In my last post I wrote about being cautious about what we read in the media. One of my goals this year is to read books. I've always had a passion for reading.
So Lord willing, here are few books I hope to read or I'm actually reading this year. I was going to snap pictures of them all with the tablet but saw it was too much trouble. Of course I will read my Bible. That's part of my quiet time with the Lord. Also you will find I'm one of those people who have more than one book going. I crochet the same way. I have several crochet projects going at the same time.😊
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- I'm reading this right now.
Pilgrims Progress by John Bunyan
Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery - My 20 year old wants me to read this to her like I did when she and her sisters were little. Our copy is well worn and loved. Anne of Green Gables is my favorite children's book.
A Gown of Spanish Lace by Janette Oke. I don't usually read Janette Oke books but this was on my bookshelf and never read. Another book I'm reading at the same time as another book.
I really prefer books I can touch but when I saw I could download Kindle for Sansung devices I couldn't resist.
The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer and yes I'm in the middle of reading this one too.
The Secret -of the Strength- What Would the Anabaptists Tell This Generation? by Peter Hoover. This book is not just an Anabaptist history book but Peter encourages Christ-followers to put into practice the teacohings of Jesus.
Weight Loss God's Way Bible Study and Devotional by Cathy Morenzie. I downloaded this book last year but never got around to reading it.
Speaking From My Sock by Victor S.E. Moubarak - A collection of humorous stories and anecdotes. Victor blogs over at Time for Reflections
I never in a million years thought I would like audio books because I love reading but last week I signed up for an Audible free trial and it's like being little again and someone is reading to you. Also I can listen to book while I crochet.
Anne of Green Gables because why not?😊
Yesterday I signed but for Scribd two month free trial which has both ebooks and audiobooks:
The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I read this a few years ago and loved it.
Having a Martha Home the Mary Way- 31 Days to a Clean House by Sara Mae
Seeking Allah. Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi. A devout Muslim shares his encounter with Christianity. I've been wanting to read Nabeel testimony of how he became a Christian for a long time and I'm excited for the chance to read it. Sadly Nabeel passed away in 2017 from cancer leaving behind a wife and child.
And that's my partial list of books. If I get through all these books more will be added to the list.
