Nothing like starting the year with a good book! Hoping that every one of these finds a way into my heart and mind. I had just finished The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson which was such an eye opener to start the year. The book I am reading now also has me engrossed. This holiday season has been so good to me that I feel so blessed. There is no better gift than the teachings of life through writing. Give me many journeys to go on even if I can’t go in physical form and I’ll be your friend forever talking over the journeys with you.
My daughter is so cool. She is eight and loves many things including Legos and playing Pokémon, both table top and electronically, but she especially loves to read books. I don’t know what I am happier about, that she loves to read in generally or that her taste is absolutely fantastic. I cannot wait to see what her library looks like when she gets older. 🙂 I also cannot wait until she is old enough to read the books that I have written. I know that they will fit in perfectly with her taste. A taste that we haven’t even influenced, but that is apparently genetically in our souls. ❤
Most of these are in the order I plan to read them, but there are two other ones that are in their box set on the shelf that also belong to this stack. I am working hard between E-Learning for a Kindergartener and a 2nd Grader, entertaining and giving the necessary love and attention to our two year old, taking the girls to their three sports throughout the week, all the holiday family things we do, and the work I make sure I put in everyday to my career to decrease the pile, but of course the urge and need for more books always comes calling. Hahaha. I’ve already ran out of room on our shelves, made more room, and now am about to run out again, and personally I can’t wait until I do. Maybe I can convince the husband to buy me another shelf. 😀
