My Reading List for 2019
I’m a reader. Ever since 6th grade and Miss Banks’ class when I discovered Sweet Valley High. Someone tell me they do remember the twins!
Anyhow, I love reading but over the last few years the type of content I read has changed dramatically. I’ve read far fewer books than normal and more articles, biz trainings, and digital course content.
Oh, and email.
Good grief, the volume of email I read borders on insane.
This year, I want to be intentional about reading more books. After following my friend Leigh Ann’s reading adventures in 2018 (she read 70 books), I was inspired to accept her book reading challenge in 2019. I’ve tweaked some of the categories and personalized it, and am really excited about what made it on my final list!
If you’d like to read more in 2019, I encourage you to check out Leigh Ann’s book reading challenge for free printables to get started!
Without further ado, here is my book list for 2019:

Good luck with your goals for reading. Yes, I remember Elizabeth and Jessica from “Sweet Valley High”. I am a twin so I would remember fellow twins. Wishing you and yours a blessed ad happy 2019.

I love to read too! I have 3 books I have recently read or listened to that were so thought provoking. Here are the titles of the books:
When Helping Hurts, by Brian Fikkert & Steve Corbett
The Insanity of God, by Nip Ripken, Gregg Lewis
The Insanity of Obedience, by Nip Ripken, Barry Stricker
Yes! Those books are what started my passion for reading! I had totally forgotten about them. I love the idea of a reading challenge and I love doing everything for a purpose, so i am excited to get started.
A recent biography that I would recommend is “When Breath Becomes Air” by Paul Kalanithi and a another great book is “The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do” by Charles Duhigg.
My summer reading list:
Discerner by James Goll
Prayers That Rout Demons & Break Curses by John Eckhardt
33 Degrees of Deception by Tom C. McKinney
Things have been very hectic lately but praying they are calming down now.
