Two years ago a pastor friend posted a list of books he’d read that year. It was inspiring. I thought I should post my list too – except, ummm… I had only read two books that year (2012). I was appalled. Utterly appalled. I swore I would do better. I started a book club – Thank you for keeping me reading Thirsty Girls! I kept my book in the car for when I had an extra hour at soccer practice. I limited the time I spent on Facebook. I started reading at night instead of scrolling on my gadget.
I am so happy to share with you the books I have read in 2014 (and a few from the end of 2013). If I don’t like them, I don’t finish them, so if they made the list then I generally liked them!
