So my New Year's Resolution this year was to read as many books as possible with my goal being 52. There are so many books that I just haven't read that I should have so my focus is going to be adding a lot of classics to my list. However, I love non-fiction so I have to mix it up a bit. Here is what I've read so far . . .
1. Mornings on Horseback
2. The House at Pooh Corner*
3. Decision Points
4. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
5. The Hiding Place
6. The Pursuit of God
7. Dumbing Us Down
8. A Thomas Jefferson Education
9. The Case for Classical Christian Education
10. Repairing the Ruins
11. Disease Proof Your Child
12. Farmer Boy*
13. Oliver Twist
14. The Magicians Nephew
15. The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
16. Nurture Shock
17. Mary on Horseback*
*These are read aloud to the kids but they are "real" books so they count! I only list them if I read all but a few chapters to them. We recently finished On the Banks of Plum Creek but I didn't list it because Rhett read more than a few chapter in it.
So there you have it. I've fallen off the wagon a bit recently but my new KINDLE is on it's way to Kenya from America as we speak so I will be slowly working down my wish list on Amazon and hitting up many of the free classics available for download. Wish I'd had it earlier - I would have saved a lot of money, time and effort moving books around the world in various people's suitcases.
I wish I had the time to talk about each book but, alas, I am but a novice blogger so I'm just going to give you my list. Happy Reading!
