The Art of Reading

Check out this lovely vintage file box by havenvintage. Brilliant, really.

Late at night when my son is soundly sleeping and my husband is strenuously studying (of which they both do frequently), I tune in to a class I am enjoying from Lawrence University, entitled The Art of Reading.

I don’t have time to take a class. But thankfully–since the class comes to me via CDs–I can cook and clean, polish and plunder with a ball point pen tucked behind my ear and a notebook stuck in my apron. (There is evidence of dish soap on several of the pages.)

Simply put, I am taking the class because I believe in reading. Reading, in my opinion, is synonamous with learning or improving or growing. I make it a point never to go a day without learning something from a book.

Professor Timothy Spurgin, teacher of The Art of Reading, said: Reading should be a pleasure, not a chore or a burden.

And I agree. But I would also add that reading should be a habit.

Tonight, I am passing along some free eBooks:

Sons of Thunder by Susan May Warren
A Daughter’s Inheritance by Tracie Peterson
The Keeper by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee

One more thing before I head off to clean and listen … please consider adding your name to the hat before the drawing tonight at midnight …
