I've loved to read for as long as I can remember. I definitely owe this to my parents, who instilled the love in me when I was young. I always remember that they fed my appetite for reading too...we were at the library often, and in a bookstore even if I couldn't afford to buy a book, I would grab one and sit down and read as much of it as I could while we were there. Books were popular gifts in my home growing up, and my siblings and I loved to spend our own money on books also.
Reading has been a fun shared interest for my hubby and I also, as he loves books just as much or more than me! ;-) He truly inspires me with his desire to learn and grow constantly. So, now as a wife and mama, I continue to love to read, though my interests have shifted some over the years. I used to read more fiction, biographies, and such, but now I lean a lot more towards non-fiction. I love books that make me think and grow and learn new things.
So...this is my goal book list for 2013 (and maybe beyond if I don't finish them all this year).
2} One Thousand Gifts (currently reading this one)
3} The Duties of Parents
4} A Gospel Primer
5} Multiply: Disciples Making Disciples
6} This Momentary Marriage
7} Shopping for Time
9} Equipped to Love
10} Now You're Speaking My Language
11} Family Practice
12} Christian Living in the Home
13} Real Marriage
14} Trusting God (reading through this for our Small Group study)
15} Organized Simplicity
I'd love to read more parenting books this year also, if I can get my hands on some through Paperback Swap. If I do, I may alter this list to include them. What are your favorites on parenting?
