What Are You Reading-- New Year Edition

I haven't put this feature on my blog since Benjamin was born. We've been reading as much as ever, but I've just not taken the time to share my list. I figured the new year was a good time to get back into the habit. So without further ado, here is what I'm reading:

The Bible: I'm currently reading through the New Testament starting with Matthew. Brian and I are doing it together to keep each other accountable.

The Shaping of a Christian Family by Elisabeth Elliot: This is a great book but very meaty so I'm reading just one chapter a day to allow time for absorption.

At Home in North Branch by Arleta Richardson: one of the novels in the Grandma's Attic series

John Billington: Friend of Squanto by Clyde Robert Bulla: This a read-aloud with the kids, a carry-over from our study of the Pilgrims.

Now We Are Six by A. A. Milne: This is also a read-aloud with the kids. We read Milne's first book of poetry this summer, but thought this one was appropriate now that Gavin is six! We read one or two poems at a time.

Now it is your turn! What are you reading? What are you reading to your kids? What are your reading in your personal devotions? What are you reading for fun? What magazine do you pick up in your spare time?

Don't forget to check out the bookshelf in my sidebar where I periodically add some of the best books our family is reading!
