I LOVE to read! Mostly, I like historical fiction, mysteries, and even encyclopedias. I just love it! I couldn’t have enough books. I want my children to love reading more than they love candy. (Which I have succeeded with my firstborn.)
I don’t really care for non-fiction other than the Bible because quite frankly, I get tired of other people’s opinions especially if they wrote a documentary on how to flush a toilet or any psychology books (which in my sentiments, are the same). I’m not that bored, thank you very much!
Reading historical fiction gives me insight to a place that I might never have been before. It gives me a chance to eavesdrop on people that will never know that I’ve entered the room. How many times, I’ve wanted to be a fly on the wall in the room and couldn’t be. This way, it is legal and even welcomed.
These are just a few of my faves…
Lowlands of Scotland Series by Liz Curtis Higgs
(This is probably my most fave reads of all time.) I liked it so much – I called the author and had a sweet chat with her. It was written with a Scottish undertone so it makes you feel like you are reading in another language.
With an Everlasting love by Kay Arthur
This is a really fast read. Guys even like this one.
Stephen Biesty’s Incredible Body by Richard Platt
This book explains and shows how the body works in major detail. My kids love it and even took it to our eye doctor to show her. Very fascinating!!!
