Amanda over at Serenity Now is having another blog party.
This month’s topic is your summer reading list. At first I didn’t want to join. After all, my reading list right now isn’t too exciting. And I’m pretty sure the books I’m reading to the kids don’t count =) But, then I thought that someone else might be interested in what I’m reading.
The 5 books I’m reading right now (yes, I am reading that many)
1) The Uncommon Woman by Susie Larson
2) Run Like A Mother by Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea
3) Run Less, Run Faster by Bill Pierce, Scott Murr and Ray Moss
4) Barefoot Running by Michael Sandler
5) Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham Jr
I generally read non- fiction books. Usually some type of devotional/ Bible study or health and nutrition related. These types of books seem easier to put down and walk away from for awhile (except the Bible studies- that’s an almost daily read).
Next up on my list are books about gluten- free living. Not that anyone in the house needs a gluten- free diet. It’s just something that is interesting to me. I’ll probably start with Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. And then find other books and cookbooks for more information =) Of course, the books I’m reading now will take me quite awhile to get through, so it’ll probably be a few months before I get to any others lol!
I can’t really say I have any favorite magazines. Every so often we’ll pick up one on hobby farms or country living (looking forward to the day we can move back to the country =)) but that’s about it.
I find time to read by getting up early or by putting the kids to bed early (or earlier than normal ;)).
I usually get my books off of Amazon. It’s so much easier to just order them instead of running to the store, trying to keep the kids entertained while I look…
These are the 5 books that we’re reading to the kids right now.
1) American Bible Society Read and Learn Bible
2) Bible Prayers for Bedtime by Jane Landreth
3) The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf
4) The Year at Maple Hill Farm by Alice and Martin Provensen
5) The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle
The last 3 books on this list are part of the books for the kindergarden curriculum that I’m using with Junior. The nice thing about the books is that all 3 of the kids like to sit and listen to the stories.
