Spring Reading Thing Is Here!





I am so excited!!! I love books and reading and this just puts the icing on the cake. After having a couple of children, I recently realized that I have a bunch of books around the house that I haven't read. Not to mention that the library is FULL of books that I want to read. Hopefully, blogging about these will keep me accountable. At the very least, maybe you will see something you want to read as well. So, without further ado:

Here is my list of spring book reading. These are in no particular order. After reading each of the books, I will write a short review of the book so you can decide if this is for you or not. If you are interested in other books go to this post.

1. Facing Your Giants Max Lucado

2. Facing Your Giants: Study Guide Max Lucado

3. The Richest Man Who Ever Lived: King Solomon's Secrets to Success, Wealth, and Happiness Steven K. Scott

4. How to Lead Your Child to Christ Robert & Bobbie Wolgemuth

5. At First Sight Nicholas Sparks

6. Three Weeks With My Brother Nicholas Sparks and Micah Sparks

7. True Believer Nicholas Sparks

8. The Bible in 90 Days Ted Cooper, Jr. Editor Note: I heard about this on Primetime America, (a christian radio show) and while I may purchase this Bible in the future, there is a schedule of 90 days through the Bible that you can download for free here. They also have a blog.

9. When Joy Came to Stay Karen Kingsbury

10. Shepherding a Child's Heart Tedd Tripp
with Shepherding Your Child's Heart: Parent's Handbook Tedd Tripp

11. How Now Shall We Live? Charles Colson

Great list, and I'm glad that you'll be doing reviews as you go! I'm horrible about remembering to review books I've read, but I'm hoping to be better about that this spring. Thanks for joining the challenge. Enjoy your reading!

I am intrigued by the Bible in 90 Days. But, I can't find the link to the free schedule download. Help? I enjoyed perusing your list.

When Joy Came to Stay is an AWESOME book. You will love it! I have Facing Your Giants on my list as well. Haven't gotten a copy of it yet...

The Bible in 90 Days? Wow, now that is ambitious! I'm doing the Bible in a year, 90 days would do me in!!

Deena said...

The Bible in 90 Days ROCKS!! I have Max's new book, but I've got so much to read now...don't know when I'll get to it.

Shepherding a Child's Heart is a wonderful book. Don't Make Me Count to Three by Ginger Plowman is a great companion to Shepherding and is very applicable and practical. (It's on my reading list).
Blessings

Enjoyed checking out your reading list. Get a box of kleenex ready. You will need it when you read Nicholas Sparks' books!

Karen said...

When Joy Came to Stay is a stand-alone book, not part of a series. But her series books are wonderful, too! If you check out her website, you can see everything she's written.

Ooops - lunch for kids. blog time is up.

I've wanted to read Shepherding a Child's Heart for a while now.

You asked about Lisa Samson recommendations--this new one, Quaker Summer, is really terrific. I've also read the Living End, which blew me away, and Straight Up, which I enjoyed, but not as much as those other two.

What a great list! Max Lucado is one of my favorites! Happy reading.

Alexis said...

What a great list. I'm looking forward to the reviews. Can you believe I have never read abook by Nicholas Sparks? He is now on my master list! Happy Reading.

Nicholas Sparks never disappoints, at least for me. I have been wanting to read the Richest Man for a while, but my master list is so long. However, after your reading your review.....
