If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads.
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
Yep, I love reading and I’m probably devouring books now more than in any other season of my life (maybe excluding all those sociology texts I had to read at University); I don’t really watch T.V (unless it’s Sherlock…) and I’ve stopped that mindless scrolling through Facebook, seriously try it – put down the phone and pick up a book, it’ll change your life (wink)!
I obviously read my bible everyday and I have a ton of poetry books that I have in various place around the house to pick up when I have 2 precious minutes to read a poem; I read at least 1 a day (not including what I read to my children, this is for my own pleasure…it’s a real thing!!)
I’ve also not included the read-alouds I’m working through with my children; the books listed below are ones I’ve chosen to read for my own enjoyment and education.
So here are my October reads, I’m not going to say much about them in this post but happy to answer any questions:
Almost finished this – it’s blowing.my.mind!
I’m slowly working my way through this in a book club with two precious friends – it needs to be read slowly, it’s amazing!
After flicking and breezing my way through this series in my early home educating days I’ve decided to start from scratch and study the original series; totally worth it if you’re using the Charlotte Mason method!
I listen to audiobooks or podcasts (another blog post…) whilst doing dishes, which is quite a lot!!
I’m 23 days into my first Whole30 so this was really helpful to my journey.
I’ve had this in my audio library for a while, this is my second listening.
So what are you reading? I’d love some recommendations for November!
If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.
