What I’m reading

So I’m on day three of my attempt to post every day this month. It’s a big challenge that @scotters tossed out and I sheepishly accepted.

I don’t think I’ve posted this topic—ever. I noticed there’s no fiction on this list. Hmmmm…So what I’m reading (all but one on Kindle), in no particular order:

1. One Thousand Gifts is the hands-down best book I have read in a long time. Her writing is like, well, poetry. I cried every single time I picked it up. I was sorry when I finished it. If it was ice cream I would have licked the spoon. and the bowl. and the carton.

2. The 100 Things Challenge had me at “Challenge.” It deals with American consumerism and living with less. I like it so far. It’s the latest in a series of minimalist books I’ve been reading.

3. The Productive Writer is pretty self-explanatory. Good book filled with all sorts of real world writing advice and how-to’s. I really like Sage Cohen a lot and I’ve taken one of her poetry classes online. Very helpful book!

4. George Washington’s Sacred Fire covers the faith of Washington. In a word, inspiring.

5. Answers to prayer from George Muller has delighted me to no end. His prayer life has intimidated amazed me for years and it is nice to find another of his works. I highly recommend his autobiography.

Have you read any of these? Recommend anything you are reading?

    Hey Anna! I was wondering recently what your blog address was. I am glad you posted on Facebook so I would know. I’m a follower now!

    I am interested in a few of your books on your list, especially “One Thousand Gifts” and “The 100 Things Challenge.” Maybe when I get my own list chopped down a little I can add a few more. :) (I do find it ironic, though, that there is a SERIES of MINIMALIST books out there.)

    Love you sweet friend!

    Thanks for the shout-out!

    There’s a book we’re reading as a family that I’ll be writing more about at some point this month…but the title of the post will be along the lines of “Do NOT Read This Book!”.

    Why? It is (and we’re only maybe close to halfway through) the single most challenging book. It’s called Under the Overpass. (Read reviews and info at that Amazon link…). Absolutely phenomenal–but difficult–book.

    Thanks dear Marla! I ma reading more than 5 books but I’m not going to list them all. :)
    I do think that’s funny, the plethera of minimalist books out htere. Seems a bit ironic. But I try to buy Kindle when I can so technically I’m not collecting anything. Ha!

    Scott that title will be sure to get people reading. Folks love to be rebellious…:)

    Thanks for stopping by, Sage! I’m serious. You have really helped my writing in many ways. I plan to publish a poem or two that I wrote this month. :)
