Book Juggling: Or Reading Little Bits of This and That for Eternity

Per usual, I am reading multiple books for a gazillion years each. This doesn’t really bother me as much as it did in years past. I used to be strictly a one-book-at-a-time reader, there was a goal to reach, and I was going to get there come hell or high water. Maybe I’ve mellowed? Maybe it’s a side effect of having SO many hobbies. I’m much more chill about my reading these days. These are the books it’s going to take me (potentially) forever to get through because I’m a dip-in-and-outer.

You Are Free: Be Who You Already Are by Rebekah Lyons – I’d say I’ve spent a significant amount of my life putting limits on myself that are completely constructed by me. This is something I’ve been dealing with, examining, ruminating over here lately in an effort NOT TO DO IT. This book has been a great push to shuck off fear and fully BE. I’ll have a post coming up on this, from a faith perspective, on my other blog, Rowdy and Redeemed (will link when it posts).

Dreams and Nightmares: I Fled Alone to the United States When I was Fourteen by Liliana Velasquez – I mentioned this one in my previous post about #ThankfullyReading. I won’t be reading it too much longer since the final class discussion is Friday, but I’m dragging this one out a bit. I do that with books I’m enjoying. While this nonfiction account is not as polished as some others that come out of large publishing houses, I’m really down for its authenticity and candor. It’s made for a great discussion for my freshman composition classes, and I think it’s approachable for them and helps build an appreciation for everyday folks writing and sharing their writing.

CSB Study Bible – I’m still working through my project of writing the New Testament. I haven’t posted about it lately because it’s gonna take me FOREVER to get through Luke (I’m on chapter 5), but while I was using a She Reads Truth Bible in the CSB translation, it was too much to lug around. I’ve switched over to this digital CSB Study Bible so I can just copy off my Kindle! Why didn’t I do that sooner?

This is it for now, friends. What are you lingering over?
