Book Corner – Reading Update

on December 26, 2012

Good Reads by Jon Gordon

So here we are with 2013 just around the corner.  At the start of 2012 I set the personal goal of reading 25 books.   Happy to say, I read 50 books in addition to my daily Bible Reading and Bible study aids. Oh, and let’s not forget all the books that I read to my children.

The following two books I read in September/October.  Absolutely wonderful books!

“Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon a Project, Read Samuel Johnson, and My Other Experiments in the Practice of Everyday Life”
~ Gretchen Rubin

“Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead”
~ Brene Brown

If you haven’t had the opportunity to read any of the books by Gretchen Rubin and Brene Brown I highly recommend you do.
