What I am Reading
I have been doing a lot of reading lately. Since I've been home alone so many evenings, I decided to fill the hours with books instead of television and the internet like I usually do. I just finished Light on Snow by Anita Shreve. It was very good. I have read many, but not all of her books and enjoyed them all. I just started reading The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I have never read anything by her, and am enjoying it too. If a book doesn't catch my interest right from the beginning, I have a hard time finishing it, although I always try to finish a book once I start it. Next on my list is The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. I have never read any of her books either, so I am anxious to see if I like them. After that I am planning on reading The Blind Assasin by Margaret Atwood. I fell in love with her books in college after reading some of her short stories. My husband brought me all of these books home from work, after I complained I had nothing to read. In addition to the above fiction titles, I have decided to read one book on adoption or parenting or attachment per month until Sophie comes home. I am starting with Twenty things Adoptive Kids Wish Their Adoptive Parents Knew. I have only made it through the first few chapters, but am finding it interesting, especially being adopted myself. Lastly, I have pledged(to myself) to read the Bible daily. I received The Daily Bible for Christmas a couple of years ago, but never made it through the whole thing. It's time to pick it back up again. Well, I guess that's it! Looking at the above list, it looks like I better get going. I have a lot of reading to do! So, what are you all reading?
