2014 Bibliography

Last year, I set a goal for myself to read 24 books in 12 months. It was a bit laughable, because in my younger years I often read 24 books a month. Life with kids and teaching and homekeeping had gotten busy, and I’d let this favorite hobby suffer. At the end of the year, I was horrified to realize I had only read 10 books (other than a title here and there for ‘work’ – LLL or homeschool – I didn’t count those toward my goal). This year, I decided only to make a goal of reading MORE than last year. I decided to be more intentional about keeping good books nearby, so that when I had a down moment I could read instead of browse mindlessly on the Internet. As I write this (July 16, 2014) I’ve read 13 books, with a nice variety of fluffy fiction, deeper fiction, and nonfiction both humorous and informative. I’m getting my literary mojo back, and it feels good.

Edit: it’s now the end of October, and my list is sitting at 19 titles, with two more half-finished books to be added soon.

Edit: December 22. I just logged my twenty-fourth book. I think I actually read two or three others but forgot to write them down, but hey. Victory!

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.”
