.) Several other bloggers linked to his post. Those links and the traffic from search engines made this one of the more popular posts during the early months of 2007.
