J has been a reading machine lately. (Hooray!) Laura asked me the other day how much time I spend reading. It's only been lately that I've had teh attention span to do more than look at pics in a magazine.

Btw, I'm really happy to see you here. *mush, mush* And I think you'd like "The Last Samurai" by Helen Dewitt. It's not the same "The Last Samurai" as the current Tom Cruise movie.

Did you like "Where the Heart is"? I have had it on my shelf for a long time (picked it up at a garage sale), trying to decide if I want to read it.

My list would be much shorter than yours. I'm a stage right now where I don't have nearly enough time to read.


I loved these:
"Families Where Grace is in Place" Jeff VanVonderen
"Relational Parenting" Ross Campbell

I'm reading "Heartfelt Discipline" now, too. It's fun to see what you're reading!

I've -just- gotten to the point where I have enough attention span to read something longer than a magazine article. For a long time, I could only look at pictures in a magazine--just couldn't even focus on reading!

I think it's the cold and snow that has facilitated reading so much in January.

I was on the verge of tears several times throughout "Where The Heart Is" and it was very good in many respects. There is also one section that is very, very difficult to read (related to the abuse of children), and so I'm not sure I want to recommend the book. But the main characters were just so nurturing and in many ways it was a wonderful read.

I -just- finished "Families Where Grace is in Place." It's been a couple of years since I read any books related to parenting, and so it was refreshing to read such encouraging ones. Especially since some of the main points were similar to conclusions I'd reached, apart from any book. *grin* That's validating. I've also asked Hubby to read them--he has a much better B.S. detector than I do. I told him some things that were yellow flags when I read them, but I like getting his feedback, too.

I'd be interested in discussing these books we've both been reading recently--once our computer is home and healthy.

Oh - great! More book lists. Looking forward to seeing more of what you read this year!
