WWW Wednesday

• What are you currently reading?
I have current bookmarks in these:
Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard. I can't say I knew a lot about President Garfield or his assassination before reading this but this book is well written and completely fascinating.
The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. I have to say that this one is challenging me and my perceptions of what a "prayer life" should be. I can't say I've agreed with everything I've read, but then, I can rarely say that. I do think the author has an unfortunate propensity for writing in cliches and "motivational poster speak".
A Complaint Free World by Will Bowen. (I'm reading an older edition than the one I've linked to on Amazon.) So far, so good, although I'm not very far in and the concept of wearing a bracelet to improve my life seems pretty gimmicky at this point.
Stained Glass Hearts by Patsy Clairmont. And I've just realized that I must be working on a lot of spiritual growth right now, judging from my current reading list.

• What did you recently finish reading?
I recently finished this non-fiction:
The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers by Meg Meeker. I highly recommend this for all my Mom friends. My only complaint is that Meeker was not more specific when describing how important "faith" and "hope" are, although I understand that she was not writing this book specifically for Christians. That one (minor) drawback aside, I recommend this to any mom currently in the trenches of motherhood (and even for those of you who have primarily grown children).

And before that, I finished this novel:
The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey, which I talked about in this blog post.

• What do you think you’ll read next?
Either a mystery or one of the non-fiction books that has gotten pushed to the bottom of my stack. Or, I should say, one of my stacks. I have a few going now.

So many books, so little time.

I hope to read The Daughter of Time soon. "So many books, so little time" is SO true!

I haven't heard of any of these! I hope that you are enjoying them.

I have had The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers on my to-read list for a long time now. I'm so glad to hear it's good!
