Books I’m Reading Now

photo (2)A few months ago, I wrote a list of the books on my bedside table.  I had planned to read a little bit before going to sleep.  Well, that just doesn’t work for me.  But, I do have a couple of books that I’m in the middle of, reading sometimes a bit in the morning, sometimes at naptime, and at other random times.  So here is my current reading list:

1.  Seasons of a Mother’s Heart by Sally Clarkson- Actually, I just finished this book this week.  It was so encouraging and inspiring.  I highly recommend it as encouragement for the homeschool mom.  I have now exchanged it for rereading Sally & Clay Clarkson’s Educating the Wholehearted Child, another book I highly recommend.

2.  Trial and Triumph by Richard M. Hannula- I bought this book many years ago, before I had children, when I was teaching at a homeschool co-op at my church.  We were doing Tapestry of Grace Year 3 and this book was recommended.  For various reasons, I never read it or went through it with my class, but I always wanted to.  So, recently, I have been very inspired to read stories of Christian heroes to my children to inspire them to more fully love the Lord.  Before I read it to them though, I want to read through it myself.  So I’ve been reading a chapter a morning with my devotions since each chapter is so short.  I am enjoying it so far.

4.  Home Education, Volume 1 in Charlotte Mason’s Original Homeschooling Series- I’ve been slowly rereading this book and keeping track of the particularly helpful suggestions and ideas- so far I’ve read through  Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV.

5.  When I get a chance to read something fun, I plan to read either The Talisman Ring by Georgette Heyer or continue reading through The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
