Sorry to get this post up a day late, but at least it is up. With the birth of Banana, I am sure happy that I got most of my reading done early in the month, but the post was a different story. Here is what I read and what I thought about it:
When a Mother Follows Christ by Katie Hoffman was a great short read. Honestly, I was expecting it to be a bit longer, but that is ok. I think you could probably read it over the course of a couple of hours. The main thing I took from this book was be who I want my kids to be. The last thing I want to be is a hypocrite. And when I discipline them, I need to make sure I myself am disciplined first! It was very encouraging and inspirational.
The Handmade Marketplace: How to Sell Your Crafts Locally, Globally and Online by Kari Chapin was full of great info. I read it and found that I was truly not as ready as I thought to start selling my own handmade goods. I was a little confused by all the business jargon, but I have a friend who is hopefully going to help me a bit this summer. I recommend if you are thinking of starting your own business or etsy, read this book first. It helps with the necessary steps needed to start on the right foot.
Into the Free by Julie Cantrell was not my favorite book of all times. I could totally tell what was going to happen next and really, it was just not the best book to read during the last 2 weeks of your pregnancy. I understand that it gave a good picture of life back in the early 1900s, but I just didn’t like all the sadness. If you like historical fiction from the depression era, you will probably like this one. Rodeo lovers probably would as well.
There you have it. I hopefully will get my list up of books for this month later today, after I decide what I am going to read.
Also, let me just say that having a Kindle Fire has made reaching my reading goals so much easier. I wasn’t paid to say that, it is just my honest opinion
