It is October 11, 2018, day 19. I am writing a bit each day about my thoughts, motivations, ideas and dreams. I like books. I mean, I am not the person who is buying up books every day like an uncontrollable habit, but I am also not the person who would rather watch the movie than read the book. I fall somewhere in between, leaning a bit more to the book side.

How do I choose my books: I mainly choose books that are recommended by others. Last week I was in Mexico learning about immigration. One of the team members highly recommended a book on an child’s journey through Central America, so I ordered it. Another book I am reading was recommend by a teacher that I listen to each week.

When do I read: I read the Bible in the morning, as well as a devotional book called Celtic Daily Prayer. I also read more heavy books in the morning, ones that are more theological. After school, while I sit at my kids swimming lessons I read lighter books, ones that are motivational. Then, at night I read books to my kids, that we both like and will learn from.

Kindle or Paper: Paper for sure, though I do have a lot of books on Kindle, I prefer paper. I like the way paper feels, smells and looks. I like highlighting and underlining and it is easier for me to find stuff I highlighted in paper books, more than on Kindle.

How much do I read: I read approx. 30-40 minutes a day, on average. Not a lot, but I try to read daily.

I am not an avid reader, but I do see it as important and heathy for my life. I want to be continually learning from others, as we all should be. Below are a list of the books I am reading now, if you care to pick one or a few of them up.
