Recalibrating for the New Year
I've also been reading some books on Kindle. You don't need an actual Kindle device to download and read them from Amazon. I read mine either on my iPod Touch or on my computer. One of my Facebook friends, Angela (aka The Thrifty Homemaker) routinely posts lists of free Kindlebooks. Here are three I've been enjoying lately: 77 Ways to Get Your Kids to Help at Home by Judy H. Wright, The Heart of Abundance: A Simple Guide to Appreciating and Enjoying Life by Candy Paull, and Orthodoxy by British writer G.K. Chesterton, a contemporary and friend of C.S. Lewis. "Witty" and "profound" are the two words that come to mind when I think of the writing style of Orthodoxy. You have to think about this book, which is a Christian classic. I particularly appreciate his kind words about those of us who think more poetically than logistically. Chesterton reminds us to break out of our airtight little circles of rigidly "rational" thinking and stretch our brains and our hearts to a larger life. I like that. I recommended it to my FB friend, and she added it in with today's list!
