What are you reading?

I am currently reading between three and five books at the same time. I know that may seem unreasonable to those of you who read one at a time, but it’s how I do things. I have linked the titles to amazon.com for the curious.

The books are…

Strong Curves

The Art of Non-Conformity

The Joy of Unschooling

And the fourth is something I rotate back and forth between, usually audiobooks…

A Year of Magical Thinking

Last Child in the Woods

As a family, we are reading Farmer Boy from the Little House on the Prairie series.

(Since we’re living in such a small space, I did blog about what we do for books here.)

Throughout a given year, I tend to gravitate toward biographies. My top three biographies are: UnBroken, The First Lady of the Confederacy, and Yes, Please.

UnBroken is undoubtedly the best written biography that I have ever read. I was captivated from the first page. With historical accuracy and deep insight, this book reads like a novel.

While scouting through the library last year, I randomly selected The First Lady of the Confederacy from a group of Civil War era bios. The life of Varina Davis is far from what I anticipated, and the misguidance of my preconceived notion of her is what made me adore this book.

Yes, Please is technically an autobiography, excuse my lumping it together with bios, but for the sake of not really caring to be too accurate, I don’t care. The book is hilarious just like its author.

This year I’m attempting to read other books that spark my creativity; I may even include some fiction if I can find something that captures my attention.

What are you reading? What are your favorites?

I’d love to hear some suggestions from you, dear readers.

Yours Truly,

Marlie
