This year, I was finally able to start reading for enjoyment again. Baby D has been a fairly demanding baby, and I hadn't had much time before to do much of anything. This year, I read 22 books (including the chapter read alouds to Miss Dainty.) (At least, that's what I kept track of, there might be more.)
My favorite read aloud with Miss Dainty was: James Herriot's Treasury for Children. This was such a great and heartwarming read. The stories were wonderful and the illustrations were beautiful. Miss Dainty really enjoyed each and every story.
The Divine Mentor by Wayne Cordeiro. Absolutely my favorite by far. I did not do the SOAP journal the entire year like I had wanted, but when I did, I learned so much, and really felt a transformation in my quiet time. My goal is to SOAP journal again through all of 2011.
Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. It was such an incredible and thought provoking book.
I didn't have a favorite fiction book. I didn't read too many since my reading time was limited, but I did read a few books/authors that were recommended to me. However, I was left disappointed. =(
I joined a few reading challenges for 2011, so I'm looking forward to getting started. =)
