September Books

 I'm a little embarrassed to post the books I read in September... but... here they are anyway.

Yes I know that I didn't keep up with my "book a week" goal, and I know that other than the Bible all I read was Harry Potter.

I have a number of good excuses for why I didn't get much reading done (believe me, I read in a lot of other books, I just haven't finished them yet). But I won't bore you with them. However, I suppose the main cause is really because September's calendar looked like this:

And yes, if you can read the fine print that did include a Craig Morgan concert on the 17th.

The excuses aside, I did finish reading the Old Testament and am now working my way through the New Testament--right on track to read the Bible in a year. Yes!!

I am also really enjoying the Harry Potter books. I admit that after attending a conference on the infiltration of Paganism into the church and our culture by Peter Jones I wondered about reading them or not. It was a very interesting conference, I'd recommend it, and any of his books.

But back to Harry Potter: these books, while well written, need to be read with good Biblical discernment. I think too, after attending the conference, and reading more of the Potter series, I've officially taken a stance and will not let my kids read them till they are grown (high school??).

How in the world do you have the time to read so many books? I am reading Bringing up Boys right now (and am really enjoying it) but wont let myself start any other books. I have a hard enough time keeping up with bible study and my own personal bible reading. ha ha. Do you spend all your free time reading? =)

Amy, I don't know how I'm doing it exactly either. It's kind of crazy, in a way, isn't it? :) I am a fast reader, but probably the two biggest factors are that I used to read while I sat and nursed the baby (which doesn't work well anymore), and...we gave up television/cable in June (more on that in my August books post).

We dont have cable or any stations either...but I do enjoy watching my Jane Austen occasionally. I do think the computer is used as my down time though.
Happy Reading!
