Today I will finish my favorite book for the eighth time. It’s called The Book of Mormon. I set a goal to read it in thirty days with Hannie B and once again I learned more about myself, my Savior Jesus Christ and my loving Heavenly Father than I could from reading pretty much any other book. It’s been a humbling experience.
Now I have a stack of other books waiting in the wings to be read. Some are religious in nature, others are New York Times Bestsellers, and others are classics. I’ve already started The Night Circus, so it’ll be up first. I’m most excited to pour over the pages of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes, but I imagine that will be a bit by bit sort of read since it’s made up of many short stories and is one thousand pages long.
Were on a second snow day out from school due to another big storm hitting yesterday, so I think I have a perfect excuse to curl up with a good book. Oh, and that’s thirteen snow days so far this winter, just in case you were wondering. Instead of letting my children turn into giant brainless lumps of mush, I’m making them read too. Big C is reading The Lord Of The Flies, Hannie B is reading Cress and RedDog is reading Wonder. Everybody gets to take turnes reading library books to Owlie.
