I’m a huge fan of reading books in more than one genre at a time. It stimulates my thinking because different things require different types of thought, and it’s always fascinating to see how the ideas in one genre work with or conflict with ideas in another genre. And if you ever find yourself spending a couple of weeks on the couch, it does give a bit of variety to your day (personal experience!). Since I have reviews scheduled well ahead right now, you might not see the longer reviews for a while, but here is the twitterature version (that is, short and casual). Thanks to Modern Mrs. Darcy for hosting the Twitterature roundup.
My Current Bedrest Reading Stack:
The One World Schoolhouse, by Salman Khan
The founder of The Khan Academy turns education on its head in a thought-provoking and inspiring new model for learning–kind of like applying the best of homeschooling to a broader, global setting. #brilliant #math
A Teaspoon of Earth and Sea, by Dina Nayeri
Gorgeous and compelling novel of family, identity, and growing up set in Iran. #beautiful #literaryfiction
The 4 a.m. Breakthrough, by Brian Kiteley
Helpful tips on writing plus unconventional writing exercises, because one of these days I will finish re-writing the novel. #helpful #amwriting
Apologetics to the Glory of God, by John Frame
A dense, but worthwhile examination of “the variety and richness…of how Christians give a reason for their hope” to others, I’m reading this book slowly but finding it helpful. #theology #illuminating
The 7 Experiment, by Jen Hatmaker
I’m going through the group study version of Hatmaker’s awesome book 7 with an online group, and being challenged to think about consumerism and fasting in new ways. #funny #convicting
The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order, by God, but arranged by someone else
I am loving how this Bible intersperses Psalms with David’s life in the sections I’m reading now, and getting a lot out of reading the Bible daily with this approach. #Word
What are you reading these days?
