After I finished my undergraduate degree, I was sick of reading.  I’d read and read since I was a young girl, and I was simply tired of reading everything everyone else told me to read.  So I took a break, until grad school of course, then it was even more intense reading: scientific research, research and MORE research!   So, yep, you guessed it, another vacation from reading, with the exception of a few book skimmings and the Bible of course.

This year since we moved to Louisville, I have read a few REALLY good books, and I’ve gained my reading appetite back!   I now have children who are old enough to have a good quiet time and a solid nap, so I am actually getting time to read during some of my prime awake time during the day!

I have read more books this year than I’ve read in the last 5 years combined. . .and I have some ambitious goals for the remaining part of the year.  Here’s my list of MUST-reads for the remaining part of the year:

1. Sacred Marriage by Gary Thomas (DONE! 9/10/2010)

2. The Faithful Parent by Martha Peace and Stuart Scott (Reading with Jeremy)

3. Marks of the Messenger by J. Mack Stiles

4. Teach Them Diligently by Lou Priolo

5. Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney (Reading for Seminary Wives’ Institute) DONE 11/16/2010

6. Crazy Love by Francis Chan (Listening on CD with Jeremy in the car) DONE 10/2010

7. Everyday Talk by John Younts (Reading with a friend and discussing weekly) DONE 11/19/2010

8. The Bible

What would you add to this list?  What book is YOUR FAVORITE MUST-read that I’ve missed out on??  My list is void of any fun fiction book, or biography, so please comment with those suggestions too please!
