I cleaned off my side table and swapped out the old books for a fresh pile. Ahh. Just that little change has made a big difference to my spirits.
Here’s my TBR pile:
Several homeschooling books: Homeschooling for Excellence by David and Micki Colfax, Teaching Primaries by Ruth Beechik, Exploring Landscape Art With Children by Gladys S. Blizzard
Fiction: Carol Berg’s Flesh and Spirit, fantasy anthology inspired by little-used cultures and historical periods (Ages of Wonder), Shades of Grey by Jasper Fforde (picked up because I enjoyed The Eyre Affair way back when).
Other non-fiction: Guns, Germs and Steel by Jared Diamond (this will make me smart!) and Spiritual Depression by Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones (been meaning to read it for years, got into the first chapter, and really enjoying it—underlining, drawing arrows, scribbling notes).
Oh, I think Walter Isaacson’s Benjamin Franklin biography is still lurking in there somewhere, too.
In other exciting news (aren’t you all just on the edge of you seats?), David powered through Quartz and his marked-up version landed in my Inbox last night. So, yay for him and now I can stop this endless dithering, thank-you-very-much!
