2011 Book List

I love to read. But I rarely finish anything (nevermind that I have 100 different things I could be doing in my “free time” (a.k.a. time when children are sleeping). Oh, the life of a mother…) Therefore, I am trying to keep myself accountable by posting here, for everyone to see, my reading GOALS for the entire year. Most of these books aren’t books I’m dyingto read, but rather books that have been on my shelf for many years and still left untouched. Someone gave them to me or some I may have purchased when I was really interested in something but since have forgotten about them, or ashamedly I say, some of them are books I was supposed to read in Bible College but didn’t. Some of them I am very anxious to read… those ones usually get read first. I will write a brief synopsis after I read them. Okay, time to get a blanket and some peppermint tea…

**Update: I am revising my 2011 Book List because a lot of things have changed in our lives lately and I have been picking up books relating to that change. I have also started a few that were on the list, and they were terrible (in my opinion) so I am removing them.
