Bookin’ It 2010: My Reading Goals for the Year

(taken this evening so it is kind of dark)
We have a library in our home because my husband and I both love to read. Yet, since I became a mother in 2007, I have found myself reading very little except small portions of scripture and many, many picture books. I seriously feel like my intelligence is slipping because of it, or it’s just mommy brain. I find myself grasping for words when speaking and such. I enjoy reading, I need to start reading more and I will make time for it in 2010!

In 2009 I read:

Wish List for 2010:

I hope to read more. These are some of the books that I would like to read in the coming year. They are in no particular order. I have a ton of unread books to read because last spring a Christian bookstore near us closed and they had clearout prices of $2.99 to $4.99 for most books. I bought 30+ books. I couldn’t help myself! Sadly, most are still unread but that will change this year!

Books I Have and Hope to Read:

Refresher Reads (Previously read, would like to read again someday!)

Books I Would Like to Read (*hint hint* to my DH who reads my blog LOL )
  • Laying Down the Rails: A Charlotte Mason Habits Handbook
  • The Early Years: A Charlotte Mason Preschool Handbook
  • I don’t know why the above two books have a strike-out through them and it is frustrating me to no end! **grrr**
  • The Early Years: A Charlotte Mason Preschool Handbook
  • Steady Days by Jamie Martin (I read her blog Steady Mom and enjoy it greatly! This is her first book and it officially comes out in a few days!)
  • No Greater Joy by Michael & Debi Pearl

Now I have a serious love for self-improvement books (my "self help" books as DH calls them) and I have to watch myself! I love books that give me fresh ideas for home-making or organization, or books the provide encouragment and motivation to a higher plain in my walk with the Lord, in my marriage or as a mother. I enjoy books that give me new ideas in teaching my tots about the Lord, life, crafts and education. And you know, I have to admit that reading blogs fills a good portion of these catagories but you know what is missing? Reading a nice story just for fun. My favorite kinds? Historical Christian Romance with a happy ending. My goal? Getting one of these in during the coming year!

    That is an awesome library! How great to have a cozy place to work on this list!

    Good luck with your reading. I know exactly what you mean about not reading much once you have a child. Well, not much in the adult genre anyway. And I love your library.

    Fabulous! I love that you have a library. 🙂 I look forward to doing more reading this year as well. I'm posting my 2010 book list later this week. 🙂
