There’s probably nothing more dangerous in your house than a stack full of good books. More than any other one thing in my life, books have been the most transformative. And I’m not talking about 50 Shades of Grey, I’m talking about the best books, often classics, that have stood the test of time and place. Cultivating a serious reading schedule is the best gift you can give yourself.

I’ve had the bad habit in the past of having 4-5 books going at once and then not finishing them. I’m trying to do better, and have only 1-2 going at a time until I finish them. Multitasking books is probably not the best practice. So, for instance, the last 3 weekends, I’ve read one novel each weekend and tried to finish them either by the end of the weekend or the end of the week, submersing myself fully in the fiction dream land. Here’s my working list and I’d love to hear what you’re reading too! I reserve the right to add and subtract as I see fit!
The Business of Heaven by C. Reading has been a large priority in my life for the past ten years. If you’re just starting out on a quest to read more, be easy on yourself. Reading is demanding and you get better at it with practice. Our culture is so accustomed to things that are instant and easy, so cultivating a life-long habit of reading good books will take time. But, the gift you give yourself and your family by filling your home and minds with good books is immeasurable.

There is something in us, as story-tellers and as listeners to stories, that demands the redemptive act, that demands that what falls at least must be offered the chance to be restored. The reader of today looks for this motion, and rightly so, but what he has forgotten is the cost of it. His sense of evil is diluted or lacking altogether and so he has forgotten the price of restoration. In a larger sense, the stories and essays that we’ve gotten from the greatest authors have come to them at great price. I live and die by their books—by the hard fought words of someone else.

All day, I hear the drone of culture and the drivel of my own self-centered voice in my head and I know that I am impoverished. Now, tell me the top few books on your list this year. Thank you for visiting my blog! Visit my about page, which highlights some of my popular posts or will at least show you a peak into my crazy people. Elizabeth Eliott’s books are always good reads. I want to read more C.
I read The Great Divorce and reread The Screwtape Letters at the end of last year. I can’t decide which of his books I want to read next, The Four Loves or Till We Have Faces. You’ve got me thinking I’ll read Through Gates of Splendor again. I’ve actually only read four of the books you’ve listed.

I’ll have to add a few of those, Renee! And it’s hard to go wrong with Lewis! My older teen girl loved The Four Loves, but Till We Have Faces is lovely, too. I like this reading list since so many titles are new to me.
I just posted on To End All Wars, the autobiography of a Scottish soldier who was imprisoned for 3 years by the Japanese during WWII. I never saw this, so I’m answering now. Call the Midwife is pretty graphic in spots. The series stays true to the books for the most part. Now that they are in season 3 they have exhausted the books and are making it up as they go along. Till We Have Faces is one of my all time favorite C.
There is only one book right now that I am placing breast emphasis on, I have never fully read my bible. There I said it out loud, let everyone scream to the rooftops that I am a barbarian. I have a hard time sometimes practicing what I feel is a Christian life and I decided it was time to do something about it. I at first looked at doing a bible study. I saw a few that intrigued me but just did not feel right.
I think I reading exactly what you are! Its fabulous to read a little bit of the Old Testament with the New Testament and a little Psalms and Proverbs all on one day. I’ve done well so far too. I do tend to sometimes have to read 2 days at once.
I have often neglected the scriptures for a host of bad reasons, but I read a book once that talked about the Scriptures being a gift that we can open everyday for peace and help and encouragement. They’re much more than that, too, and I’m so thankful we can so freely read and partake of CHrist’s life by reading His words. Sending you much love and encouragement! It took me over twenty five years of being a Christian before I committed to reading the Bible. I can’t express enough how it CHANGED MT LIFE! I personally believe that is one of the biggest reasons so many Christians struggle.

