Reading list

I figured I would put up my reading list. Some of these have some explanation like why I started reading it, but haven’t finished it yet.

This was a study we did at church with the “young” women. I quote the word “young” because I was the old head in the group. The rest of the ladies are young. 😉 Anyway, we only got up to a point and the class has been put on hold, and I figured I’d go ahead and finish the book even though I was at least 75% through it. Will likely be finished tonight.

I was actively reading this, but wasn’t half way. Hit the halfway mark last night.

I don’t pass up a freebie, and I got this as a free Kindle download. No, I don’t have a Kindle or a Nook, but I have the Kindle and Nook apps on my pc. I got through 2 chapters, and wasn’t finding it overly interesting compared to, oh, spider solitaire.

This is actually 3 books in one. I’ve already read Chosen by God, so that makes me 1/3 finished with this, and it’s the 2nd book.

I started this and have no idea why I put it aside.

I read Bringing up Girls, and it was pretty interesting read. I was having a hard time getting into this one, and sat it aside.

I kept waiting for this one to get easier to read.

Interesting, but technical. I put this one aside when I went back to grad school. About 75% through it also.

Interesting, but a hard read.

I bought this on my fail vacation last summer.

I am 99% sure I have read this book. I read one of her books when I was around 12, and this title sounds more familiar than The Hiding Place.

This isn’t officially on my 20 by Easter reading list. However, since I never got around to reading this (grad school), and it’s actually 5 books in one volume, I am putting it up as backup in case I can’t manage one or more of the above books.

The more I look at my list, the more I think I should have left the challenge at 10 books in March.

    Maybe you should take out a couple of the “couldn’t get into it” books, and replace them with something fun – a science fiction novel, a detective story, a quirky memoir?! lol

      Yeah, I just found not one, but 2 R.A. Salvatore multi-book in ones that I haven’t read yet. So, technically, that is 8 books that I can sub out for a few of those that I put aside due to lack of interest… And, plus, the last one I read left me hanging, and I need closure. lol

    I don’t know Salvatore… should I?

    • DragonLady says:

      Umm, I wouldn’t expect you would. He writes Forgotten Realms books, and a few of the AD&D role playing games are based upon The Forgotten Realms. AD&D being Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. So it’s in the fantasy novel genre that I used to make fun of people for reading (as well as playing D&D)…

        role playing VIDEO games. I’ve never played pencil/paper/dice D&D.

        Even though I do own dice because I was going to with a couple of friends when I was in England…

    Ohhh, so demonic then… 😉

    lol. I actually don’t know too much about it, but my oldest brother played it back in the day, and I remember my dad discovering it was demonic and my bro getting upset cause my dad threw out everything with no real warning or explanation and he had put a LOT of time and effort into it. That’s really all I know…

      I remember the whole “devil-worshipers play D&D” admonition that went around back in high school. Of course that was easier to do than teach how to guard our hearts from the real evil around us. You know, the whole whitewashed tomb spirituality. 😉

    I wouldn’t even attempt such a challenge, because I’m lucky if I can finish one book in one month, let alone 20 before Easter…lol.

    I’m currently reading a biography recommended by a co-worker, and it’s as good as she said…“The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls. It grabs you right from the first word.

      I am thinking I should have kept my mouth shut. I definitely have to redo my list since Molly has agreed that my 5 in 1 Cleric Quintet will count as 5 books…since it actually is… lol

      It may be a while before I will have the “emotional fortitude” to read that. 🙂
