These last two months are the reason that I only chose a few books for my list.  Inevitably I buy something for free or dirt cheap on my Kindle, and it’s almost always an old friend that I haven’t read in a year or more.  SO I just read, read, read but none of the books are on my list!  I read 16 books in March and April and only one was on the list!!  Oh well.  Ironically this is also the reason that I have the list in the first place – so that I will be more intentional about using my reading to grow.  That being said, I promise to try to buckle down in May and read at least one book off of the actual reading list 🙂

  10. Not yet chosen: I want to read a brief history of the world type of book before we start homeschooling in the fall.  I find that my personal education is quite muddled in this area and would like to take steps to correct that before I’m trying to teach my sons.  Suggestions?
