Spring Reading Thing

Katrina at Callapidder Days is hosting a Spring Reading Thing. The purpose of the Spring Reading Thing 2008 is "simply an opportunity for you to set some reading goals, share them with the blogosphere, and work toward them this spring."

I love to read, but I am going to be completely realistic here in hopes of accomplishing what I have planned. I am good for about a book or two a month in addition to my studies and reading of the Word.

So, here goes my Spring list:

The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace
I am also going to join Leslie's Lux Venit's Reading Group for this book and hopefully participate in her discussion questions every Friday.

Age Of Opportunity by Paul Tripp
We are finishing up a class at church from the book Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp. His brother has written this book and I have heard good things about it.

What Happens When Women say Yes to God by Lysa Terkeurst
I've read the first chapter and she shares an amazing story of what can happen when we say "yes" to God. I am looking forward to this book.

The Busy Mom's devotional by Lisa T. Bergren

I bought this book in the L.A. airport in January after I had devoured two books I had brought with me and had nothing left to read for the trip home. I can't even begin to remember the last time I read fiction. This story is interesting and well written and had me totally captivated. But I have only picked it up once since I have been home. I am hoping for some days at the park in the afternoon reading while my kids play.

Visit Katrina to read what others are reading this Spring!

As you know, I've got Lysa's book in the holding pattern; I'll be interested to hear what you think! I'm also looking forward to Leslie's reading group! Happy Reading!

Those do look like good books! Thank you for sharing!

Those look like great books. Jacob bought me What happens when women say Yes to God for Christmas and I haven't been able to get it in...I only seem to get a book done every six months these days. Maybe someday I will be able to read more. Please let me know how it is.

Looks like a great list! I am reading the Excellent Wife too, I'm thinking about joining in Lux Venit's reading group. I know being part of a group will help keep me motivated! I've heard about Age of Opportunity, and I've been wanting to check it out.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Age of Opportunity--I loved Shepherding a Child's Heart and am reading his new one, Instructing a Child's Heart, for the Reading Thing.
