Books I’ve recently finished:
Books I’m currently reading:
- Streams in the Desert
- Writing as a Way of Healing
- Emotions and the Heart | Bible Study
- Women of the Word
- Ellie and the Harpmaker
My guess is it doesn’t surprise you I’m currently reading so many books. It’s the bed rest I’m on, for sure, but it’s also the huge “redirect” of my schedule. I have less I’m trying to accomplish each day, which means I have more time to be disciplined with my reading goals.
For each of the books I’m currently reading, I have a daily goal to read one chapter from each book. I noted this should help me finish each book within 10 days of starting, which is really encouraging. When I take too long to finish a book, I miss so much of the written talent the author has gathered for the reader. (Sad!) With the novel I’m reading, I’m actually reading more than one chapter each day. Whenever I feel I’m in a reading (or writing) funk, having a compelling novel on my bookshelf is so helpful.
I like to track the books I’ve read on the back page of my Moleskine journal. If I didn’t record them there, I’d absolutely forget most of them. Haha, isn’t that a funny reality?!
That wraps up this post! I would love to hear your book suggestions – leave the title or a link below in the comments. Do you record the books you read each year? If you keep a journal, like I do, it’s a fun way to review your reading interests as you reflect on years past.
Alright! I wish you a very lovely weekend :)
