Reading of late

I've read some fascinating stuff lately. In my mind, where I make notes of things I don't want to forget, I have told myself that I need to blog about the last seven books I've read. Now I can't remember what the last two are. Note to self: Taking notes in my head is not the same as actually taking notes. 

Now I need to actually write that down...

Well, Susan Cain is a genius, that's just all there is to it. If you are an introvert, or if one of your children is an introvert, or if you accidentally married an introvert you should read this book. Finally, someone who gets it (translation: me)! And all these years I just thought I was a snob....
Believing God is the latest Beth Moore that I have completed. I've now officially done all of her studies. I love them because they have daily homework. I'm also a nerd.

Krakauer's latest book in un. Real. Like, you are actually genuinely hoping that it's fiction. But, unfortunately for women, it's not.
Raise your hand if you read Still Alice and loved it. {hand raised}. This is Genova's book about Huntington's Disease. Like Alice, it's sad and eye opening and good.

My friend, Beth, told me to read this book. And lemmetellya, if Beth thinks a book is good, it's really, really good. And this one is. It was one of those that required me to neglect my children for a day or two.

 In other news, the kids loved camp:

Believing God is probably my favorite Beth Moore study!
