Along with the walking I’m doing for my children in 2013 I have started a new page on the blog. You probably didn’t even notice. The new tab above is “Books Read 2013”. This goes with one of my goals for the new year. I always enjoy reading others posts about books they’ve read each year and it makes me wonder how many good books I’ve read during a year. 2013 is my year to keep track of my reading!
I’m keeping it simple, putting everything on that page. When I see a book I want to read it goes on the page under “Books I Plan to Read”. It stays there until I finally start reading the book, which could be days, weeks, or months.
Once I start reading a book it moves down the page under “Books I am Currently Reading”. I usually have a stack of books going because I never know just what I will be in the mood to read.
Finished books move the rest of the way down the page under “Books I Finished Reading in 2013”. I already have one title there. I started it a few days ago and finished it up today. You’ll have to click the tab above to see what book it was!
Here is my question for you:
What are some ‘must-read’ titles you would suggest I read?
Some background to guide your suggestions may help. I’m a huge fan of historical fiction, don’t mind Amish fiction, non-fiction is good, inspirational works, classics, and even light mysteries. I’ve read the occasional sci-fi and fantasy.
What I don’t like to read: Bedroom scenes, scary mysteries, horror, or a romance book I couldn’t hand to my 11 year old daughter to read.
What I gave up reading when I realized I wouldn’t let my children read them: the Twilight Saga(so NOT a good example of teen/parent relationships OR romance), the Hunger Games (violence ad nauseum), and anything similar.
So there you have it, comment with your book suggestions and they just may make my list to read this year.
