Reading Challenge

My Reading Challenge

I have set myself a challenge to read a selection of books this year, though I doubt I'll read every single one all the way through.
I looked through my shelves this week to gather together enough for the year, though I suspect I've bitten off more than I can chew.
Some jumped straight off the shelf and into the pile; others came more prayerfully and reluctantly.
Some of them will be read for enjoyment and curiosity, like The Young Winston Churchill by John Marsh, and Pollyanna Grows Up by Eleanor Porter.

And some should have been read a long time ago, and will hopefully answer some questions, like A Parent's Guide to Gifted Teens by Lisa Rivero, and The Gift of Being Yourself by David Benner.

Some of them will be read like devotionals, though not necessarily daily or even weekly, but as needed, like The Pursuit of God by A W Tozer, and Just Like Jesus by Max Lucado.
Some of them will be read for instruction, like Honor's Reward by John Bevere, and The DNA of Relationships by Gary Smalley.

Some of them will be read systematically and hopefully consistently enough to remember the content, and learn it and apply it, like Homeschooling our Children, Unschooling Ourselves by Alison McKee.
So, these and more are on my reading challenge shelves. I will share with you the treasures contained within as I read them, which should keep me more accountable, and perhaps it will be a blessing to you, and help me to learn them better if I have to articulate them.
