Books on my sidetable!

I have always been a bit of a bookworm, definitely a trait that is helpful when homeschooling.  On the little stool beside my bed that I call my sidetable is quite a large pile of books.  Some finished, some part way through and others not yet started.

Today these are in my pile (tomorrow they may be on the floor or back on the shelves).

  • The Second Mrs Gioconda - A Sonlight World History Core book about Leonardo da Vinci
  • Small Changes for a Better Life by Elizabeth George (a favourite author, her others are my go to books for short bursts of inspiration)
  • 5 Minute Retreats for Women by Sue Augustine (another go to book for a short burst of inspiration)
  • The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren (still haven't really fully read this, but keep trying)
  • Time Management from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern (lots of repeating for me but a different perspective to think about how my children work best)
  • Prince Caspian by CS Lewis (read aloud for the children)
  • 12 Steps to Becoming a More Organized Woman by Lane P Jordan (a different take on the Proverbs 31 Woman than what Elizabeth George does in her books)
  • Better Late than Early by Raymond and Dorothy Moore
  • More Hours in My day by Emilie Barnes (easier to read than her quick tip books)
  • Family, The Vital Factor (subtitled The Key to Society's Survival) by Moira Eastman (an Australian book published in 1989 and has already had several passages underlined and notes made in the margins, I don't usually write in books but this is good, too good for me to think about someone else wanting to read it without margin scribbles)
Now if only I could find the notebook I usually write quotes in and my thoughts about them.  Oh well, at least my filing cabinet is starting to look more cheerful as I use coloured files.  One thing at a time in the world of organising is about all I can handle.  The notebook will turn up when it is ready. ;-)

Best wishes
Jen

  1. I googled Mrs Gioconda. It looks interesting. I usually have at least one novel and maybe some other titles on the go. Since moving I have yeat to visit the library so I am a little behind. I hope you are going well otherwise?
