Fall Reading Challenge: Takin' It Easy

OK, I'm all about reading. I'm a semi-retired English teacher, for pete's sake! I'm creating a second generation of little ones addicted to Scholastic Book Clubs. LOL

But, I also have two small children, two Bible classes, and a wicked case of unmedicated ADD. LOL

I've participated in Katrina's challenges before - some successfully, some not so much. So, with the upheaval of the last year, I'm back to baby steps.

It's not much but I'm committing to 2 nonfiction and 2 fiction.

A Walk With Jane Austin by Lori Smith

Grace Based Parenting by Dr. Tim Kimmel

House on Sugar Beach by Helene Cooper

Peace Like a River by Leif Enger

So, check in at Katrina's today to see what everyone else is gonna be tackling.

I only have 5 books on my list so you are in good company! Good luck on the challenge!

Well, even medicated because of ADD doesn't guarantee me finishing all of my books. Most of them are for review so I have to have them done anyhow. :)

Baby steps sounds just perfect.

Peace Like a River is one of those books that it seems everyone I know has read...except me! Glad there's another person out there who hasn't read it yet. :)

Thanks for being part of Fall Into Reading '09!

Loved grace based parenting. Very practical and I took lots of notes.

Hi Beth,
The book:
