What I’m Reading Into

Hockey season has officially started, which is precisely when my reading picks up. It’s not that I don’t like hockey, quite the contrary, but since there is some hockey related show or game on 24 hours a day, I find that it works well to do something else (like read) while the games are on. If something is about to happen, the announcers start yelling, and that is my clue to look up. And instant replay will cover 99% of anything important that happens.

Here’s a list of what I’m currently reading that is not work-related. They are all in various stages of completion, and in no particular order:

When Helping Hurts: How to Alleviate Poverty Without Hurting the Poor . . . And Yourself

Adopted for Life: The Priority of Adoption for Christian Families & Churches

Untitled: Thoughts on the Creative Process

One Bite at a Time: 52 Projects for Making Life Simpler

SoulShift: Measure of a Life Transformed

I’m also making my way through the Minor Prophets (currently in Amos) and I have My Utmost for His Highest set as one of my home tabs so I won’t miss a day.

Some are lighthearted, some are challenging. But I’m enjoying them all in different ways. I have a few more selections “on deck” for when I finish a couple of these in the next week.

What are you reading? Any books you’d recommend?

One thought on “What I’m Reading Into

  1. Wow, you’re such a good girl! As you know, I love to read, but I am far too much of a fiction addict to spend nearly enough time reading to enrich my mind. I have bookshelves full of non-fiction that I haven’t read, but I actually have to make a rule for myself to read a chapter of non-fiction a day before I allow myself the indulgence of reading the fiction I love. Right now I’m starting Ten Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, a Christian author from Southern Ontario who has found herself on the NY Times Bestseller list, and I think it may be a bit of non-fiction that captures my imagination and turns my focus to the gifts in my life. For my book club, I’m finishing up The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton and really loving it. So many books, so little time!
