As I began making a list of the books I’d like to read this year, I tried to balance the type of books I’m reading. I want to focus on those that will help me grow spiritually, as a wife, as a mother, and as a person.
I certainly plan to read more than these twenty books. I tend to peruse the books on the “new non-fiction” shelves at the library and look for recommendations from other bloggers. You’ll also note that there are no fiction titles included, but I’m sure I’ll be reading those from time to time.
Here’s the list of books I plan to read in 2013. A couple of them are books that I’m reading for the second or third time.
