I thought it might be fun this year to join a few book clubs. I know what many of you are thinking right now, “when does she have time for that!” Great question! I’m not sure I do have the time but I am hoping these clubs would motivate me to read and participate in a discussion.
The first is The Jane Austin book club. All 6 books in 1 year, and we keep contact with each other on Facebook. Honestly I have never actually read one of her books before but I am acquainted with the various movie adaptations.
The second is a book called Made to Crave and this is a bible study put on by Proverbs 31 online ministry. The study if for those of us who have and continue to struggle with food and how to find our comfort and satisfaction in God alone.
The third is Saving Leonardo by Nancy Pearcey. As a Director with Classical Conversations this book was recommended to read for the upcoming Practicum season. So far I am loving her challenging insights for a Christian worldview.
The fourth and from one of my new favorite authors is Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist. I love, love, love her writing and would read anything she published. Her essays are simple to read and they have made me laugh and cry on the same page. The next on my book shelf is Bittersweet.
I also have various other books in my library that I nibble on when I am in the mood. Have a New Kid by Friday (ya right but its a great title), Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende, Wisdom and Elequence, and a very thought provoking one Yoga for Weight Loss (its really in my library).
So there you have it, my reading list for 2014 and then some.
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”― William Styron, Conversations with William Styron
