Fall Into Reading Challenge Finish Line

Well, I didn't finish most of the books on my original list. Is anyone really surprised? It was a pretty aggressive list, but the books will still remain on my "I hope to read someday soon list."

Books I actually finished:
Divine by Karen Kingsbury
The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
Wisdom for Mothers Bible Study by Denise Glenn (I actually skipped the last part about working outside the home because it doesn't apply to me at this time. It also talked about serving in other capacities outside the home and keeping your priorities in order, and I feel I'm doing okay in that area right now. I'll probably have to re-visit it later).

Books I've started:
A Mother's Heartby Jean Fleming
The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie O'Martian
Soul Survivor by Philip Yancey
Unveiling Glory by Jeff Childers and Frederick Aquino
Lord, Teach Me to Study the Bible in 28 Days by Kay Arthur (I'm almost done with this)
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Our trip to Hawaii brought another book into my hands: The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook.

Life circumstances and decisions about health have brought me to some other books I'm in the process of reading:

Birth after Cesarean: The Medical Facts by Dr. Bruce L. Flamm
The VBAC Companion by Diana Korte
Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin
The Maker's Diet by Dr. Jordan Rubin
Breaking Free Bible Study by Beth Moore

(remember this post? Again, I'm not pregnant. Yet. Just getting all the facts.)

So, there it is. I'm reading. Sometimes slowly, but always surely. There's so much to read and so little time these days in which to do it!

See how the others did over at Katrina's blog!

Merry Christmas Jenn!

Your list is much like mine. Actually, I finished almost everything, but I added a lot of other books because of circumstances and interests that I didn't want to put off.

How are you feeling about The Maker's Diet? I went back and forth between "oh my gosh this guy is a genius why did nobody ever tell me this stuff?" and "wow, this guy is a complete nutjob and I'm not doing ANY of this stuff because he's crazy." Some of it makes a lot of sense, and some of it I'm not too sure about. Very interesting reading though.

Jean Fleming's book "A Mother's Heart" is one of my absolute favorites!

(I had 3 VBACs, so if you need to talk, send an email :-)C

Great list. I am hoping to read Divine soon, I think to date it is the only Karen Kingsbury I haven't read yet!

Oh, you're reading Ina May...get out the granola! ;) I emailed you but it was mighty long, hope it got there! Add Good Birth, Safe Birth by Korte & Scaer, AND The Birth Partner by Penny Simkin to your list!

Looks like you've read quite a bit, Jenn! And don't worry - there's always the Spring challenge if you decide that some of those other books "need" to be read. But, of course, no pressure - it's all about enjoying reading! :) Thanks for joining in the challenge!

Looks like you read a lot's hard to read when you have little ones at home. My kids are older so it's easier for me to read but they have been home for a week or so & I can't get anything done!
I love to read books by K Kingsbury, she might not be considered a great writer but I love her stories. The Hiding Place is a great one and I've done the Breaking Free study, it was kinda hard for me.
Good list and recap!
