Winter Reading Challange

Winter Reading Challenge

I am taking part in the Winter Reading Challenge over on Trish's Blog. I did the Spring Reading Thing and really enjoyed it.

I am going to do the Winter Reading Challenge a little differently.

See I love to read. I can sometimes read 2 or 3 books in a week. The thing is, they are fiction. I get sucked into someone’s story and I can’t put it down. Not so, Non Fiction.

I have several Non fiction titles that I have had on my shelf for a while and I have not read them.

So, for the Winter Reading Challenge, I’m taking all those Non Fiction books off the shelf and I’m going to read them or die (or go cross eyed) trying.

The List…

1. So You Don’t Want To Go To Church Anymore by Jake Colsen

2. The Mom Walk by Sally Clarkson (this will be an easy read because I really just love her stuff and it is not the hard reading that non fiction typically is for me, but I do want to finish it soon so I am adding it to my list.)

3. Making Peace With Your Mom by H. Norman Wright

4. Age of Opportunity by Paul David Tripp (I currently have a 16 year old and a 13 year old. I have had this book for a long time. I’d like to actually get it read before I no longer have any teens in the house)

5. The Shack by William Young (I know, I know, this is actually a fiction book. But it is not my normal choice of light fluffy chick lit so it is like Non fiction for me!)

I have read #1 - great book. Read most of #5 - good book, some questionable doctrine stuff (but my mom can explain it away :-) !!), but overall a way to get a good perspective on how God sees us. I also enjoy Sally Clarkson. Can't wait to find out what you think!

Hey - do you visit the God Journey site too?? I recognize TWO of your books from there?
I read the Shack - as a mother - be prepared to hold your breath for about the first four chapters!

I saw Julie's review on The Shack. Sounds like a gut wrencher. I have read any of these, so will be looking for the reviews.

Good for you Trish! I might just join you. :)

Looks like a great list! It's great that you are stretching yourself with nonfiction!

Here is my list:

I'm taking advantage of the winter reading challenge to try to get through some nonfiction books as well. Of course, I still have a couple of fiction titles in there!

I am a little late to the challenge. I purposely did not put any non-fiction on my list, cause I never get to them.
