On one blog, a lady shared a picture of what she was currently reading. I laughed because it was a big pile of books. After the picture she listed each book and why she was working on that particular book. I thought it was kind of funny that she had such a large pile of books. 13 books! As I was snickering, I happened to look over to my 'chair' and at my basket where I kept the books I was reading. I was shocked! So in order to teach myself a lesson of 'Don't Judge!" I decided to follow in her footsteps for the day. So here is my picture.
And the list to go with it:
1. My Bible - This will always be in my reading pile, because I am always reading it.
2. Jackson in Action - This book my husband asked me to read to make sure it would be an okay one for him to read to the kids for their bedtime stories.
3.Aeschylus | Sophocles | Euripides | Aristophanes (Great Books of the Western World, #5) - I am working my way through this series, and this is the one I am currently on.
4.The Emotion Thesaurus: A writers guide to character expression - I got this for Christmas and it is really helpful as I am working on writing my own novel.
5. On Writing Well - This book is highly recommended by many writers and as I was looking for guidance on novel writing, this one made perfect sense.
6. How to Read a Book - I came across this while looking for resources for High School Language Arts and the title intrigued me. It is very interesting.
7. Creative Counterpart - I am always trying to read things to help me become a better homemaker. This is a new one to me for that purpose.
8. Sidetracked Home Executives - A home organizing book I read about once a year.
9. The Hidden Art of Homemaking - One of my all time favorite books. I am always reading some portion of this book. It is a staple in my reading basket.
10. Concise Theology - I try to read at least one Bible Study/Theology/Doctrine book every month. This is the current one.
11. The Art of Dramatic Writing - That one is not in my basket as it is an ebook, but I am reading it to preview for my son who is interested in learning screenplay writing.
As I worked through this list, It tickled my funny bone to see how my interests (some call them obsessions) seem to just take over sometimes. I definately need to work on whittling this basket down. I foresee some reading sessions taking place in my near future. :-)
