My “books to be read” list is always rather long, but I try to keep the “books I’m currently reading” pile short, lest I get too distracted to finish any or all of them. But sometimes the beast has a mind of it’s own. In fact, I just reserved another book at the library today. Because ten is a nice round number for a book stack.
Right now, my “books I’m reading” includes:
- Desperate by Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson (Preach, sisters!)
- Dancing with My Father by Sally Clarkson (Bible study book, very challenging in the best ways.)
- Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby (Bible study book for youth group. Yes, my church makes parent’s work.)
- Frontiersman: Daniel Boone and the Making of America by Meredith Mason Brown (I’m stalled out on this one.)
- Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child by Anthony Esolen (Excellent, expect a post!)
- A Canticle for Liebowitz by Walter Miller (Intriguing.)
- Cyndere’s Midnight by Jeffery Overstreet (I loved Auralia’s Colors and have high hopes for this.)
- Educating the Whole-Hearted Child by Clay Clarkson (On and off again, mostly off right now.)
- Amazing Grace by Eric Metaxas (That one’s just $2.99 for Kindle, but I don’t know for how long.)

Two of these I’m reading for bible studies, two are coming to the end of their library terms, so I think I need to bump those up to priority. I really want to read Cyndere’s Midnight first, but I just got it from the library, so I have longer for that one. I feel like I’m triaging books. The Bible study books I’m almost caught up with, so I really just need to focus on Daniel Boone and destroying my children’s imagination. Of course this doesn’t include the read-aloud books for school. We finished George Washington’s Socks and I need to read them Guns for General Washington and The Arrow Over the Door. I also need to find us a good audio book to listen to on our many journeys. Of course, I did just buy The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe, which is an excellent Easter book.
The “real book”/e-book breakdown is 6 real books to 3 e-books, with 4 of those real books being library books. But I’m pretty sure I’m going to buy copies of 2 of the library books: Cyndere’s Midnight and Ten Ways to Destroy the Imagination of Your Child. I like my kindle, but I think I slightly favor the paper book experience over the e-book.
Obviously, I’ve overdone it here, beyond the point of diminishing returns. How do you manage your reading material? Do you limit your books read for pleasure? Do you limit how many books you’re reading at one time? If you were to axe or delay a book or books from the above list, what would you suggest? And most importantly: What’s in your stack that I should read?
