I really only made two goals this year- to finish this book list and to be BRAVE.
This year was a bit crazy for me- finding out about Toby and running off to Florida to pick up our son, starting a business, moving- so, naturally, I didn't finish everything or accomplish everything I wanted to.
At the beginning of the year, these books seemed like the fit me. They were on topics I was interested in and I was really looking forward to reading them all. But then, my life changed a little during the year and I changed and suddenly I wasn't really interested in some of them anymore. And I'm not a believer in reading something just to finish it or just because it's on some list. There are too many good books out there to read something I'm not truly, deeply interested in.
So, I didn't finish all the books on my list. Some of these, I'll revisit this year. Some of them, I may never read.
Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home by Elizabeth Foss
Death by Food Pyramid : How Shoddy Science, Sketchy Politics and Shady Special Interests Have Ruined Our Health by Denise Minger
Bread & Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes by Shauna Niequest
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
Undaunted: Daring to Do What God Calls You to Do by Christine Caine
The Growly Books: Begin by Philip and Erin Ulrich (currently reading)
Give Them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick (currently reading)
I did add some books to my list this year. I couldn't help it. And I'm glad I did. All of these books were awesome!
Every Bitter Thing is Sweet by Sara Hagerty
Where'd You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell
Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott
I'm working on my 2015 Reading List. Do you have any good book recommendations? Did you finish your 2014 Reading List?
