I'm currently reading through the Bible using Professor Horner's reading plan. I love it, although I don't typically get through the 10 chapters a day. I'm just going at my own pace, but it is sooooo good. I'm also reading Give Them Grace by Elyse Fitzpatrick, A Praying Life by Paul Miller and Glimpses of Grace by Gloria Furman. I have a 19-month-old DS so my reading time is limited, but it's still so good to plod away through these books. It's keeping me rooted in Christ and gives me good stuff to think about as I go throughout my day.

I was reading The Spark, but put it aside for a while to read Made to Crave. I am also reading Dragonspell by Donita Paul.

Made to Crave is pretty good. I actually like the devotional better, seems more practical for me!
I can't wait for the Unglued devotional!

More period fluff from Lauren Willig (French revolution spy stuff, cute), and I got Unglued by the writer of Made to Crave. Getting ready to dive in. Also reading a young reader book by Adriana Trigiani (she is one of my favorite writers).

I don't get a lot of time to myself to read with a 10 mo old and a 4 year old so right now most of my reading is "Fluff" I am reading the second book of the Hunger Games and (as much as I hate to admit it) Pride and Prejudiced and zombies...it is funny! My more serious reading at the moment is Made to Crave. my Church is doing a women's bible study on it. It is very interesting but I think it will take me more than one time reading it through to take it all to heart.

Still reading some of the choices from last check in, but adding new stuff when I finish some. I am looking at Homeschooling:The middle years, since my daughter is going to be in 5th grade (OMG!!). That is not a phrase I use ever, but I really feel it when I think that my oldest has just turned 10 and is going into 5th grade. In some places that is considered middle school, yikes!

Mostly I am still researching the state of food (or rather food like substances) in our country. So me of the historical and political information is really interesting. I am really liking In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan.

Finally read Artemis Fowl, it was funny and I think my kids will like it when they are a bit older. I am reading through the book of Daniel. And still working on Made to Crave, and In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. I am trying to read a little more than I had been. Trying to watch less TV.

I checked out Clean Eating by Tosca Reno. It seems a bit extreme for me but a lot of the ideas are good. I am also reading some of Michael Pollan's work about the state of food in our country, not surprising, but interesting! We are also reading Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass as our family read aloud.

My daughter and I love the Artemis Fowl books. They are hard to put down. I dont remember anything offensive in them(it's been a while since I read them). They have some very humorous parts in them. There are a few places dealing with a troll, I believe, that mentions rude bodily functions. I don't know if that helps or not.

I am reading Made to Crave. Very good! I'm not too far in yet, but I want to do the devotional after I finish the first read through. It definitely needs time and work!
Also, a book called Cheesemonger. Interesting. I am trying to learn about at home cheesemaking, so I also checked out Cheesemaking made Easy. We'll see how it is.

Sparkpeople cookbook is out too and a homeopathic remedy book that I have been using to learn about homeopathic medicine for our colds. A lot right now I guess!

I think I read one of those strong willed child books. I can't remember who wrote it, but I found it to be only mildly helpful. We have a pretty strong willed one ourselves. One book I found that helped me with all of my kids, even the strong willed one, is The Five Love Languages. If you haven't check it out you should it is great, and Christian based. The original one is the best and there is good information in Five Love Languages for Children too. I didn't think the test in the kids' one was very helpful, but I was able to figure out my kids just reading the descriptions. This book has helped me with communication and love in a lot of my relationships (family and friends).

I am reading Unlimited by Jillian Michaels, and The Scarlet Pimpernel. And still working through Matthew. Some interesting things I haven't read in a long time in there!

The Strong Willed Child by Dr. Dobson. I tried to convince a family of gypsies to take my 3 year old and bring her back in a few years. They wouldn't do it, so I figured I'd see if Dr. Dobson could help me out.

Now I'm into another Jillian Michaels book called "Winning by Losing" - She has a way of talking that motivates me, I know it doesn't work for everyone!

Also still reading Pride and Prejudice, and getting ready to read The Scarlet Pimpernel. We are about to study the French Revolution so I thought I would check it out.

Started reading through the book of Matthew too. So far mostly Jesus' family line etc.

I just read Jillian Michaels "Master Your Metabolism". Wow, I had no idea it would be what it is, all about the mess we have made of our hormones and how it affects our weight loss process. I highly recommend at least getting it from the library (this is what I did). It was not what I expected from Jillian, but I love it.

I am also reading Pride and Prejudice out loud to my daughter (9yo). And reviewing new curriculum for homeschool. A lot of reading in the last two weeks, since we were sick.

I'm reading Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer. I don't really care for her books, but it is a lot easier to make fun of them after you have read them. emoticon I like the story idea, but her grammar, spelling, and confusion of tenses and characters make them hard for a hopeful English teacher (me) to read.

Trying to read anything is difficult right now, but I will be starting "A Horse and His Boy" by C.S. Lewis as a pre-read for my daughter. I am not really reading anything for myself right now because I am finishing my Christmas crafting in all of my extra moments (which are few anyway)!

