2. "Change Your Words Change Your Life" (Joyce Meyer)
3. "100 Ways to Simplify Your Life" (Joyce Meyer)
4. "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" (Ransom Riggs)
5. OH, and I must not forget my book on tape that I am listening to while I walk, "The Time Traveler's Wife"(Audrey Niffenegger).
Quite a variety there, huh? Well, I don't do this often, read this many books at one time, but here is how it all happened...
I always try to have an inspirational book on my bedside table that I am reading to start or end my day with and Joyce Meyer is one of my favorite authors. Her life story is inspirational to me. Therefore, I picked up, "Change Your Words Change Your Life" one day and began to read it. I predicted this book would be especially relevant to me since I am a big believer in positive thoughts, words and deeds. And I can truly say that I enjoy garnering Joyce's words of wisdom concerning these virtues. This type of book, I always read a print copy whereas most of my other books I read of my Kindle.
On to the next book that I ran across while picking up my medicine at Sam's (great place to find books!). As I said, I simply cannot resist reading books written by Joyce Meyer, so when I happened upon, "100 Ways to Simplify Your Life", it was bought! This is a great little book to have since the "100 Ways" can be read daily. Here is an example of how each "way" begins: Title, "Get Your Mind Off Yourself. It is then followed by a quote:"A man is called selfish not for pursuing his own good, but for neglecting his neighbor's.", a scripture: "And Jesus called (to Him) the throng with His disciples and said to them, If anyone intends to come after Me, let him deny himself (forget, ignore, disown, and lose sight of himself and his own interests) and take up his cross (Mark 8:34), and then a passage by Joyce that talks a little bit about this subject. Super inspirational book for getting one's priorities straight!
Finally, on to the last book that I am "listening" to, "The Time Traveler's Wife", written by, Audrey Niffenegger. I decided that since the weather has turned so nice and warm here, I would begin to do some of my walking at a park in town. That is when I went onto my i-tunes app on my i-phone and began looking through the audio books. I had actually put this book on my Kindle a long time ago, but never read it and thought this would be a good one to listen to while getting my cardio in. It is a very interesting book, with the main character, Henry, traveling back and forth through time. The part that I think is particularly interesting is when Henry's adult self watches his infant or child self. Wouldn't that be sort of neat to do?
So, now you know how it all happened...me reading FIVE books at one time. I suppose I really took that saying the heart, "SO MANY BOOKS...SO LITTLE TIME"!
