I’ve compiled this list of books that I remember reading within the last few years. An accurate list of ALL the book I’ve read will never be possible because I’ve been reading for 20 years. As I think of other books, I will add them to the list. This list doesn’t include the numerous self-help books I’ve read or homeschooling how-to books. I’ve also read many Christian non-fiction books. I’ve read many books by E. Raymond Capt and David Barton. I’ve read most of Danielle Steele’s early books and all the books by historical romance author Norah Hess.


Reading in my most treasured hobby. I can get completely lost in a story. I love books about the early American frontier, mountain settlements of the 1800’s, and Civil War era novels. My sister has been trying to get me to branch out and try new genres. I realized that I have closed myself off to many great books because I was only reading Christian historical fiction. I am now reading and enjoying other types of books.

Here’s my plan. I want to start at the beginning of 2013 with a yearly reading list. I plan to record my yearly reading list just like my sister’s.
