A few years ago.
Spending thirty to forty-five minutes on the treadmill four times a week gives me lots of time to read! And since I need something lively and interesting, I've been able to read several fiction books this month. Other than that time, I haven't had much time to read, but I finally figured out why. :)
- Carthage Must be Destroyed: the Rise and Fall of an Ancient Civilization by Richard Miles. I'm interested in ancient Roman history, so I thought I would enjoy this book since it was Rome that destroyed Carthage. And I did appreciate all of the history, but it was very dry. :) I'm glad I read it, and I'm glad I'm done!
- From Darkness Won by Jill Williamson. The third book in this trilogy, it was just as exciting and well-written as the previous two books.
- Curly Girl: the Handbook by Lorraine Massey. I read this book about the care of curly hair because Mary has curly hair, but I learned a few things about my own hair as well.
- Sweet Olive by Julie Christie. Tracey at Girls to Grow recommended this book, and I enjoyed it while jogging on the treadmill. Camille travels back to a small town from her childhood, trying to figure out how to make her oil and gas boss happy while not destroying a lovely neighborhood.
- Kingdom at Sea by Jill Williamson. After their land is destroyed, the people of Armania travel on ships trying to find a new land to inhabit. Another exciting book by this author that made my exercising more pleasant. :)
- Triggers: Exchanging Parents' Reactions for Gentle Biblical Responses by Amber Lia and Wendy Speake. I've said it before, and I mean it: I would buy a copy of this book for every parent that I know, if I could. Yes, it is that good!
- The White Horse King: The Life of Alfred the Great by Benjamin R. Merkle. After listening to The Dragon and the Raven, I wanted to learn more about the amazing King Alfred. My father recommended this book to me, and I recommend it to you: it's an easy, yet informative read about one of the best English kings.
