I have two new books to read! I am excited as I love reading and it is probably my favourite thing to do. I love to learn too so reading books that introduce me to new topics and expand my knowledge are wonderful. I don't ever want to stop learning or to get stuck with a narrow view of the world.
At the moment I am trying to learn more about God's plan for women and their role in life. I have already made a fair start on learning about home making and various skills relating to that but I have a tendency to get caught up in the fluffy stuff and to spend less time than I need working on my character. Especially as I don't really have much Titus 2 guidance available to me! As much as I love the sewing and baking, the character development is just as important. Harder though and more thought and effort is needed. Plus a good deal of honesty in facing up to personality issues and being willing to change them.
This first book really appealed to me. I hadn't heard of it before seeing it on a book website but it sounded like a good read.
From the back of the book - " With humility and humor, Sara set out to immerse herself in all things domestic just to see if the Proverbs 31 woman could exist in the twenty-first century." I enjoy reading about other people and their experiences in life so this book combined two of my interests - people and home making.
The second book is probably more well known. I had heard of it and read many mixed reviews. I thought it was high time that I read it myself and formed my own opinions about it.
From the back cover - "Somewhere over the passing years and changing culture, women have lost their way. This book is written to lead them back home." I think this should be an interesting book and I am hoping to learn from it. Flicking through it, I like how the book is set out and that so many letters from readers are included. I also want to find out just why it splits opinions so widely.
When I finish reading these books, whenever that will be, I plan on reviewing them on here. I am looking forward to that too. Almost like a book study from my school days although on slightly different topics!
Have you read any books that you would recommend to others?
