As a new homeschooling Mom, I am learning that I need to not be too overly confident in the amount of reading that I will accomplish anymore. :) That said, I couldn't let the start of Fall slip by with out putting out a few books that I would like to tackle in the next few months. I'm finding that non-fiction reading has been almost non-existent the last few months. I haven't set aside the time (or the energy) to get involved in a book that is going to make me think! I'm feeling the lack of that so you will probably find this list a little heavy on the non-fiction side. :)
My tentative list goes a little something like this:
Family Driven Faith by Voddie Baucham, Jr.
Spiritual Mothering by Susan Hunt (hopefully in conjunction with Joanne's read-along)
A Measure of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling
The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs
A favorite children's book for October's Children's Classic at Five Minutes for Books (My husband just bought me Island of the Blue Dolphins so I might re-read that, or I might pick up a Gene Stratton-Porter book. She is new-to-me and have a couple of her books on my shelf).
The temptation is there to make this list much longer, but I'm going to stop. :) My daughter and I are reading Betsy and Tacy Go Over the Big Hill and I'd like to see us finish that book and start a new chapter book - two possibilities for her are a book by Dick King-Smith (he wrote chapter books about animals - you might recognize Babe) or Nutmeg and Tumtum. In December, I'm planning on us reading The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe aloud as well.
For more reading lists, head over to Callapidder Days and join in the Fall into Reading Challenge! This book is also linked with What's on Your Nightstand over at Five Minutes for Books.
