Let’s Just All Remain Calm…..

I have a crisis on my hands, BUT I don’t want you to panic.

I just finished my #4 book.  (I always keep at least 5 books going concurrently)

I can’t decide what to start next!!!  I need help – I’m so pathetic.   I’m just plain, pitifully lost.

SO – what are you reading???  What have you read recently that is a “DON’T MISS !!!” book? What have you had on your “MUST READ” list?

    Oh, My that is a crisis. Almost as bad as running out of coffee.

    Most of my reading consists of pre-reading or read aloud for school. Right now I am doing Charlotte’s Web with Mercedes. I really want to get back to Beautiful Girlhood by Mabel Hale with Mikayla.

    The teacher in me is working through Charlotte Mason’s series volume 1 and 6.

    I have just started Stepping Heavenward by Mrs. Elizabeth Prentiss I have heard good things about the book but haven’t gotten far enough into it to have an opinion.

    I did buy Under the Tuscan Sun from the library used book store for me. I just haven’t started it yet.

    Then of course, there is Beth Moore’s study of Daniel which I highly recommend.

    Oh, by the way, I have a “sticky bun offer” on my blog.

    ALL RIGHT! I’m on my way – the Upside Down Apple Cake looks wonderful, too!!

  3. Stepping Heavenward is fabulous:) Just one little word of warning…it took me a little while to get into it. It’s really a story of her growth and so, naturally, she starts out on the less mature side and I guess that put me off a little in the beginning. Although it shouldn’t have – actually I should’ve been checking to make sure the author didn’t know ME:) It gets very good:)
    I just finally read Dumbing Us Down and I really enjoyed it. Part of me was just feeling vindicated (I’m not the only nut-job that things we could do away with government school), but I also really thought a lot on what he said about the origins of our country and of education in our country. I thought it would be a good reminder about why we homeschool, but it also gave me a lot to ponder about how to homeschool.
    I read Crunchy Cons a little while ago too. I liked a lot of it. I didn’t agree with everything he said (esp in regards to religion) but I did really agree with his premise – that Christians have to live out the values we profess. And it gave me a better explanation for why I so dislike seeing a Hummer parked in front of my church on Sunday morning – other than “it’s just tacky”:) Love my brother, hate his ride:)
    I’m at a loss for reading material these days, too, so I’m looking forward to the suggestions you get. I’m about to order a new study for our ladies group called Seeking Him. I’ll let y’all know how we like it:)

    My next “must read” is Attitudes of a Transformed Heart by Martha Peace. 🙂

    Ok, this read was far less edifying & far more entertaining, but I recommend it: “Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt” by Ann Rice. Her journey to faith is interesting, and while there are elements of the book that are definitely reflective of her Catholic faith, and it is completely fictional, but Rice handles Jesus’ childhood with genuine respect.

    It was a great discussion starter at our house, and I derived amazing amounts of satisfaction from FINALLY finishing some fiction for the first time in ages!

    I have found any book by Karen Hancock to be a fabulous read, but I must give a word of caution: All of her books are in the fantasy genre. But they are all very good!

    well this is a different slant…. but I LOVE the book
    “Parenting from the Heart” by Marilyn Boyer~ it is a must read. So easy reading, refreshing, down to earth.

    (Picture an old nag, having been inside for the winter – out rolling in the green, green grasses of spring and you’ll have a pretty good idea of how I feel about all these wonderful options!!) 😉
