I have not been blogging lately, but after a small gathering several ladies asked me why I was not writing.
No real reason, just life, I guess.
Today seemed like the perfect day to begin writing again.
As I sit down to write, I see my big stack of books I am reading or planing to read.
I find that reading comes in seasons for me. Some seasons I can’t get enough to reading. Then other times, I can go for a few months without reading at all.
In the category of: “Really want to read and feel it would be helpful in my life”
***The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. By Marie Kondo
This small book is about decluttering your life. I kinda hate to read it because it requires action. I am not sure if I am there yet.
***Traction. By Gino Wickman
This is a business book–it is really fantastic. I know you’re thinking I don’t own a business anymore, so why would I be reading this book. I am reading it because I think it is a cross-over in other projects in my life.
***On Writing. By Steven King.
Yes, Steven King. This book was a gift from a good friend and I have loved every page of his view on writing. I see it working as I am writing to you.
***How Full is your Bucket? Love this book by Tom Rath and Donald Clifton.
It is a book about interactions and their effects on our daily life. Love this book.
***List for Living/list for life. By Myrna Ossin.
Was this book written for me? It sure seems like it. It is a resource book for life.
***Steps to Christ. By Ellen G White.
This small pocket book is full of God’s grace to us. As I read these passages, I know I am taking one more step to becoming closer to Christ.
On the fun read list:
***The Expatriate, by Janice Y K Lee
This book is a intense novel, full and thick with adventure.
***The Improbability of Love, by Hannah Rothchild
This is a fun novel with characters rich in history and silly in imagination.
That is my reading list. Let me know if you have any great books to add to our list.
