I reserve the right to add or subtract from this list at any time! I am always reading fiction, but want to commit to reading more non-fiction. I have several books that I have had around for awhile that I want to read and now that I've written it down, I'm committed to crossing them off my list. I'm surprised that I actually have more non-fiction than fiction on my list (ok, it's only one more, but that's still more!) and that they are all books I genuinely want to read. I have already started a few of them and will try to finish them up first.
Mockingbird by Charles J Shields -A biography of Nelle Harper Lee that I am halfway through, but had to return to the library. I'm waiting for the next copy to come available.
A Mother's Heart by Jean Fleming- Highly recommended to me by another mom.
Teach them Diligently by Lou Priolo-A parenting book that talks about the necessity of incorporating scripture in all that we do.
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen -I've heard good things about this, but don't really know what it's about.
Quaker Summer by Lisa Samson- Her new book and I pretty much love everything she writes!
For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn- I'm not usually into books like this, but our pastor did a series recently on men and women and used this as a resource, so I thought I would give it a shot.
Bill Bryson's African Diary by Bill Bryson- He makes me laugh and I'm sure this will be entertaining if nothing else.
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory -This is a recommendation from Jess and she usually knows what she's talking about!
There is No Me Without You by Melissa Fay Greene- Another book that I have heard nothing but good things that's about one woman's desire to rescue children from Africa.
One Night with the King by Tommy Tenney- A friend told me this was better than the movie and I got it for Christmas but haven't gotten into it yet. And in case you don't know, it's a fictionalized account of Esther.
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen- Can you believe I have never read this? I couldn't when I realized it the other day. So I am going to attempt to rectify that!
I'll let you know how it goes!
