Books to Read in 2013

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).

1}  Don't Waste Your Life

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

8}  Worldliness

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?

I love to read, too, so I enjoy seeing your list! And welcome back by the way! You posts popped up in my blog reader. I read Grace Based Parenting last summer with some friends from church and I really liked it. I also like Love & Logic books.

I am SOOO glad to see you back blogging! Hope you have a great year and I'm looking forward to more posts! (I have continued to visit your blog almost weekly for your granola and cheddar potato soup recipes!!) :-)

These look like great books - thanks for the recommendations. On parenting, I'm currently reading "My Heart's At Home" by Jill Savage. She has quite a few books out there but this is the first one I've picked up and I really like it. I'd be happy to swap w/ you if it's one you are interested in!

Thank you ladies!

Holly, thank you for sticking around! I'm so glad that you have been enjoying some of the recipes here. :-) I've heard of Jill Savage before, but never read anything by her. Thank you for the recommendation!
