So, what am i currently reading for 52 books in 52 weeks? Well, I have several books going at the moment. I’m not sure how I started all these at the same time, but I’ll know which one I Like best by which is finished first! ….
1. The Well Trained Mind, by Jesse Wise and Susan Wise Bauer.
I need to read this as my daughter will be starting Classical Conversations this Fall. I agree with many of the tenets of the classical education. Still, my mind is fighting a little. I really enjoy the more Charlotte Mason…toward unschooling….bent as well. And, yes. I have tons of trouble deciding which flavor ice-cream cone to order.
2. No More Christian Nice Girl, by Paul Coughlin and Jennifer Degler, Ph.D
This one came for a review and I was drawn to it like it was dark chocolate. Book explores why Nice Christian Girls can have lame, useless boundaries based on the idea that, well, christian girls should be nice doormats and that jesus was some sort of two dimensional “nice” guy. I am loving it so far, but finding no instant miracles to help me have better boundaries. I’m too smart and have been around too long to be a NCG doormat, but I do have boundary issues as I tend to want everyone to like me. Know that feeling?
3. Second Chance, by Jane Green.
To get away from all my other books. I loved Green years ago…when I read Babyville. Not sure yet how I feel about this one.
4. In Plain Sight, By Charles Gordon, M.D.
Reading for a review–I put it away back at Easter, as I was overwhelmed with family crap stuff. Ended up crawling back to my Bible time and this book. But, in spite of myself, this marvelous little devotional by the doctor is becoming a favorite book that I will read and reread–to myself and others. Photos from nature and science compared, showing God’s perfect design for creation.
What are you reading?? Send me some good tips! I never seem to have time to research new books….
