Reading Goals for the New Year? What type of easy blog challenge is this? AH… SUPER EASY!!!! Let’s have fun eh? Where applicable I’ll link to reviews of books, or affiliate links through Amazon.
I’ll cover books I plan to read with the lad, show you the piles of books I have to go through, and show you my current reads. Books are fun no?
Reading with My Lad
One of my joys is daily reading with my lad. We’ve been continuing our exploration into the World Wars. We had planned to read the Diary of Anne Frank next, but somehow we had a kids version and that was annoying, so we’ve moved onto Memories of Anne Frank and we are going to do Life behind the Wall when we are finished it.
We have this whole section of books to choose from. Will we get through them all? Most definitely not! But it’s good to have books to choose from and decide if we’ll read through on our own or together or decide we’d rather not. 🙂 Options!
Books to Answer Questions
My 15-year-old is struggling with issues of faith, questioning even the existence of God. It’s hard sometimes to make sense of God. So last year I picked up a number of books to help me in answering his questions.
Why Trust the Bible I am enjoying going through. I’ll have to re-read it to help solidify ideas. I like how he sees Christ as central to the bible and works in trusting the bible from that angle. Unearthing the bible we picked up to go with Drive Through History.
I’ll be starting Core 52 with him most likely next week, give him, hopefully, more opportunities to ask questions. That’s all I’m aiming for, opportunities to ask questions as together we learn.
My Book Options
At my bedside I find these books. I have to admit, some have been sitting here for more than a year! But eventually I’ll get through them!
I often find myself listening to books as I work around the house. Right now in fact (since this is an easy post to write) I am listening to a book on Audible called Mad Ship. Membership is easy and gives you a book per month to read/listen to, for generally less than half the price of a new book.
My love of reading also spills out in telling others about the books that I read, or books that can be discovered. Below… books waiting my review!
Reading Goals for the New Year
As you can see, I’ve lots of books I can choose from this year to read from. Books of faith, fiction, non-fiction and books to review. All sorts of interesting, alarming, learn-fromable, and sometimes fun reads.
Do you have books you choose to read or do you just read from what you have available? Buy, borrow, be gifted with, new or used, books are meant to be enjoyed! Have fun in your discoveries this year! If you have a mind to, tell me what your reading goals are for the new year.
