Reading List

reading list

I love lists. I seriously have a list for just about everything: where I want to travel, what pet products I want and what they cost (I don’t even have a pet, y’all), what movies I want to add to our collection, what I want to do to our yard, tattoo ideas, project ideas, what I want to put on my baby registry (nope, not even pregnant)…the list of lists goes on and on. If I don’t write it down, usually in list format, my brain feels cluttered and I get overwhelmed. It used to be a painful necessity, but now I LOVE writing lists. I could do research and write lists all day long. Cool perk of blogging: I get to share them with people! (Lucky you, heh heh.)

One of the lists that is consistent in my life is my reading list. I am a strong believer that reading good books can expand your mind, better your character, and help you learn like almost nothing else can. But I also know that once you reach a certain stage of life where you have to adult (yes, I just used that as a verb) and reading doesn’t always fit naturally into your adult schedule, it slips through the cracks. So each January, I sit down and decide on 12 books that I want to make sure I read that year, and then I assign each book to a month, make the list pretty, and pin it on my bulletin board.

And then I get that wonderful satisfying feeling of checking each one off as I read it! If you’re a list person, you know what I’m talking about. *high-five* I’m actually a little ahead right now (not sure how long that will last). I just started The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. I’m a little anxious about it, just because I know a little bit about her story already, but I’m also expectant and excited. Her journey and perspective on life and hardship is powerful, and I’m looking forward to applying that in my own life. I’ll write again once I finish it. ūüôā

Here’s to list making!
