*books not on my original SRT’11 list

16 Books!
Pretty cool I was able to read (and listen to) THAT many in just three months! Loved this challenge! I started with 12 books on my original list. Granted, I didn’t read ALL of those 12. Five { yikes! } still to-be-read. BUT, if you look at my list closely, a few of those were pretty long ones… Gone with the Wind and Jane Eyre… long books for me at least! And that counts for something, right?!

~ Still In Progress ~
The Ministry of Motherhood by Sally Clarkson (ebook)
The Wide Wide World by Susan Warner
Healing Oils of the Bible by David Stewart

~ Books on the original list I didn’t get to…. yet! ~
Heidi by Johanna Spyri
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Velma Still Cooks In Leeway by Vinita Hampton Wright
A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel
Marley & Me by John Grogan


My favorite book:
I’m going to be lame… because I can’t pick JUST one! The dork in me really enjoyed all these books I’ve read but a few did stand out…

~ Murder at the Vicarage by Agatha Christie* – Love british comedies! I’m not one for reading scary, gory mysteries. This one was right up my alley!

~ Stuff Christians Like by Jonathan Acuff (audiobook)* – Hilarious! Would highly recommend listening to it! The author reads the book himself and takes many sidetracks to go into more detail on a few things. Hilarious book!

~ Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider* – Loved it! Loved it!! Would recommend this to just about anyone! Cleaning, organizing, all that jazz energizes me! So, so many good tips and tricks! A book to buy, not borrow!

~ Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell* – Long books are usually the good ones… at least in my experience (like The Count of Monte Cristo!) Long books give you more time to get to know the characters and more plot to develop and… well… they are just some of my favorites!

~ 21 Days of Prayers for Sons by Brooke Mcglothlin* – Very few times do I ever feel like I’m a good parent or I’m doing it “right”, but I DO KNOW prayer works, and I can pray! Excellent book on praying for our sons (AND possible future sons-in-law!) It’s not expensive, AT ALL, and oh, so worth it!

~ Vintage Remedies Guide to Real Food by Jessie Hawkins – This book and one I’m still working through (Healing Oils of the Bible) both use the quote by Hippocrates, “Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.” in their introduction. THAT is my motto too! Thanks, Hippocrates! We are pretty far down the Real Food road. But, this was an excellent read to remind my why we eat so different. Great book for anyone interested in eating a new way. A cook from scratch, what to eat and why, and did-you-know about what’s REALLY in your grocery store book.

Thanks for hosting this great reading challenge Katrina!

For you fellow GoodReads fans my current to-read list has grown to 17!… PLENTY to keep me busy this summer!

Happy Reading!

    You finished Gone with the Wind! Hooray! I'm glad to see you liked it. This last time through confirmed that it is still one of my favorites.

    Well, I think tackling Gone with the Wind and Jane Eyre are huge goals. Way to go. I've never tried an audio book. Maybe I'll look for that Jonathon Acuff one.
