Books I Have Read

I thought it might be interesting to post a partial list of the book that I have read. I know I like to see what others have read. I often have wished that I had kept a log of all that I have read. More than that I wish I could remember everything I have read. Some people seem to be able to read something and remember it forever, not me?? This list is composed mostly of things I have read just since I have been married. I read some growing up but I was not an avid reader. I now love to read and never feel like I have enough time to read.

I use to read some fiction, but I don’t read fiction much anymore. I came to a place where I asked myself why would I read fiction when non-fiction is just as, if not more, exciting. When I read I want it to be profitable. I am not necessarily against reading for leisure but I am convinced that should be the exception instead of the rule. I have read a good number of westerns (Louis Lamour [that may not be spelled right]).

I am not one who reads my Bible through every year. I have a certain admiration for those who do but it is just not something that I have ever felt compelled to do. I do read my Bible most every day. For many years now I have read a chapter in Proverbs everyday. I read some in the New Testament and in the Old Testament most days. I have no idea how many times I have read the Bible because of the way I go about it. It is safe to say I have read it several times and large portions of it I have read numerous times. I have certainly read it more times than any other book.

The list is a little long but I think you can browse through the list and as a result have a little better understanding of who I am.

Proverbs 13:20 says, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise . . . .” I have learned that I have the opportunity to walk with wise men through books, as well as in real life.

I hope that some of you may find this a little interesting. I will give the name of the book and the author’s last name.
