Reading Challenge

I am an avid reader. By avid, I mean that I would rather sit and read than do anything else in the world. Seriously. When I am overwhelmed or extremely busy, I actually feel like I am having reader’s withdrawl. I go through periods where I have little time to read and others where I read constantly. About two weeks ago, I picked up the new Anne Lamott book, Plan B, and also Women of Faith’s novel of the year, Reconstructing Natalie. I think I read them both in a total of four days…during the work week.

Now this isn’t to say that it’s always like that. I’ve been busy this week and have been reading a little bit of Sheila Walsh’s new book, I’m Not Wonder Woman, each night. I’m nearing the end but haven’t gotten there quite yet.

Callapidder Days has started a fall reading challenge…so I am taking this opportunity to commit to a few books I’ve been wanting to read but haven’t had time.

Bible Studies
I’m doing Beth Moore’s Living Beyond Yourself and also Kay Arthur’s Living Victoriously in Difficult Times.

Nonfiction
Gift from the Sea – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I’m Not Wonder Woman – Sheila Walsh
Making Life Work – Bill Hybels
God at Your Wits End – Marilyn Meberg
Cure for the Common Life – Max Lucado
Shepherding a Child’s Heart – Tedd Tripp
Unlikely Angel – Ashley Smith
Total Money Makeover – Dave Ramsey
Inside My Heart – Robin McGraw

Fiction
The Witness – Dee Henderson
Family – Karen Kingsbury
Divine – Karen Kingsbury
Redeeming Love – Francine Rivers

These last two I added because so many others had them on their lists & sang their praises.

Looking forward to it all! There’s a lot on this list – I’d better get reading!
