Books, Books, Books!

For mine and Bryant's eight year (EIGHT YEARS, Y'ALL!) anniversary, I received a Kindle.
(And Bryant received a card. I'm such a good wife.)
(Hey, whatever. It was hand written and required effort.)

The Kindle has stepped up my reading game, considerably. My goal for the year was to read 25 new books, but I'm pretty sure, I'll by-pass that with the Kindle. I'm also loving the Kindle Prime benefits! A free book every month?? Yes, please! 

Here are some of my bookshelves on Goodreads. (If you're on Goodreads, come find me!)

  • Currently Reading:
The Best Yes Study Guide
Writing with Stardust: The Ultimate Descriptive Guide for students, parents,teachers and lovers of English.

  • Want to Read:
Little Women
Seriously... I'm Kidding
Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus
Grace (Eventually): Thoughts on Faith
The Last Seven Pages: Two Days to Live. What Would You Write? A Memoir of Hope

Boundaries: When to Say Yes, How to Say No to Take Control of Your Life
Angry Conversations with God: A Snarky but Authentic Spiritual Memoir

Below are some of the books I've read this year. And yes, I would recommend any and all of these!

(Except maybe "Keeping Faith" with Jodi Picoult (whom I luuuuuuuvve normally!)... the ending sucked and nothing came of it. Totally dumb ending. Sorry, Jodi - it's true.)
