Last week I decided that I want to get back into reading. I have a few books that I started reading in 2014 that I want to finish, as well as some new ones I want to get through. In high school I loved reading, you could rarely find me without a book. Somewhere along the lines I let reading slip away from me and I am determined to get that back.
My 2015 reading challenge is to read 15 books. I know it isn’t much to many people, but considering I haven’t completed a book in a few years it is challenging enough. If I find that I am reading more I will adjust my goal.
At the moment I am currently finishing up Deception Point by Dan Brown. After I finish Deception Point I would like to start reading Inferno, also by Dan Brown. I am also only 20 pages in to Silken Prey by John Sanford. I am very unsure about when I will get around to this one.
As I mentioned before I have ordered some books and am excited for them to arrive. These books are :
- A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, Book 1)
- The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity
- The Witness
- Gone Girl
- The Chronicles of Narnia
- The Complete Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales
Of these I think I would like to read Gone Girl and begin to re-read The Chronicles of Narnia soon after their arrival. Stay tuned to see how all this actually plays out.
Another one of my reading goals is to actually read the bible. I have started a few times in the past, but this is truly something that I want to do this year. I ordered an archaeological study bible, picked up a journal, and began a few days ago with the gospel of John. So far I feel it is going well and will give another update when I feel I am ready.
