Reading List 2010

I used to love to read. Well, actually I still love to read but since the boys were born there has not been much time. However, this year I am taking a little time for me. What about that? That's a first for me, huh? Anyhow, I have 20 book below to read this year. There is no particular order and I am not giving myself a timetable, just this year. So without further ado:

Amy over at momadvice is reading this and she has always been a great inspiration to me. She is doing a wonderful job reviewing this book and she is behind my purchasing it. Thanks Amy!

This is my Bible I have at home. I have had it a couple of years and really like it. I have read the Bible a couple of times over in a year and want to do it again this year.

We so love us some Dave Ramsey. This is a simply insightful book and it has a wealth of knowledge in it. We are needing help with retirement, college and investments. This should help us out with those issues.

I have great kiddos but they are typical children and I am a first time Mom. This was recommended by a child development specialist friend. I love to learn about my kiddos and what I can do be a better Mommy.

I have read one of Jonni's others books and enjoyed it tremendously. However, I loaned it to a friend and have not seen it since. This one has the same terrific recipes in it and some new topics as well.

I saw this one someone's elses reading list and it looked like a great read. So, there you have it.

I am all about organization and this one is "magic"! We shall see.

I just want to be the best parent that I can. I am always looking for a great parenting handbook.

I love Ellie Kay and she has great tips on finance.

I know, another one............hehe!

Sometimes we forget what is most important and for me that is my husband. Having something to remind me of how to do that in our marriage is a plus!

Still organizing! I like her books and the layout she uses.

What can I do as a parent to promote good habits in my boys? Well, I am about to read all about it.

Living Simply: Choosing Less in a World of More was on Crystal's list over at moneysavingmom. It looks like a great read!

This also was on Crystal's list as well. It looks like a wonderful read for anoy mother.

I love to save money and I am always look for ways to learn more about it.

A friend of mine just finished this and recommended it. I hope it does not disappoint.

Always looking for new ways to help my child mind and that is one hard task sometimes.

The marriage class we went through at our church was based a lot on this book and I thought a little review would be helpful to freshen up the facts.

I have been reading Mary's blog, owlhaven for a couple of years and her book has great reviews, so I though why not?!

So, are you a reader? Do you have a list for this year? What do you recommend? Have you read any of the books above?

Wow- those look like some good reads. I may have to steal a few titles myself! I am trying to get back into reading also. For now it's been old movies(Little Women, Anne of Green Gables) from library..
