My Reading List

I have just been making a reading list for myself. This was actually one of my New Years Resolutions (I went practical this year;) ). I made one listing the books I currently own and still need (and want) to read. The second list is books I want to read, but do not currently own. After making the two lists, I realized that I own way too many books that I have not finished reading, so I now have a new resolution. I am not buying anymore books, until I finish reading the ones I own. This is going to be a doozy!

*Note: the books I just ordered yesterday are already added to my current reading list, so that doesn't count ;)*

So, here is my current reading list:

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Life Giving Love - Kimberly Hahn
Fascinating Womanhood - Helen Andelin
The Strong-Willed Child - James Dobson
Mere Christianity - CS Lewis
The Abolition of Man - CS Lewis
The Great Divorce - CS Lewis
The Problem of Pain - CS Lewis
Miracles - CS Lewis
A Grief Observed - CS Lewis
The Five Love Languages - Gary Chapman
West From Home - Laura Ingles Wilder
You're a Better Parent Than You Think - Ray Guarendi
Freefall - Kristen Heitzmann
Crossing the Threshold of Hope - JPII
The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands - Laura Schlessinger
Mom to Mom, Day to Day - Danielle Bean
Reason's To Believe - Scott Hahn
Hail Holy Queen - Scott Hahn
Discipline that Lasts a Lifetime - Ray Guarendi
Mother's Rule of Life - Holly Pierlot
Total Money Makeover - Dave Ramsey
Christ is My Life - Marcial Maciel

And some books for meditation, starting with my current one:

Imitation of Christ
Envoy I
The Power of a Praying Wife

Hopefully this reading list will help me stay focused. Instead of reading a hundred books at once and taking forever to finish something, I am going to TRY to read one at a time...ok, maybe two, but that's it!

PS - I'm linking these books to Amazon, over on my side-bar.

I like your list. There are a lot of books there I'd like to read, too. I also have so many books here at home that I still need to read yet I go to the library and get more. I need to avoid bookstores because I'll end up buying more! That is a big weakness of mine!
Happy reading!

I own many books that I haven't read too.
