Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Book Love

We visit the library every Friday after picking the kids up from school.
It's our thing.
If it gets thrown off, I feel weird.

We LOVE books.
The kids get tons and sometimes I think I need five bags for everything!

We get  a few movies too while I'm there. I read from my Nook so I usually peruse the books on sale to see if there is anything I can't leave behind. But then again, we are talking about books. I can get rather obsessive over a book.

Like I am right now. I feel keenly that I should have bought that book that I left behind and I'm going to keep going and looking at it until I buy it.

After all, 'tis only 25cents :)

I bought these three books when I was there last.

1. So Long Insecurity - Beth Moore. 

I definitely need this one. You have no idea how hard I've struggled with being insecure about everything!
So Long, Insecurity: You've Been a Bad Friend to Us

2011 Retailers Choice Award winner!
Perhaps one of the biggest issues all women face is their own insecurity. Beth Moore, one of today's most admired and trusted Christian writers, wants women to be free from the insecurity trap. So Long, Insecurity will strike a chord with women everywhere, as Beth speaks truth into the lives of readers, showing them how to deal with their innermost fears, rediscover their God-given dignity, and develop a whole new perspective—a stronger sense of self. Women of all ages and backgrounds will resonate with this message of security and discover truths that will free them emotionally and spiritually and lead them to a better life as they walk with God.

2. The Purpose Driven Life - Rick Warren 

I've heard much about this book but during the hype I didn't buy it or read it. And here it was at the library for 25cents :)
Did I mention how much I LOVE my library?
Daily Inspiration for The Purpose Driven Life: Scriptures and Reflections from the 40 Days of Purpose
With over 1,000 Scriptures outlining each day of the 40 Days of Purpose, this book is a wonderful reference. Winner of the Retailers Choice Award.

3. Love & Respect - Dr Emerson Eggerichs
I remember this book from either  a bible study or somewhere, but maybe I could read it again, on becoming the best me.
Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs
A Marriage Book with a Difference!
A Revolutionary Message“I’ve been married 35 years and have not heard this taught.”
  • “This is the key that I have been missing.”

When that need is met, he is happy.When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love and Respectreveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

    1. Thank you Teresa.
      I'm visiting your right now :)

  2. We do go to our library it's one of my favorite places to be. :)

    I have the Rick Warren book. I'm terrible about doing one page a day though... I always want to skip ahead and read more.

    1. Haha you are like me. It's hard to just do one page a day.

  3. I LOVE the library! They have a great selection of books in a variety of formats, other media, and fantastic programs. And it's all free!

  4. Great books! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Those sound like some great books. :)

    1. Thank you Shannon. I can't wait to read them!

  6. You made wonderful choices. I did a Bible Study once on one of the Purpose Driven Life books.

    1. Thank you Liz.
      I can't wait to read it. I think I might choose it first!

  7. I think you picked out a few fabulous books to read! It always amazes me how a simple book can change someone's life. You wouldn't think so, but there's a lot of power packed in that physical object!

    I do quite love the local library but don't make it there as often as I'd like. Truth be told sometimes I forget it's even an option o.O

    Currently, my mom and I bought The Blood Sugar Solution Cookbook and are quite excited to try out some recipes!

    1. Now if only I could come over for dinner!! :)

  8. Great sources!!:)

  9. Reading is so important Colette and it is good that your children are being encouraged to do so. I love to read inspirational books. The books above sound great. Have a great weekend.


Thank you for visiting. I love your comments and will visit you also if you have a hyperlink. #ThisIsTheDay
