Which led me to search for Christian suspense novels and authors. I was surprised to realize we have some available in our church library (I know because I am now the librarian there and I remembered a couple of the names from when I was reorganizing). I plan on taking out the series by Terri Blackstock for starters.
I then happened across a link for the 2010 100+ Reading Challenge. At first I thought this would be crazy to attempt, seeing as it is already May. However, anything that has been read this year counts, soooo..... all I have to do is remember all those books I have read already this year and the task will not appear so unsurmountable. Either way, I am looking forward to the challenge.
This evening, as I was hopping around other's blogs who are involved in these challenges, I found myself intrigued once again and tempted to sign up for another reading challenge. Deborah, over at Books, Movies and Chinese Food has a Nancy Drew challenge. The goal for this challenge is to read the "yellow spine" edition of the books, starting with book #1 and ending with #56. These are the ones I fell in love with as a kid and I have wanted to reread them for a while now. I would also love if my 13 year old daughter would read along with me. One can only hope. I already have several on hold at the library!
So along with the Nancy Drew challenge and the Thriller/Suspense Challenge, I will be reading my books on homeschooling, unschooling, Montessori etc, (as I always have 2-3 books going at one time) so I think the 100+ challenge is definitely doable.
Stayed tuned for my normal Tot School/Preschool Corner post, we have concluded U and started our Creation lapbooks.
Here is the link to the post with all the books I have read, I will add to this as I go.
