Summer was glorious, but here we are at the end of August. That means BACK TO SCHOOL. It seems that audiobooks are the way to go as the drives to school and home again begin. I’ve found that while audiobooks how I am mostly reading, getting the book version through kindle is how I take notes and copy down quotes. Downloading the overdrive app to my phone has made this pretty easy!
This month I read:
The Queen of Katwe by Tim Crothers – I was given a copy of the book, but listened to the audio version while traveling earlier in the month. This was a challenging book to read, and even more, a difficult book for me to review. I suppose that is why I haven’t finished my review. I know the movie is coming out soon, and plan to see if it helps me understand the struggle I have with the book.
You Smile When You Show Me Grace by Michelle Thooft – an adoption story that has an encouraging message on grace for anyone.
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking by Susan Cain – This book, I’ve had on my audible app for over a year, and I finally started it last month. It was slow going for the first 1/2 of the book, but in later chapters I found information that is increasing my understanding of my children’s different personalities, and how to better relate to each of them. This is the first book I downloaded via overdrive to kindle to take notes!
Unashamed by Christine Caine – another powerful message from Christine Caine, founder of A21 Campaign.
While I only finished 4 books this month, I have way too many on my “currently reading” list/pile. My plan for September is to finish all of the currently reading titles and be ready to start fresh with some cozy reads for autumn. How about you? What are you reading these days?
