I love to read. Books, magazines, blogs…you name it, I will probably read it. I was the kid that sat in the backseat on long car rides reading the entire time (or at least until it got so dark that I couldn’t read anymore). I have always loved the way a book can take you to another place, give you better understanding of a topic, or even help you learn more about yourself. As I’ve gotten older, my love for the written word has not diminished, but sadly the amount of time I give myself to read seems to have shrunk. Even though I don’t read as much as I’d like, I would love to share some of my favorite books with you.
- A book that changed your life: The Bible, still changing my life! You’re Already Amazing (Holley Gerth), Same Kind of Different as Me (Ron Hall & Denver Moore)
- Books you’ve read more than once: Redeeming Love (Francine Rivers) Tons of kids’ books (The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Bark George, The Little Engine that Could, Little Quack, the list goes on. I am the mother of a 2 year old and a former K-2 teacher!)
- One book you’d want on a desert island: The Bible
- A book that made you laugh: No David!
- A book that made you cry: Redeeming Love – made me laugh, cry, angry, and everythign in between!!
- One book you wish had been written: Wow…that’s a tough one! I honestly have no idea!
- One book you wish had never been written: Walden, (Henry David Thoreau). I had to read it in college, and was seriously bored to tears. Immaturity or is it really that boring?
- Books you’re currently reading: You’re Already Amazing (Holley Gerth), What Women Fear (Angie Smith)
- One book you’ve been meaning to read: Just one?? My Kindle has a “Books to Read” folder. Currently in that folder are: The Fitting Room (Kelly Minter), Erasing Hell (Francis Chan), Forgotten God (Chan), A Confident Heart (Renee Swope), The Holiness of God (RC Sproul), Leota’s Garden (Francine Rivers), 31 Days to Clean (Sarah Mae). I probably should add a little fiction to that list…
OK, so I know some of you are readers. What are you currently reading? I am always looking for additions to my “Books to Read’ list!
