This year I’m going to attempt to read widely by using the 5×5 reading challenge put out by the Schole Sisters. You choose 5 categories and read 5 books in each category over the year. My categories are: American Lit, Theology, Brain & Habits, Barb Raveling books, & “For Sarah.”
I’m going to be teaching American Lit this year and between the syllabus (400+ pages) and the books, I’ll be very busy reading!
One THICK book and 4 thin books will fill this category.
Brain and Habits~
I’ve read Getting Things Done before, but have slacked off, so that’s my first read this year to help me keep on top of all my other goals.
Barb Raveling Books~
I have 5 books from Barb Raveling to help with weight loss and just renewing my mind in general. I’ve gone through two before, but will go through those again and finish the new ones. She is so practical and helpful. You can find all of her books here or visit her website for all kinds of great information on renewing your mind here.
I only have three in this category so far, so I have room for two more. This is a special category of books I want to give to my sweet daughter-in-law. I read them first, underline, highlight, and add notes to them and then give them to her to do the same. Maybe someday she’ll pass them along to her daughter.
So that’s my 5×5 Reading Challenge this year. I’ll keep you updated monthly with how I’m progressing. I’m hoping to continue my Reading Notebook as I go and will share that also. What are you reading? I’d love to hear below!
