Thanks to Prabhat, of Dancing with Mosquitos, for introducing me to, and encouraging me, to do it – Recycled Book Reading Challenge!

The gist: Read what you have on your shelf…I guess that pile of library books will need to thin?

My dozen are books my children loved but I haven’t read, books given to me that I haven’t read, and {*GASP!*} books loaned to me that I haven’t read — oh, and a few I bought it but haven’t read it yet πŸ˜‰

If you would like to be a part of it you can see the guidelines here- Recycled Book Reading Challenge

What books on your shelf are waiting to be read?

  1. Harry Potter is great and so is A wrinkle in Time. I swear I read All creatures great and small long ago but I can’t recall. Good luck with Great Expectations. I hated it both times I studied it, but I do hope you find it better.

    1. My children have been on me to read the Harry Potter series, they love them, and A Wrinkle in Time is on our reading list {and I’ve yet to read it!}. I like Dickens, but it’s been years since I’ve read him πŸ˜‰

  2. Wonderful! I admire that pic you have taken! Looks Classy! I am glad you could compile the list! Happy reading! You have a book there by CS Lewis, I see! I have often encountered his quotes, and found them quite contemplative! That book, I would be curious to read your views about. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you for the inspiration and kind words. Truth be told, I have a dozen other nonfiction books yet unread, but I thought I should push myself to read more fiction {although several nonfiction made it into the pile since I’ve been lent them on recommendation of their owners!}. I haven’t taken as much time to read since I restarted my blog and am teaching a class this quarter, on top of homeschooling my children, being mom and wife, and looking at my almost complete novel…. I loved the Chronicles of Narnia by Lewis and happened upon this one at the reused book store this winter, it was $1.50 so I snapped it up. The picture creds – well, natural light I’ve found helps significantly with the Windows Phone images…but this one was posted on Instagram and I used the Pro-X filter when I posted πŸ˜‰ Thank you for your kind words!

      1. Hmm.. too many roles to play.. and time keeps flying! I feel pleased whenever I read the things you tell about homeschooling! Being a teacher is so much fun.You always stay young with young the kids! πŸ™‚

        I never checked out that CS Lewis is the one who wrote Narnia.. I had only seen his quotes! This came as a revelation for me! πŸ™‚

  3. I love the Harry Potter series. When I read it the first time I saluted the great imagination of Rowling. What a book! Loved this post, do take out time to spend with your best friends ie books. Love, Shivangi

    1. I had dismissed the Harry Potter craze as a YA thing, then my son insisted on watching the movies since he had finished the series. He thought they were just *ok*, I was enamored! So I’ve started reading them {they just keep getting squeezed out of time with my nonfiction reading!} πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by and hope to see if you have a Recycled Reads list πŸ™‚
