I have always been a voracious reader. Matthew and I love books – our condo is overflowing with them. There are literally shelves and piles in almost every room. So, I thought I would post what I am currently enjoying:
Churched – First off, Matthew’s first hardback releases two months from tomorrow and we are so excited about it. Seriously – whether you are a person of faith or not, you will surely enjoy this book. His brilliant, David Sedaris-esque way of telling his story of growing up in a fundamental Baptist church is so readable and funny. You can read the prelude here and pre-order it here (you won’t be billed until the book ships).
Mary – Every gift-giving occasion Matthew gives me a book. This book, about Abe Lincoln’s wife was voted best historical fiction book of the year by USA Today. I am only 17 pages into it and already loving it.
Healthy Child Healthy World: Creating a Cleaner, Greener, Safer Home – While I am far from super “green” I am interested in ways I can keep Elias healthy and make the world a better place for him. I have found this book to be informative, practical and doable. I am excited about the changes we are going to make in our home – like using more green cleaning products.
Play and Learn – This book gives recommended activities for babies and young children. Right now we are enjoying singing to Elias, reading to him (did you know that babies who are read to often grow up to have larger vocabularies because they heard more words when they were babies?), and other fun development activities.
A Long Obedience in the Same Direction – This is the next book my book club/bible study/women’s group is going to read. I love The Message, so am excited to read a book by Eugene Peterson. If you have never been a big bible reader, you might check out The Message, as it is the bible in an easy to read, every day language format. I love it.
