Winter Reading Challenge

A while back Kathleen posted a Winter Reading Challenge on her blog. She says "There aren't many rules: just list the books you plan (or would like) to read during the months of December, January, and February." I've been eyeing this for a while and I finally decided to take the challenge.

I love to read, but I haven't read an actual whole book for quite a while - since litte one was born probably, and she turned 2 last month. Isn't that terrible! I just haven't found the time to read, but lately I've been feeling the need to read again. Part of the reason for that is reading about all the great books different people have been talking about on their blogs. I love reading about what they are reading but I'm feeling the need to do some of my own reading now. :)

I read through the lists that other people in the challenge have posted and wondered if I should actually join it or not. Some people plan on doing an awful lot of reading, and some pretty heavy reading at that. I'm not going to be nearly as ambitious. Here's my humble list so far, though it may grow as time goes by.

A Christmas Promise by Thomas Kinkade - I actually finished reading this one yesterday. :)
God's and Kings by Lynn Austin - I have this one and I'm hoping to do more in this series
Economics in One Lesson by Henry Hazlitt - heard about this one from this post
Volume 1: Home Education by Charlotte Mason
Volume 6: A Philosophy of Education by Charlotte Mason

You'll notice those last three are actually online reading, not in-hand book reading.

There are more I'd like to add but I don't want to be too ambitious. This may end up being more than I can handle, but it's what I'm going to aim for. Thanks for the challenge, Kathleen.

Thanks for joining, Jacqueline! We're on our way to a wedding today, but I'll post a link to your challenge post later.

Welcome to the Reading Challenge. I didn't know that Kinkade had written books.
