Reading List 6/15/16

books

In a previous post I mentioned that I am working my way through various books/novels.
I was asked how I keep up with them all.
On my E-reader, it’s easy to have all the books at my fingertips.
Each night I spend some time on each one, either reading a chapter, or just to a break in the storyline, bookmark it and move on to the next.
Somehow it works for me and I am always in the beginning, middle or end of some kind of reading enrichment.
I also take along paper/hardbound novels in the car and read either to my husband when he is driving or on my breaks when I am waiting on kids to pick up. I call these stolen moments and a lot can be accomplished in minutes at a time.

This is my current list:

Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert (recently finished but plan to go back to highlight the better parts)
An inspirational book on harnessing the creativity that shows up in our lives

Living Artfully by Sandra Magsamen A guide on ways to celebrate the meaningful moments of your life

Universal Laws by Jennifer O’Neill Explores 18 Laws of manifesting the life you want

Illustrated Dictionary of Dream Symbols by Dr. Joe Ibojie A biblical study on dream interpretation. I am not sure if the Kindle version does not support pictures or if there just isn’t any in this book. There are no illustrations in the E-reader format and so far at the halfway point, it is just biblical postulating and not much on dream interpretation.

Saved by Angels by Bruce Van Natta One man’s personal story on how God worked in his life.

40 Days to a Prosperous Soul by Cindy Trimm A daily devotional meant to be a companion book to the authors previous work. It was free and I am working through it. I did not read the previous book and am certain not to. This so far is just okay.

The Identity Switch by AJ Winters This book outline ways to change your thinking in order to change your life. While I am all for that, it has become quite wordy in order to state a simple method that baby steps are all it takes to experience success in your life.

Fred 2.0 by Mark Sanborn This is a great book. On ways to deliver extraordinary service in an utterly ordinary world and the benefits of going the extra mile. I think this is a second book, so I will definitely be checking out the original as time allows.

Jumpstart your Creativity by Shawn Doyle and Steven Rowell Another great book for utilizing ideas to open up your creative self.

The Life Organizer by Jennifer Louden A week by week guide to journaling and being mindful on personal needs. Tips, stories and prompts to help figure yourself out.

Skeleton’s Key by Stacy Green Fiction: Murder mystery Antebellum home, skeleton in the basement..great start to an unsolved mystery. It was a freebie download. I didn’t know it was book two in a trilogy but so far it is a stand alone mystery that doesn’t depend on the first book for background. The author is skilled at spinning a story and it is a great escape from the normal routine.

The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancy A monster hunting doctor and his 12 year old assistant are on the trail of a pack of inhuman foes. (This is only read in the car on short drives around the city but it is excellently written and makes me want to go places just to find out what happens next)

Life Makeovers by Cheryl Richardson A 52 week guide to making positive changes in your life.
This is the book that has prompted ,me to start this journey to change.

Until I made this list I had no idea how many books I was working my way through. Most of them are past the halfway mark but I am able to keep up and enjoy the ride.
What does your list look like?
