Fall into Reading 2008

Ran across this on my friend Amy's site who found it on Callapidder Days and I can't wait to start.

I LOVE reading, but it tends to be the first thing to go when time is short! It is so refreshing to lose myself in a book. I know I come away a better mommy for having taken a break.

I decided to check my shelves to see what I had to start reading, but after inspecting them it seems that everything is nonfiction, not that there is anything wrong with that, but a girl needs some fun stuff too. So I'm going to start my list with what I have and then go on a fun reading treasure hunt (suggestions welcome). I'll add some more as I come across them.

1. Silent Tears by Kay Bratt
2. Be Joyful by Warren W. Wiersbe
3. Charlotte Mason Study Guide by Penny Gardner
4. Home Education by Charlotte M. Mason
5. How Much is Enough by Jean Illsley Clarke
6. Being a Great Mom, Raising Great Kids by Sharon Jaynes
7. Slightly Bad Girls of the Bible by Liz Curtis Higgs
8. Becoming the Woman God Wants Me To Be: a 90 Day Guide to Living the Proverbs 31 Life by Donna Partow
9. Waiting For Morning by Karen Kingsbury

As you can see, none of this is exactly light reading. I am off in search of something to be read for enjoyment... HELP!

Great list! Let me know what you think of Silent Tears. I know Pam said it was good, but some of the reviews were odd, so I hesitated to buy it (esp. given the price!) Too funny, I have #7 next to my it at the library. Have you read any of Liz's other books in the series? Praying for good news to come SOON! Love, Amy
