    Reading Lately and Other Ramblings

    Disclosure: This post includes affiliate links. Rebecca has taken an interest in rabbits lately. She has seen pictures of pet rabbits on Instagram and has decided that would be the very thing to add to her backyard farm. Apparently, four fat hens are not enough. The first step, of course, is to research rabbits. That requires a trip to the…

    Reading Lately

    Here’s a visual of what I’ve been reading the past couple of months. Out of this batch my favorite fiction title is A Time to Stand by Robert Whitlow. It is a legal thriller dealing with racial issues. I really liked several of the characters and appreciated the strong element of Christian faith throughout. I also highly recommend The Outdoor Adventure…

I track my reading with the Goodreads app on my phone. I was surprised to see how much I actually have read the past couple of months when I…

    Christmas Reading

    As my daughter kindly puts it, I’m really not much of a Christmas person. That’s her kind way of saying I’m something of a Scrooge. I’m really not, but I don’t enjoy celebrating Christmas for 2 or 3 months. I don’t fully embrace the Christmas season until Thanksgiving is over and even then I like to keep things very simple.…

    Reading Challenge Update

    I’ve recently joined Goodreads to more easily track my reading. You’ll notice the widget in the sidebar shows the books I’m currently reading. And yes, I usually have 3 or 4 going at once. I’m starting to be more purposeful in my reading again and picking titles that line up with the categories in the 2016 Reading Challenge that I’m…

    Recently Read

    Lately I’ve been reading a lot of YA and light fiction, rather than following the 2016 Reading Challenge that I would like to complete this year. I do plan to get back to it before long, but for the past few weeks, the lighter fare has been a nice diversion. Here’s a list of some of my recent reading (and…

    Reading Challenge Update

    Here is this month’s update on my progress with the 2016 Reading Challenge. You’ll notice that when I find an author I enjoy, I tend to read several of their books before moving on to someone else. A book with a theological viewpoint you disagree with: Love’s Pursuit by Siri Mitchell A book about abortion: Unplanned by Alana Terry (Ebook currently…
