Booking It in October

[4]It’s amazing to me that we started booking it ten months ago [5].

Where did the year go?

I hope that you’ve found some good reads thanks to this virtual book club. I know we have. Thanks to Carrie [6], our family enjoyed The Search for Delicious [7], a book I had never even heard of. The kids still talk about it!

And if it hadn’t been for Chandy’s review of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society [8] and comments from the rest of you, I might have missed out on the best novel I’ve read in a very long time.

This past month, however, I finished reading the best book ever written.

[9]Yes, ma’am, I finished my goal of reading through the Bible [10]. I didn’t do it 90 days, but I did finish reading in 100. As I mentioned before, my purpose wasn’t to rush or be in a hurry. But, I did want to be purposeful in my reading.

In retrospect, I think the pace of 12 pages a day is very doable. I know, it sounds like a lot. But, really, it took about 45 minutes a day.

Things got a little crazy when I got behind and then spent a few hours at a time catching up. That wasn’t quite so doable. But, it was good, nonetheless. My friend Amy has orchestrated this online Bible reading book [11] twice this year and she’ll be doing it again. It’s quite an undertaking and I’m so thankful for her constant support and encouragement not to give up.

I may just do it again. :)

What about you? Read any good books lately?
