Books Read in March 2016

March was the opposite of February. I actually didn’t get much reading done. However, I am just happy that I got any reading done! In any case, here is what I’ve read:

1. The Power of Broke by Daymond John. I LOVED this book. You can read my review here.

2. The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace. I am reading this as part of a book study I am doing with some friends from the homeschooling co-op. We are getting ready to discuss chapter seven (aff). All I can say about this book is that it is CHALLENGING in so many ways!

3. The Power of Intent by Tom Meitner. This book was pretty good. My review for this book will be published tomorrow (Thursday).

Of course, I also have been reading the Mercy Bible Study. For April, I do not have any specific books in mind. I will keep up with the bible/book study and I’m sure I will find some books to read. I always do!

What are you reading this month?

Books Read in February 2016

If you read Monday’s post, you know that last week was CRAZY, and now I feel so behind! That is why I am getting this post out in the 2nd week of March instead of the 1st. 🙂

Books Read in February 2016

Amazingly, I did a fair amount of reading in February:

Trim Healthy Mama – very good!

An Amish Year – very good, too.

Choosing Joy – Like I wrote in the post, this one is a MUST READ

How to Get Honest Reviews – This is an excellent book that I hope to implement soon.

The Healing of Families – I’m still not sure how I feel about this book. There were a lot of good points but there were also some areas where I questioned the theology. I need to process this book a little more before making a final judgement.

Feels Like Love: A Snow Valley Romance – This is a Christmas story and although I know Christmas is over, I read it anyway. It is a cute and clean romance story.

Sugar Detox: Uncovering the Guide to a Healthier Lifestyle… – There were a lot of problems in this book including way too much repetition. It also read too much like a commercial. The concept is good and I have personal experience with sugar as an addiction  and the few recipes at that end that I tried were good but not enough to recommend the book.

How I Sold 80,000 Books – Got lots of great marketing ideas from this book!

Book Publishing for Beginners – This book is okay. There are some good ideas but, and I hate to write this, it was kind of boring. It was basically a play-by-play of a few of his book launches without much else. I wouldn’t recommend this book either.

Yes, I really read all those  nine books this month! Several of those books weren’t very long and I had lots of “pockets” of time where I was able to read for a bit.

Books I’m Planning to Read in March

I am not planning to do much reading in March, per se, unless I have unexpected reading time like I did in February. But here are the few (Not including the bible study):

The Power of Broke – I am reading this for the Blogging for Books review program

The Excellent Wife – I am reading this with some fellow homeschooling moms as a book study. So far, it has been very challenging – in a good way!

Living with Intent: How to Choose Joy and Success, and Change Your Life in 7 Days – I found the book free on Amazon and decided to check it out. The title is certainly interesting. 🙂
