This past year I spent a lot of time reading. I rediscovered an old love and spent much of my spare time (little though I have) with a book in my hands. Reading was the perfect substitute for TV watching (which we gave up last year), as well as the perfect way for a perfectionist like me to multi-task while breastfeeding an infant.
Yes, that means that I felt like I was wasting time if I was only feeding/holding/sitting while also producing the best milk on the planet. Crazy, I know.
Looking back at all the books I read (46+ books made the list last year), I'm excited and encouraged to keep reading this year. My hope though, is to maybe read a little less fiction and a little more of everything else.
Can you tell I'm trying to make "everything else" it's own genre?
On my bedside table I'm working on a couple interesting reads
Killing Sacred Cows: Overcoming the Financial Myths That Are Destroying Your Prosperity by Garrett B Gunderson. I'm not sure what I can say about it yet, but the first few pages sure are interesting and challenge the reader to think outside the box.
Passionate Housewives Desperate for God by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald. This book was given to me by a friend and it's the first Vision Forum book I've read. Or started to read.
Uprooting Anger by Robert D Jones. I'm about half way through this book and am finding it quite terrible. Terrible as in, so convicting, crying over my sins, wishing for heaven, terrible. What I really mean is it's quite fantastic. It is just what I needed. I'd recommend it.
In addition, some friends and I just started a book club. I'm very excited to read different literature together, and to be pushed outside my normal reading habits. More on this when we finish our first book, The Help by Kathryn Stockett
