So I finished my second book of the year last night, The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It was such a good book and I recommend it to anyone who likes to read, wants a good read, has or hasn’t seen the movie, or really anyone in general. I am keeping up with my goal to read a book a week so far and am now starting on my third book, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, by C.S. Lewis.
One thing I want for Christmas.
This is an easy one. The one thing I want for Christmas is a Kindle and I know that I am getting one, because my parents aren’t internet shopping savvy and they had me purchase my own Kindle. So a Kindle will soon be in my hands 😀
Disclaimer – yes this is about what I want for Christmas, but in my mind, the true meaning of Christmas has nothing about gifts that other people are going to buy/give me and everything to do with the gift that God gave me some 2000 years ago in his son Jesus.
My favorite book(s). That “s” is necessary. I don’t think I could pick out just one book that is my favorite. I was the child that you could always find reading somewhere. I would read in the car, in the bathtub, on the toilet, in my room, in school, at home, ANYWHERE. I always had a book in my hand. To this day I still love to read, but the amount of time that I have actually been able to spend reading in the past few years has been minimal, but I am hoping to pick that up again. My goal for next year is to read a new book every month on my new Kindle that is coming for Christmas. 😀
Anywho… this blog post is supposed to be about my favorite books, not my love of reading and my reading plan. So here they are in no particular order, just a random off the top of my head list.
