No Ordinary Home

OH WAIT – we finished this!  Ok, so here’s the deal, my dears….I loved having the discussion that we did over this book.  So….

What next?  What book should we tackle next??  I’m open to suggestions….

Should we plan on starting this on the first OR with the January challenge, should we wait until February to start our next book?  What serves you best?

  1. Here are a couple from my wishlist at Amazon. They all look good, but I have not read any of them so if anyone has I’d love to hear what you think. And I’m not sure how suited any of these are to discussion so I’m just throwing them out there:)

    I’m gonna have to take a break for the first part of the New Year. 🙂

    My one main suggestion/thought about the NOH book discussion was that maybe next time it would be beneficial to discuss selected chapters rather than a whole book, depending I guess on the length and interest. It was difficult for me to keep motivated towards the end.

    I’m going to once again throw out Attitudes of a Transformed Heart by Martha Peace. 😉

    I thoroughly enjoyed this and will look forward to hopping back on board when my world stops spinning so quickly. 😉

    Oh I have not doen this before and not sure I can, but the hospitality book sounds great or the mother/daughter one, as I have three daughters, with the oldest being 9.

    Jen, thanks for the suggestions. ALTHOUGH, I don’t get your attitude. I can’t figure out what you’ve got going on at the beginning of the year that is going to keep you so busy. Zheesh. 😉

    Susan, we’d LOVE to have you join us. It was fun knowing that the other women were reading it too – and would have input if I felt lost. It was just fun. 🙂

    I have Girltalk, I think. (I know I bought it, I can’t remember if I kept it or gave it away. I read it…I do remember that.) I’ll go back through that…and Jen, your book, Martha Peace’s book? I’ll see if I can find a copy of that one too. It sounds BRUTAL, I might add. 🙂
