Will is currently reading:
Perelandra, and
That Hideous Strength, both by CS Lewis
{Will reads through books much faster than I do, so he's only usually reading 1 or 2 at a time!}

    1. Thanks :) I also enjoy learning about what others are reading, too - there are so many great books (oh, if only I had time to read them all!). :)

  3. I jumped over here from Whole Hearted Homes! I love looking at what other people are reading! I am taking a few from here to add to what I read to my kids. Thanks! Here's my reading list this month: http://womenwithintention.com/december-2013-reading-list-november-2013-update/

    1. I'm glad you're here, Jenny! Thanks for sharing your list, too - I'm kind of nosy in that way - I love knowing what other people are reading! :)

      Thanks for the encouragement!

  4. Wow, what a reading list! These look amazing. How old are your children?

    1. Gabby, my girls are 7, 6, & 3. Most of the books on the girls' lists come right from the Sonlight Curriculum core books (Core B [grade 1] for my big girls and P3/4 for Hannah]. This is our 5th year of using Sonlight for homeschooling and it's a perfect fit for our family! :)

      Thanks for stopping by! :D

  5. I love Hinds Feet & try to read it at least once a year :) Loved seeing these lists!

    1. I'd never read it before, but I can see where it would become a once-a-year book - it's phenomenal!!

      Thank you for stopping by! :)

  6. Always love to see other people's reading lists to pick up recommendations to add to my own to read pile.
    Thanks for sharing at Essential Fridays.
    Mel from Essential Thing Devotions.

    1. Thanks, Mel! I'm always drawn to others' recommendations too! If only there were enough time to read them all...! :)

  7. Thank you so much for sharing with Adorned From Above’s Link Party. We love having your join the fun.

  8. Thanks for sharing. I miss those days and hours when we read aloud.

    1. They are precious times! There is just something wondrous about reading with and to children :)
