Books


Do you like books?  I love books.  Books have taken over my bedroom,  with the overflow on the floor, the dresser, or on the headboard.

How many books do you read at a time?  I am a multiple book person, always having to have multiple books I’m reading.  I try to keep one book from different categories, so not having two history or two fiction books going simultaneously, but it doesn’t always stay that way. 🙂

So here is a list of the books I’m either reading, should be reading, or have a bookmark in.

“Household Cleaning” – I have been interested in using more natural products to clean with,  and this book has many ideas of things to use, as well as lists of what chemicals are usually in different cleaners, and how those chemicals are harmful to you and the environment.

“Ben-Hur” – I’ve really been enjoying this, and am about 1/3 of the way through it.  It has been pushed out if the way a bit for the above book, but I should be working on it again soon.

“The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War” – Since I just studied the Civil War in history, I have been reading books about the Civil War.  I appreciated the bios on some of the generals during the war, as it ahs helped me keep them somewhat straight – at least who is on what side.

I also just finished reading “Productive Christians in an age of Guilt Manipulators” by David Chilton.  It was assigned for our economics course that we were doing together.  It was very good.  I am now going to be reading “Basic Economics.”

Have you read any of these books?  If so, did you like them?  What are you reading right now?

    1. Caitlin,
      I’ve read both Jeff Mclean: His Courtship and Elsie’s womanhood. I especially enjoyed the courtship series. I named one of my cats Elsie after Elsie Dinsmore. How is Charcoal Remedies? It sounds interesting.

  1. Ah! I do that too! And I wish I wouldn’t. I just always find another interesting book and start reading it, when I really should be finishing the multiple ones I’m in the middle of.

    I have not read any of the books you’re reading, but we have Ben-Hur and The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War and they are on my to-read list, which is long and only gets longer. 🙂

    I’m currently in the middle of The Life and Letters of Robert Lewis Dabney, a Lord Peter Wimsey book, An Eschatology of Victory, and the SAS Survival Handbook.
