I saw a post the other day, and I’m sorry but I can’t remember whose blog it was on, but it was a list of all the books the writer had begun reading in 2010 and wanted to finish this year. I thought that I was the only person who had a stack of those! It sounded like a good way to keep me accountable… by making a list and publishing it… so here I am.
I have a big list is of books I have left unfinished, of books I want to re-read, and a couple of books I want to read for the first time. I keep moving them on to and off of my nightstand. I knock the stack over at night sometimes. I shelve them and pull them out, read a chapter, only to let it collect dust once again on the nightstand. I need someone to crack a whip and get me to finish one. At least one. And then, another.
So here’s my list:
Grace is for Sinners by Serena Woods (2/3 of the way done!) Showdown by Ted Dekker ( 2 chapters to go! Totally NOT slacking on this- I can’t put it down!) One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are by Ann Voskamp (Reading this in bed at night on my iTouch.)
Intercessory Prayer: How God Can Use Your Prayers to Move Heaven and Earth by Dutch Sheets (Second time reading this… I stalled out but want to read it fully, all over again.)
The Faith of Ronald Reagan by Mary Beth Brown (Just started reading this, for review for BookSneeze.)
Home Education by Charlotte Mason (I have read parts of it. I need to read ALL of it.)
The Bible in 90 Days Bible, by Zondervan ( This one will be done mid-April!)
Wild Goose Chase: Reclaim the Adventure of Pursuing God by Mark Batterson (He was a speaker at the NW Ministry Network’s Youth Pastors & Leaders Summit last spring and blew me away. I started this in March, and MUST find time to finish it. Soon!)
The Complete Circle Series: White, Green, Red & Black by Ted Dekker (I’ve read White, but I found this compilation of the all four and WILL get this soon so I can read all of them. I’ll read anything by him. I’m totally hooked on Ted Dekker!)
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte (I’ve gotten halfway through this book TWICE. I want to finish it!)
I could add SO MANY more books to this list, but really these are books that I have at least BEGUN reading (except the rest of the Circle Series), so maybe I should tackle these before adding anything else. Ya think?
