What I'm reading right nowHaven’t had too much time to read lately. Work has been busy and between that and after-school activities, my evenings are filled to the brim. By the time I finally slow down in the evenings I may read a page or two and then my eyes are at half-mast and I’m ready to crash for the evening.

BUT

Here are a few books on my to-read list.  Ones I am hoping to get to in the coming weeks – as things (hopefully) slow down a bit at work and the kids’ activities take a hiatus for the holidays.

Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo: Book Cover Heaven is for Real : A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

This book my mom told me about yesterday. I promptly downloaded it to Beatrice and am hoping to read it this weekend.

It’s the story of a little boy who has a life-threatening medical situation and apparently goes to Heaven. While he is there, he meets God, Jesus, his great-grandfather and the sister who was miscarried by his mom.  He returns and recovers and begins to share his memories with his family.

The book is written by his dad and includes quotes from the little boy. I’m fascinated and can’t wait to read it.

 

The Grace of God by Andy Stanley: NOOKbook Cover

The Grace of God

This is written by the pastor of my church.  Any book of his I have ever read has been thought-provoking, challenging, and an excellent read.

 

 

 

 

 

A Simple Amish Christmas

I downloaded this one for free from B&N. Looks like light reading and an interesting storyline about an Amish girl who has been living with “the English” and is now returning home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Child of the Northern Spring

This was another B&N download to Beatrice.

Looks to be a very good beginning to a Guinevere trilogy. The story focuses from her perspective and this first one on her growing up and becoming Arthur’s wife.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Realistically, I will probably not make it through more than one or two of these, but you never know.  Those are just a few of the books on Beatrice waiting to be devoured.  I have over a hundred books on there now. 

If I could only figure out how to get someone else to do all my “chores” so I can focus on reading!
