I don't always feel like reading one book all the way through, all at once, until I'm done - or I want to allow something I've read to settle and develop before I carry on with the next excerpt - so I have a few titles on the go and sip read from the one I feel like reading/listening to that day.
My book basket for July, and yes many of the titles are still in there from a few months ago. The items I'm using for church, christian growth, or, that relate to my own academic studies are not included:
Jeremiah, and, St. John KJV: Life Application Study Bible
New this month
Just as I Am ~ Billy Graham audiobook
Death Around the Bend: A Lady Hardcastle Mystery Bk 3 ~ T.E. Kinsey
A Castle Full of Cats ~ Ruth Sanderson Pict Book, waiting for it to come from Bookdepository. Update: The pictures are lovely, the story line is a little lacking ;-) Would be a fun book to use with really little children and try to spot all the cats on each page.
A Sane Woman's Guide to Raising a Large Family ~ Mary Ostyn I've seen this mentioned on a few book sharing spots on the internet and managed to procure a reasonably priced 2nd hand copy
New titles added as July rolls along:
Elbows off the Table, Please ~ Jo Seagar Library loan. This is a lovely cookbook to read
Echo ~ Pam Ryan young teens audiobook. The extra musical performances on this are so well done. Modern times Fairy Tale, contains magic and a witch (at the start). Available for NZ library users through ePukapuka.
On Stories: And Other Essays on Literature ~ C.S. Lewis N/F
Companion reading this with Jay
The Story of Art ~ E.H. Gombrich N/F I think I may be sip reading this for a quite a while ;)
Death Around the Bend: A Lady Hardcastle Mystery. bk 3 ~ T.E. Kinsey Fiction
Pre-read for Daisy. Still haven't started this yet
This is definitely a pause and ponder listen for me - Lindberg's philosophy is challenging me a little, to try and work out what her world view actually is - not sure if I'm loving this or not yet ;-P
Pennies for Hitler ~ Jackie French audio Y/A historical fiction Daisy may enjoy this too, even though it's written for a younger age group.
