What I am Reading


One of my goals for this year is to read more books - this month alone I have read more than I did the entire last year, and I haven't really read much at all yet. Isn't that sad? Pretty much the only thing I've read since Judah's birth is the Bible and cookbooks. Oh, and a Baby Naming Book :)

I've decided to appoint books to each month, and the goal being to finish those books within that month. January's books are the three pictured above.
I started Bringing Up Boys months ago, and while I loved it I didn't get very far. I am almost done it now! And I still love it. I borrowed it from a friend and definitely need to get my own copy of it.
The cookbook was a gift to Paul and me from his parents. It's pretty much a mouthwatering read and I've got lots of soups marked to try out.
I have only read the first few pages in When Sinners Say I Do, but it looks good and I am excited about it too.

With Paul being gone I have been spending my evenings, after the boys are asleep and the chores are done, curled up on the couch reading. So relaxing! I had forgotten how much I love a good book.

I LOVE reading. I haven't done nearly as much of it lately as I'd like either. But, I should be able to make up for that on our vacation coming up. Gotta get me to a library - stat!

Hi Jessica (haven't seen you around much lately, I do read your blog though :) )

I love to read too, I got into it again when Rachel told me to read Redeeming Love. Now I have read almost all of Francine Rivers books (I have 3 to go).

I was looking at the Dobson book, is there different stuff in it that you wouldn't find in a normal parenting book?

I have two other books I want to get reading that book about being a Mary in a Martha world (I forget the title) and another one by a pastor I enjoy Michael Yusef.
Happy Reading!!!

Good for you!! Reading is one of my biggest pleasures, but I know how hard it is to do when you have small children in the house. I think I went years starting and not finishing books.
