Fall Into Reading 2011 Booklist
I came across the Fall Into Reading program a few days ago, and was delighted to learn that it hadn't started yet. I really want to be reading more books, so I started trying to compile a book list. This is hard for me to do, as I love to go to the library and just start browsing for good books (mainly non fiction). I know there will be some pregnancy books thrown in the mix, and other books I find along the way, but here is a compiled list of books I would like to read this fall.
Chasing Daylight by Eugene O'Kelly (I imagine this book will be read with tears remembering all the things we did with my mom leading up to her death).
What Did You Expect? Redeeming the Realities of Marriage by Paul Tripp
Counterfeit Gods by Timothy Keller
Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother by Amy Chua (I've heard so much about this book I'm curious to read it, not to gain a model of parenting from her, like I said I'm just curious).
A Mom Just Like You by Vickie Farris and Jayme Farris Metzgar
Simplify Your Space (I need this one!)
Books to read out loud to the Children
In November by Cynthia Rylant
Stories of the Pilgrims by Margaret B. Pumphrey (Christian Liberty Press, this is a family tradition now that my husband starts reading this book aloud in October leading up to Thanksgiving. Our boys just love it!).
Anecdotes for Boys, Narratives Illustrative of Principles and Character by Harvey Newcomb
Money In The Chimney by Eleanora H. Stooke (Lamplighter collection book that we just started as a family read a loud).
Helen's Temper And It's Consequences by Mrs. George Gladstone (Another Lamplighter Book, they are so good! We've read this one before but I feel it's time to pull it out and read it again to my children).
Do you have any books you are working on? I'd love to hear what is on your booklist!
