For those who know me (and have borrowed from my large library), you know that reading is something I really enjoy. I mainly read Christian fiction, but also some nonfiction stuff (not counting the Bible of course). I just finished reading a book today. I’m a bit organized and like to keep track of a lot of things, including what books I’ve read. I’ve actually been keep a list of the books I read each year for the past couple of years. Ok, call me OCD or a dork, whatever. Anyways…I was getting ready to record the last book I read and figured, why not share my long list of books? Its really been cool to look back at times and see how long ago I read some books. A lot of the time I think I read the book only a year or so ago, but it surprises me to see its been three or four. And its neat to jog my memory by the list and remember the different things I’ve read and what I learned from them. If you see anything you want to read, I most likely still have the book.

    It looks like you read a lot more before Haddie came along. I’m such a big reader. I hate to think I won’t be able to read as much once the baby comes. (of course I’d rather have the baby.)

    I see you read a LaVryle Spencer. Did you like it? I read all of hers years ago and really liked her style. I was sad when she retired. I don’t typically read romance novels, but hers were good.

    Jodi Picoult does good fiction, although it’s secular. There was one book of hers that dealt with faith, but I can’t recall the name just now.

    I’d never read anything by Spencer before the one I read. I guess it was the last one she wrote. It was pretty good. During the early months w/ the baby you might be able to read a bit between naps when the baby is sleeping. I also liked to read while I was nursing.