If we aren’t reading His Word which is alive then we truly cannot KNOW Him. If you don’t mind, may I encourage you as you seek to read through the Bible? We all need to read through the Bible for sure. I think it’s great that with as much to choose from to read today that you are sticking to the Bible.
It does pale in comparison to anything else we could ever read. Remember, though that God is most interested in who you are than in what you know. It isn’t our theology or our knowledge of the Bible, even, or anything else that God cares most about. The Prodigal God by Thomas Keller, was awesome.
Looks at the story of the Prodigal Son from a very convicting vantage point. It’s a wonderful book that will change the way you view the parable. BTW, the author is Tim Keller, of Redeemer church in Manhatten. Beautiful story of conversion at Oxford. Normally, not a place of conversion.
Haven’t heard of that one, Kathryn! I love this post and that you have Jennifer Fulwiler’s book on your list. My mom reads her blog and frequently sends me her posts. And, your menu bar is centered and lookin’ good! Can’t wait to read her book!
Florida Child Care Training Requirements
Thank you for your book list. I need to read the great literature on my shelf. Making time and scheduling it is very important. I have a mental list but I think I need to write it down. EVERY SINGLE person I’ve talked to in the last month has recommended it! I realize I have become lazy in my choice of reading material. I love the way he weaves history through generations, but he isn’t deep.
After reading this post I know I need to challenge myself again. Thank you Edie for making me want to be better. Sounds like a great list, Mandy! I’m happy to see you liked Veith’s God at Work. I have Os Guiness’s book on my shelf. Perhaps I need to put that on my list for this year. I also want to re-read Bo Giertz’s The Hammer of God.
I have started Susan Wise Bauer’s The Well Educated Mind: a guide to the Classical education you never had. She has a pretty extensive reading list in there that I have high hopes for. My in real life bookclub has been reading from her list for 5 or 6 years. Such an awesome way to start reading the classics! I was glad to see I have read several books in your pile. Nouwen is a challenge to read and often very thought provoking.
2. Read some fun, age-appropriate books about the first day of school.
Oz’s books reveal a great intellect couples with common sense. When teaching church history to high school student, I assigned The Imitation of Christ by Thomas a’Kempis. They whinned of course but in the end most were glad to have been stretched. I’m SO glad you posted your reading list for 2014! I love good book recommendations and I have been wanting to recommend one to you for the longest time. It’s called The Hawk and the Dove by Penelope Wilcock and is a fictional account of life in a medieval monastery. The characters are unforgettable and paint the themes of grace, humility, leadership, loyalty, disability and suffering in vivid colors.
I keep things in there and then every few weeks, order a few! I’m waiting on The Antelope to get to my doorstep! And I ordered almost every book that you and Melanie talked about in your interview. Plus, I have a huge stack of books that I’ve purchased that I need to make my way through.
If I could read all day, I totally would. Yes, after my last two weeks of interviewing other book-ish friends, my list grew quite a bit, too! I would like to recommend Cutting For Stone, by Abraham Verghese. I read his first book maybe 15 years ago, but not this one. He was a professor at my medical school!
I loved this quote and Flannery O’Connor’s too. I’m linking this post to my blog. As a working and homeschooling mother I absolutely LOVE to read. Michele, I’ve never seen anyone with so many books. The problem is they are a lot of unread books. Can you give some helpful hints on finding time to read?
During the week, it’s harder, Michele, but I read some early in the mornings all always carry a book with me when I’m out and about, in case there will be pockets of time. I get lots done on the weekends, usually. If I’m really busy for 2-3 weekends in a row, I start to miss my books! I’m working on a daily schedule type post, because I always find it interesting to see how other moms do it!

Thank you for the helpful hints. Is that what made you simplify your closet? I am looking forward to reading it. I just started Tsh’s book, but it’s great.
I’ve needed to simplify my closet since the fire. We were given lots of clothes, some that never really fit right, but you keep them because it’s sentimental and they were gifts. Probably not a great reason to keep them all, but it was time to purge! Love your list, Angela, and thanks for sharing!
I am one of those annoying people who can go on and on about books and such. So, I’m really going to try not to write a novella here. I like to read one non-fiction and one fiction at the same time. I’ve just started re-reading Mere Christianity. Cold Tangerines and several of the others you listed. Fiction wise, I’m working my way through The Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Petersen and I’m loving it. We gave the first three to our oldest for Christmas and he’s already finished all of them.
