In 2010 I posted my year-long reading schedule and posted reviews as I finished each book. I am a list maker and a planner, so this was helpful to me and helped me stay accountable and put effort into making time to read. In 2011 I didn’t make a specific list, and I don’t think I posted many book reviews. And to be honest, without the list holding me accountable, I didn’t read as much. Of course in 2011 I was pregnant, started homeschooling, and then gave birth. So I suppose those things could have something to do with not accomplishing as much reading. 🙂
But, I did do some reading in 2011. And I read a lot of really great stuff. Some really challenging, encouraging, and helpful books. So I did want to share some of my favorite reads from this past year.
This year I want to challenge myself to read more than I did this past year, but allow myself a bit more flexibility than in 2010. So I am going to challenge myself to read 15 books this year, and to post reviews as I finish reading. Reading good books is a great way to learn and grow. I am praying that in 2012 the Lord will help me to learn and grow, in part through the books I read.
I have already started on a really great book this year and I can’t wait to share a review with you when I finish. What are you reading right now?
