It’s Monday – What are you reading? June 11

It’s Monday and time to post what I’m reading, which is hosted weekly by Teach Mentor Texts.

My boys and I are still making our way through Fake Mustache.  We all find it so enjoyable, and we are savoring each chapter instead of rushing through it.  I did buy The One and Only Ivan, and my youngest is begging to listen to me read about the gorilla. Not until we are done reading about Fako Mustacho.

I’m still working through Brain Rules.  Honestly, the book has become more about quickly reading/scanning it for anything interesting.  The biggest thing I have gained is that exercise helps our brains work better, which would explain why writing inspiration always hits me in the gym, pool, outside walking, outside working in the flower beds, etc, etc.

I also started back into The Barefoot Sisters Southbound.  I started this book awhile ago but lost interest.  It is about two sisters who hike the Appalachian Trial barefoot. True story.  I picked the book back up after a couple friends of ours starting hiking the AT this spring.  I need to ask them if they have heard about the Barefoot Sisters.  As I read the book, though, I find myself wondering HOW the book was written. Was it more reflection after or did they journal through their journey?  I’m going to have to research that a bit more.

I’ve also been reading through  7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess with a group of ladies from our church.  Thanks to Facebook, we all have been able to discuss the book and how we can apply the book’s premises to our own lives. It is a faith-based book that emphasizes living more simply and purging our life of extras to allow more room for living out our faith. I actually forgot I was reading this book until I realized it was time to read the next chapter.

What are you reading this week?
