Summer reading list...

What is it about summer and fall that makes me want to read...a lot?!   So I have been thinking I want to compile a list for this summer of what I want to read (myself) and what I want to read aloud, I wanted to share it and hope you'll share your ideas with me :)

My reading list :
Emily of New Mon series (finish)
The South Beach Diet Supercharged - I have lost thirty pounds (yay!) in the past two years (really didn't start working hard at it until last fall (BTW love, love, love the LoseIt App), I have five to ten more I would like to lose
The Peace Maker by Ken Sande
Amy Harmon's new book (due out June 10th)
A Million Little Ways  by Emily Freeman
Kisses from Katie
Through my Bible in 90 days again
And finish writing book #2 (not technically reading...but it kinda is since I have to read and re-read what I write)

My Read Aloud List:
Beatrix Potter
Little House on the Prairie series
Anne of Green Gables series
American Girl Books (audio)
The Hobbit
Where the Red Fern Grows

What are you hoping to read this summer?  Here is wishing you many lovely, sun-drunk afternoons spent under a dappled tree somewhere lost in a magical world.

Happy Mother's Day

I hope that today is a day of joy for all moms, a day of comfort for those grieving, a day of peace for those that live with the bitterness of regret, and a day of rest for those moms who are knee deep in the trenches.
