Books I've Read So Far in 2012:
20 and Counting by Michelle & Jim Bob Duggar
Homeschooling - Opposing Viewpoints compiled by Noah Berlatsky
Home Learning, Year by Year by Rebecca Rupp (read the Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade chapters...all I need for now)

The Chronicle of Narnia by C.S. Lewis:
The Magician's Nephew
The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
Prince Caspian
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
The Horse and His Boy
The Silver Chair
The Last Battle
(Yes, again! We have them on CD in the car, and the kids LOVE them - and so do I! I think we may "read" them at the start of every year.)

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins:
The Hunger Games
Catching Fire
Mocking Jay
(Yes, again! I wanted to re-read the Hunger Games before the movie came out, but of course once you read one, it's not like you can just STOP...)


Currently Reading:
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende (Not sure I'm gonna make it any farther...I'm past the part where the 1st movie stops and have lost interest.)
Redeemed and Restored by Calvary Chapel Pastors' Wives (almost done!)
Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover (may not continue...I've read it before)
My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers (can you ever really be DONE with this book??)
The Birth Book by Dr. Sears (a refresher couldn't hurt...)


Planning to Read:
Shadows in Flight by Orson Scott Card (another Ender book)
Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons by Engelmann, Haddox, and Bruner (with Lily)
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp
Bringing Up Girls / Bringing Up Boys by James Dobson


I feel like I'm missing a few from 2011 and 2012 already...argh.

You know, there's a site called Goodreads.com that helps you keep track of what you've read, what you want to read, & what you're currently reading. It's a lot of fun & you can add widgets to your blog too!
