Seeing as we were talking the other day about the girls' reading, and how their reading ought to be purposeful reading, I thought I too should purpose not only to read purposefully, but to read consistently.
With this in mind, I think I shall make myself accountable to all y'all, and let you know of some of the books I want to read this year. There are a mixture of genres: some are read for pleasure, and are curl-up-on-the-sofa types; some are read because I reckon they have teaching I want to learn; others are read because they're books I want the girls to read and I want a head-start.... You get the picture?
(By 'read' I mean start and finish. In the past few years, beginning a book has never been a problem; however, finishing it has been a different matter.)
Here's my list for January:
Behind Convent Walls: The Story of Charlotte de Bourbon, wife of William the Silent, by Beth J Coombe Harris
I Kissed Dating Goodbye, Joshua Harris
Elijah, A.W. Pink
The Scarlet Thread, Francine Rivers
The Last Days of Jesus, T.V. Moore (I have read and part-read this book a number of times, and I never tire of it. I have it beside 'my' seat in the Family Room almost all the time, and dip into it as I please. I may ... may ... determine to read it through, but, on the other hand, I may keep it where it is, and enjoy it as I please)
Each one of us has a list for this month, and I'll post the girls' reading lists in the next couple of days.
