Books I've Read or Am Reading~

Here are a list of books I'm reading or have finished in the last few months.

Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis ~ I read this for school and learned so much from it. Its one of those books that you really have to pay close attention to so you will understand it! I particularly like the chapter on tithing. He was a very deep thinker.

Against the Tide by Hope Irvian Marston ~ I can's say enough about this book. They had such amazing faith.

In Freedom's Cause by H. A. Genty ~ I read this book for school too and I learned SO much from this book. It's about the fictional character of Sir Archibald Forbes as he grows up and fights with William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. I learned more about Scottish history in this one book than I learned anywhere else.

Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott ~ I have to admit I hated this book when I started it the beginning of this school year. It was very boring but it has definatly become much more enjoyable!:) It's about Cedric the Saxon when England was under the rule of the Normans in the time that Prince John ruled over England while his brother King Richard the Lion Hearted was fighting in the crusades. Robin Hood, or as he is called in the book, Locksley is also involved.

The Brenden Voyage by Tim Severan ~ This is a story about a man who in the 1970's built a ship out of leather trying to prove that Saint Brenden's ancient stories of sailing in a leather boat accross the ocean might be true. This was a good book and it was part of my geography. I had a few parts with language in it.

Emily Post's Ettiquette by Peggy Post ~ I loved this book! It was very interesting!:) I really like the "Questions From Peggy" sections.

Mildred Keith by Martha Finley ~ I have read the A Life of Faith version of Millie and really enjoyed them but I found the originals at our church library (I was the first to check it out!;) I love to know I'm the first person to read a book!) and I like it a lot!

The Birth of Britain by Winston Churchill ~ This is one book for history that I don't think I will every be able to really love!:( It's just kind of boring. But it has taught me more about he history of Britain so I guess I can't say I hate it!:)

The History of English Literature for Boys and Girls by Eva March Tappen ~ This is about early account of English literature and their writers.

Emma by Jane Austen ~ I really like this book!:) It's my favorite of Jane Austen's novels although Emma gets on my nerves and I can't stand Miss Bates! She is SOOOO annoying! She will never be quiet. I can just see Jane Austen smiling as she wrote Miss Bates's conversations!:)

Those are all the books I've read in the last few monthes or am still reading. Hope you find a book in the list that you might read for yourself!

I love the Millie books! :)Are you doing the study buddy contest where you could each win either a doll, or $100 dollars? I think me and Laura are going to do it together. You and Lydia could.

I saw your terrific booklist on your side bar as well as the post here. I was wondering if I could add your booklist to my book blog...I would add it as a post and refer my readers to your blog IF you wanted me to. If youw ould agree to this, it would be helpful if you let me know your age so I could let my readers know what age these books are for.

Thank you for your consideration.
If you do not feel comfortable with this, I more than understand.

If you're saying that, you are as blind as Emma herself! Miss Bates actually is a self portrait of Jane Austen!
