BOOKS!

I thought it probably sounded crazy that I am reading 6 books, so I thought I’d give a run down.  I should warn you I was wrong, I am reading 7 books.  Fortunately most are non-fiction, so I can jump around in them, especially the one I have read before.

Here is my current list:

  1. Financial Peace Revisited, by Dave Ramsey-this is a first time through.

  2. The New Strong Willed Child, by Dr. James Dobson-this is a first time through, specifically fro Jackson.

  3. The New Dare to Discipline, by Dr. James Dobson-this is a third time through, specifically for Victoria.

  4. Night Lights, by Dr. James & Shirley Dobson-this is a first, and a devotional that Jonathan and I are going through together.

  5. The Five Love Languages, by Gary Chapman-this is a first.

  6. Everyone Worth Knowing, by Lauren Weisberger author of The Devil Wears Prada, this is a first.

  7. The 3 Hour Diet, by Jorge Cruise-this is a first.

I stopped for a while with Beth Moore’s Breaking Free, Brent Curtis and John Eldredge’s The Sacred Romance, Homechooling Step-By-Step, and Homeschooling for Dummies.  I just have too many going and I have to finish a few.

Is there a book that you would read over and over again?  One of my personal favorites to this day is The Westing Game, by Ellan Raskin, I have read it at least once a year since I was 11.  So, know that stands at 16 times.  Other books I will read over and over again are the Harry Potter books and The Secret Garden.  I just love fiction that paints a good picture, but that I can get through quickly and enjoy over and over and over again.  I read a lot of non-fiction so I like a break.

You fit in so well!!! I can only do one at a time, But David could give you a run for your money. By the way, try the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich.

Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller. It is such a good book on the Christian faith and one man's openess in his struggle to live a Christian life. I believe his Web site is www.bluelikejazz.com. I suggested it to Tiffany and Greta and it instantly became one of their favorites.

I also love the HP books and have yet to start book six, which I am looking forward to reading; I really would like to re-read the first five before I dive into six but that's more of a pipe dream.
