A full days worth

If I truly read a big amount of all the books I'm reading right now, I would be busy all day.
Thankfully, I don't have to read a ton from each book, still, I end up reading alot. I'm not really a slow reader, I'm probably very average. But anyway, right now, I have alot of heavy reading on my plate..I think I have to read about 20-30 or 50 pages from each book every day..maybe that is alot?

Top to bottom.

Acts- By J. Vernon McGee
John Wesley- by Sam Wellman
Tales From Shakespeare- by Charles and Mary Lamb
The Holy Bible.. <3 <3 <3 <3NKJV. (even if Jesus did speak the KJV, lolz <3 )
50 People Every Christian Should Know- by Wiersbe
The Pilgrims Progress- By John Bunyan (in modern english form, WITH notes! :)
The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain- By Betty Edwards (i just lost my bookmark in that one, dang it..)

Also I try and read something from The Blaze, The Drudge, or Foxnews everyday, if not, then I listen to Glenn Beck in the morning (aka, Glenny Time ;)

This may not seem like alot of reading to you, and I have to admit, the fact that I'm not really reading Shakespeare is somewhat, pathetic, specially since Charles and Mary Lamb were both insane people.  And the fact that Pilgrims Progress isn't the original version either is a bit sad, I do like the fact that there are alot of notes at the end of each chapter, its REALLY awesome. It gives you alot of scriptural references, so a good deal of my time reading that book is spend looking up all the verses it suggests. Which, sadly enough, is something I need practice in.
This is this is just *some* of the books my mom put together for me for my school this year. I'm doing church history. I was dreading is like the plague this summer, but now that I'm in the middle of it, I quite enjoy it! So far my mom has made my reading selection pretty enjoyable, tho I have to say I  *hated* reading Pages From Church was the boringest book ever.
Even tho I do love to read, I'm not really one of those book worms who spends every free minute poring over books and consuming 3 books a day. No I'm not that way at all. Sometimes I can go weeks without reading anything. But, when I get good books in my hands, like the Inkheart series, I honestly have to limit myself to 10 chapters a day to make the book last! Sadly enough, I haven't found a book as good as those yet. I'm honestly so sick and tired of all the vampire saga's out there. Please don't be offended, but I can't allow myself to be sucked into all those stories (no pun intended).
Of course there are the classics, like Emma, Little Women, Freckles, Anne Of Greene Gables, but I've read them all..sigh..At least I have some worth while material on my hands to keep me busy and learning.
I'm very grateful that I live in a country where I have so much access to so much knowledge. So many countries don't even have the bible, yet I'm blessed with so many works by many wonderful christian people, and I can learn so much. 
You should check out some of the above books, so far, I've greatly enjoyed them all. 

Today I am thankful for having been taught to love to learn <3


  1. I enjoy reading but I never have time, so I probably haven't really read anything (besides the Bible and my school) for over a year ): Some books that I really enjoyed were by Francine Rivers - especially the Atonement Child and Redeeming Love. She is a Christian author which is nice.
    Btw - I would never read the vampire books either, or the magic stuff like Harry Potter even, although many of my friends do. They just aren't my type of book...

  2. Sounds like you have a full load. You should come to my house and borrow some fun books! =) I'm a little bit afraid of Shakespeare, but I haven't done any yet, so I don't know if I'm legitimately afraid or not. :p
    P.S. I keep trying to read Inkdeath, but I can't find it anywhere! :-/ Ergh. It's getting frustrating. I've also been trying to find "Out of the Silent Planet" or something like that by C.S. Lewis. It's the first book in a sci-fi trilogy he wrote, but the library only has the last two books. :( Maybe I will experiment with the inner-library loan. =)

    P.P.S. That was a long P.S. :P

  3. wow! that is a lot! I started Pilgrim's Progress the other day! I have only barely gotten any of the way through it but I am planning on reading the whole thing sometime. :) I love all thoe classics...Have you read Huckleberry Finn and The Edventures of Tom Saywer yet?? I love those! They always make me laugh. Also, You should read some of the R.M. Ballantyne books. His are good. :) I suppose you have enough for now though. lol! <3

  4. @Chem. I need to look that lady up :)Yeh I'm not into Harry Potter either. :)

    @Lydia, I need to come to your house for SOOOO many reasons huh? Man I miss you. And yes, don't stop looking for Inkdeath, its by far the best in the series! xD

    @Rache, you should continue reading it!
    I have read those books, they are pretty good, but not something I wanna read over again ^_^
    I need to look taht guy up to, lol, once I am done with my load of books. <3
