I am Thankful for a Chapter a Day
When I was in college my English professor encouraged me and all of her students to always be reading a chapter a day in a book that is meant for pure enjoyment. She told us that this would help to keep alive our love for reading. I do enjoy my "chapter a day." Today, on my thankfulness list, is the fact that I have one book I am reading and one waiting in the wings to be read. You see, I am sort of a fast reader and it is hard to keep myself "with a book." Often I will say to my husband, "well I am officially bookless!!"
Recently I have been reading books by Karen Kingsbury. I have enjoyed these fictional, Christian books. Three of her series' are linked to each other and I am on the third. I have read the "Redemption Series" and the "Firstborn Series" and now I am on the "Sunrise Series." There are only two of these books in print and then I will have to wait for the last two that are due out this spring. So...I am taking my time to read them or alas, I shall be bookless again!! ;)
I would love to hear recommendations for your favorite Christian fiction series. I fear I will soon be looking... But for now I am so thankful to have a book in my hands!
