Get a list of book suggestions from your friends. From those suggestions choose between five and ten books that you will read in 2013. Make a list of the books that you will read and a few alternates.
And the other instructions can be found on Jane's site.
Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
Anne of Avonlea (these two with Maggie)
Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Love Divine by Alan Kornacki
Mitford's Out to Canaan by Jan Karon
Christ Have Mercy by Matt Harrison
The list that someone else made for me:
Lutheran Catechesis by Bender
Old Testament Catechesis by Bender
New Testament Catechesis by Bender
Bible Stories for Daily Prayer by Fabrizius
Kristin Lavransdatter by Sigrid Undset
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Luther, the Reformer by James Kittelson
The Right to Be Wrong by Seamus Hasson
On Being a Theologian of the Cross by Forde
Luther on Vocation by Wingren
Well, I've never before set up a reading challenge for myself. Many of my friends do so annually. I am jealous. But Jane has devised a teeny-tiny reading challenge (possibly just to encourage me, because she loves me). I may not be up to the challenge; I may fail. BUT I have a shot at it -- unlike most reading challenges which are entirely out of the realm of possibility. Unless I want to quit homeschooling, quit cooking, quit cleaning, quit choir, quit gardening, and quit editing. And I don't wanna quit those things. So Mini Reading Challenge, here I come!
