Read a good book lately?

One of my New Years Resolutions is to read more... at LEAST 2 books a month...

So I started compiling a list of books to read - I have a TON of books that are sitting on my bookshelf that I have never read, as well as some that I've been wanting to read... and then I decided to join the church book club, so that will keep me busy as well...

Books on My List: (BOLD - Currently Reading; Purple - I finished it!)

Books on my bookcase I REALLY want to read:
  • The Goose Girl - Shannon Hale
  • Fishers of Men - Gerald N. Lund
  • 101 Powerful Promises from Latter-day Prophets - Wayne Brickey
  • God Wants a Powerful People - Sheri Dew
  • Daughters of God - S. Michael Wilcox
  • If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn't Be Hard - Sheri Dew

  • How to Win Friends and Influence People - Dale Carnegie
  • Saving Kristen - Jack Weyland

Other Books I'd Like To Read:

  • Overcoming Under Earning - Barbara Stanny
  • The Undaunted - Gerald N. Lund
  • The Great and The Terrible Series (vol. 1-6) - Chris Stewart

I'm hoping to write book reviews (mainly for myself since my memory is AWFUL) but then again... I failed Literature in 7th grade with a 23% because I HATED to write book reports... so we'll see how that goes! lol
