In my "younger days" I would buy a book, read it, and then move on to the next one. Somewhere along the line I got tired of reading books. I had read so many homeschooling books and parenting books that I simply got tired of it. I quit reading for a quite a long time. If I tried I would get a chapter or two in and I got bored and quit. I've recently been inspired to read more and learn more once again. My Thomas Jefferson Education books are probably to blame for that!! Now I have a new problem! I have so many books I want to read that I can't finish a single one because I move on to a different one! So today I piled my current books up and oh my...I have ten books I'm working on!! Yikes! I wonder if I will ever finish a single one of them?! I do have to say though, right now I am focusing on only three of them. The "Stop Self-Sabotage" I am reading for work. I am also doing some training for work with phone calls with the author so this one is high priority and will get finished. But I am sure it is one I will be reading over and over again. It's been so great not only for my work life, but for my personal life. It's definitely making me face up to a lot of my personal issues. So good for me. The second book I am working through is Volume One of the Thomas Jefferson Edcuation book. Josh and I are both reading this at the same time. Trying to do a chapter at a time and discussing it. This is an educational theory that we are so excited about implementing in our household. I believe it will be life changing for us as a family. Very excited about that! The third book I am focusing on right now is "Simplicity Parenting". I read about it in an article online and shortly after that a friend posted that she had read it and enjoyed it. I just received it and started reading it a few days ago. I'm very excited about simplifying many things in my life. Especially for my kids. I want to create a calm, safe, and loving environment for them where they can enjoy being kids and learn naturally and not be stressed. I also want the low-stress part for myself. The rest of the books are kind of on the back burner for right now. I delve into a chapter here and there, but I am mostly focusing on the three I mentioned. I am not sure why my reading habits have changed so drastically. But I guess it's ok? How about you? What's on your nightstand right now? Do you read all the way through a book and then start another one? Or are you like me and you have a whole pile of them just waiting to be devoured??