Reading Blue Like Jazz for a discussion group. The writing style kind of annoys me honestly, but I guess that just makes me a snob and I should just carry on. :-p

I just finished "Brava, Valentine" by Adriana Trigiani, I really like her stuff. It is fun and relaxing, easy to read, like a chick flick in a book, but not graphic!!

I am also reading "Magician's Nephew" by C.S. Lewis, this is a pre-read and assignment creating mission for my daughter, but fun.

Since we moved and don't have room to unpack our books, we have been reading over 20 books a week and the library card is getting a workout! The kids love it!

We (loosely) follow The Well-Trained Mind in our homeschool. :) If you like it, and still want to do Charlotte Mason as well, I saw a book on combining Mason with classical education. I can't remember the title exactly, but Rainbow Resources had it, and it was some kind of "obvious" title about combining a Charlotte Mason and classical education. Sorry I can't remember more details. :-p

I got a new book in the mail yesterday that I am going to start today. It's called Totally Together, and it's by Stephanie O'Dea (and you haven't checked out her crockpot blog, you should! She rocks! www.crockpot365.blogspot.com ). This book is on organization, decluttering, home management, etc. The best part? It was f.r.e.e. I won it in a giveaway! I've never won a giveaway before, so I was super excited. Can't wait to start reading it (unfortunately, I really need it!).

Well I finally got some reading for myself. I have The Well-Trained Mind and Charlotte Mason Companion for homeschool. Both seem pretty good so far I really like the Charlotte Mason stuff for my kids, we are trying it out and they love it.

I also checked out The Witches by Roal Dahl from the library for my oldest. We are reading it out loud just because it is fun.

I just finished reading The Eleventh Hour from the Secret of the Rose series by Michael Phillips. Very good book! I had a hard time at first getting into it because there was so much going on and so many characters to introduce. But, once I got into it I could not put it down! It's a historical fiction set in Germany around the beginning of World War II. Great book! I can't even describe it. Everything the main character did was a portrayal of Jesus and pointed to God our Father. You just have to read it! I was on the edge of my seat the whole book. I sure hope my library has the next one in the series.

I am reading 2 books besides the bible and a daily devotional. The first is called Extraordinary by John Bevere. Great book about taking a look at your life and how close you really are to Christ and how to become closer. The 2nd book is actually by his wife Lisa Bevere, its called the True value of a Woman...or something like that, I don't have the book with me at the moment. emoticon . Definitely a good book for woman, but especially moms as we tend to put ourselves on the back burner.

Its not what you got, Its what you make of what you got!

Through God all things are possible!

Oooh, love the topic! :)

I'm reading a lot of fan fiction right now. Some of it is horrible, but some of it is really good. And it's kind of fun.

I need to get caught up on my magazines; the current issue of Fitness and Shape are both lying around not getting read at the moment!

I'm also reading The Spark, trying to get my head back in the game; I've been down for the count for quite some time now. Unfortunately, my pants are showing it. :-p

Kristi - I love the Screwtape Letters. Hope you enjoy. Have a great trip. I understand only reading the Bible. Sometimes it is so easy to get distracted with books we miss the BOOK. Blessings

Right now the only thing I am reading is the Bible. I am getting ready to go on vacation. I am going to try and read "The Screwtape Letters" by C.S. Lewis while on vacation. My daughter and I listened to it on tape last year, and it was really good. I am more visual than auditory in learning, and want to read it. It is a great example of how Satan can attack the Christian, and how we allow indifference to make us an easy target.

I also like this forum. I am always looking for new books to read.

I love this new forum. With my youngest being 3 now, I get to read a little more. In addition, my husband got me a NOOK for Christmas. I'm not sure he knew what he was getting into. I read about 6 books in a month and a half. I had to put my nook down for a while so I didn't stay distraction.

I am reading a book from the library right now. I can borrow from the library on my NOOK. Very cool as I can go to the library at any time during the day.

It is called The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Our city does a 1 Read program where everyone in the city reads the book and they have a big book club function in September. So far it is good.

I started Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas a few weeks ago but I just don't have the patience to read it right now.

Read Choosing to See by Mary Beth Chapman in April. What a great book! I loved it!

Would love to hear what others are reading.. always looking for a good book. ;-)

When you are a stay at home mom it is sometimes difficult to get stimulating adult conversation about interesting topics. I know I have gone long periods of time without really thinking or evaluating something of my own interest. Hopefully here we can share ideas that will spur our fellow sparking SAHMs to take a few minutes to read and learn. Please share what you are currently reading and your thoughts about it. Bible books or verses, other literature, magazine articles, etc. Let's share some information and get some reading in!!

I am currently reading "Little Cow Loves to MOO!" (Bedtime story for my 1 and 4 year olds) It is about all I have had time for in the last few days, but I am looking forward to starting a new Bible book, any suggestions. I haven't actually read straight through any of them for a while.
