Oh, no. The reading challenge has just begun, and I said I would commit to the 6 books on my list before adding any others. But the first two were so good that I somehow ended up at the library requesting their sequels/companion books!
I don't know why I didn't jump on the Mitford bandwagon before now, but I am so glad Kathleen Marie sent me a copy of At Home in Mitford. It was such a joy to read the first book in this series that A Light in the Window has somehow found its way into my stack!
My husband and I just finished reading Shepherding a Child's Heart over the weekend. Although many of the principles do not apply yet as we're parenting a newbie toddler, this book provides a compelling biblical perspective on discipline and communication. Having been encouraged to read a similar book by Trina, Kristin, and Jody, that title has also been requested via interlibrary loan. Plus, in reading others' book lists, I've written down several titles on my list of what to read. Aack! So many books, so little time!
And speaking of books, since I received At Home in Mitford as part of the Pay it Forward Book Exchange, it's my turn to give a book away. Just leave a comment saying you'd like to be entered in the random drawing. The winner will have a choice between 2 titles: Going Over East: Reflections of a Woman Rancher and Herbs for Health and Happiness. U.S. shipping only. Comments open until 10/10 at noon CST.
