FYI: I have a yummy recipe for Bread Machine Focaccia posted over on my food blog today, in case you’re curious! It is Tasty Tuesday after all!
2010 was NOT a great reading year for me. (Remember my whole “follow-through” issue?!”)
In fact, one of the only books I actually finished in 2010 was the Bible. Hello?! You think I could have finished something a little shorter pretty easily, huh?!
So, I’m making a list and FOLLOWING THROUGH this year! I will read each of these books and I will let you know what I though about each one as I finish it!
So here they are, in no particular order…
Top Ten Books to Read in 2011
One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are
I am counting my blessings every week because of Ann’s Gratitude Community – I can’t wait to be encouraged and challenged by her book. And she is even lovelier in real life than she is on her blog – so genuine and kind!
Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living
I need this. Exactly what the title says – I need it.
The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels–A Love Story
I tried to read and keep up with this story on the blog but I kept forgetting where I was. So I just decided to wait for the book. And it will be out in February – WOOHOO!
I have heard only rave reviews about this book – several have told me it is a book every Christian married couple has to read. So it’s on my Kindle app now!
Reshaping It All: Motivation for Physical and Spiritual Fitness
Candace Cameron Bure and Darlene Schacht
Yep – need this one too. Especially the physical part!
A dear friend lent me her extra copy of this book – I am eager to dive in. It sounds so interesting and thought-provoking.
The Reluctant Entertainer: Every Woman’s Guide to Simple and Gracious Hospitality
Sandy’s blog is fabulous and I want to soak in more of her wisdom in the area of hospitality – this book looks amazing!
The Mission of Motherhood: Touching Your Child’s Heart for Eternity
This is one I started in 2010 – and it’s time to follow-through! I love every word I have read so far and I will follow it up with…
The Ministry of Motherhood: Following Christ’s Example in Reaching the Hearts of Our Children
I love the challenge found right in the title. I know Sally’s books will stretch and grow me as a parent and a Christian. She is a gem.
The Me Project: 21 Days to Living the Life You’ve Always Wanted
I loved Kathi’s Husband Project, so I know The Me Project will be awesome as well – and I kind of think of myself as a work in progress right now anyways – or all the time!
So what is on your list to read in 2011? Do you breeze through books or have a stack of unfinished ones?

Oooh. I’ll have to check some of these books out! Thanks for sharing. 😀
There are few things nicer in this world than a good book, a cup of tea and a little corner of my living room. Thanks for the inspiration to get back reading again! I’ll have to check a few of these out.
I have sheet music if you want to borrow it. I really liked it.
I love Kathi Lipp’s books! I didn’t realize she has a new one! Thanks!
I should make a list of books I want to read this year. I usually just wing it and some years I get more read than other years.
I am waiting for Ann’s book to arrive. My dil gave it to me for Christmas! I am so excited! I love Sally Clarkson.
I am reading Choosing to SEE, Too Small to Ignore, Hope Lives, So Long Insecurity…
Thanks for sharing.
My best read for 2010 Radical, I will Carry You.
we read sheet music years ago. i wish i hadn’t gotten rid of it… maybe i still have it. but a great book. you have a lot of great books listed!
i really want to read mary beth chapman’s new book called “Choosing to see”… steven curtis chapman’s wife… looks great!
Looking forward to your reviews!
Good books! Some of those are my reading list as well. I also began reading The Mission of Motherhood in 2010 and never finished reading it. I haven’t heard of some of these but they sound really good and I’ll probably add them to my list, too. The more unfinished books the merrier. *snort*
I have started a book list but it’s pitiful – only two books. I just started it though and hope to read some of them this year. My problem reading books is affording them. If a library doesn’t have them, I can’t read them.
The two on my list are:
Heaven is for Real – Todd Burpo
Reshaping It All – Candace Cameron Bure
And I forgot to add the first of your Sally Clarkson books 😀
I dind’t realize that Top Ten Tuesday was a blog URL. Silly me! I thought it was like #FF.
But now I’m here, and thank you!!!
I have 5/10 of those on my list. 😉
