So in typical Pattie reading fashion, I love making a list--and I love breaking up with my list and making changes along the way. (I think it's my inner rebel.)
Another pattern emerged once again--it's so easy for me to sit down and read a fiction novel. But when it comes to reading meaningful nonfiction, the kind that will kick my butt and rock my world, I hesitate because I feel like I need to give it my full attention, journal and pen at the ready.
So I don't read it.
This is why I didn't finish my original list by two nonfiction books. One remains in my "to read" this summer stack: 7 by Jen Hatmaker. The 1001 Things to Love About Military Life book will probably wait for a later time.
My summer reading list can be found here, on my summer checklist post.
Thank you once again to Katrina of Callapidder Days, for hosting a twice-yearly romp into literary listing. I appreciate you!
