My reading list for summer has finally come together! There is something here for almost everyone, with no trashy content surprises.
(And here’s my recent list for preparedness, health and gardening books, too.)
Here are my top 3 reasons for reading:
1.) Brain Enhancer– Our mind is our central processor – the factory where all our hopes and dreams are formed. Proper investment is never wasted. Our brain, once stretched (figuratively speaking), may never return to its original capacity.
2.) Leadership Factor – I believe that great leaders are great readers. The more you read and apply what you read in your life, the better you lead.
3.) Learning from the Best– Through reading, I get to pick the brains of people whom I may never meet in person like my favorite authors.
Happy book choosing and reading, readers. I had fun putting my list together. I’m wishing for even more fun knocking them off my list, some again!

List to Read (or Listen to) Again!
Les Miserables (Radio Theatre) Audio CD by
The Cross and the Switchblade, by David Wilkerson
Jane Eyre, by Bronte (unabridged) on audio for full richness of the beauty of the gospel
The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness, by Dave Ramsey
For Family listening time: Robinson Crusoe Audio CD, Unabridged. Such very real struggles with which even young (5-8 yo) children can identify. A favorite book for many years. The vocabulary is daunting which makes audio such a blessing (let’s NOT lose daunting words!). The gospel is rich, rich, rich in this, but never in anyway sentimental.
Quest For Meekness and Quietness of Spirit, by Matthew Henry
