Call me old fashioned, but I prefer reading regular paper books rather than any type of eBook. I know that sounds strange coming from someone in the under thirty crowd. (I have less than a year to stake a claim in that title and I will do so down to the very last day!) There is just something about having that physical, tangible book with pages in my hand that I don’t get from an eBook. One of my favorite pastimes is sitting on the couch, covered up with a good book to read. That however, rarely happens in my house. Really, who has time for that? Like any mom, I stay pretty busy running my kids to school and to their various activities, maintaining a clean dwelling and making sure they get some kind of nourishment. Oh and I always like to be sure they are alive and well at the end of the day. Most of my reading time comes from the countless hours spent in the car pick up line at my son’s school. Not the ideal setting, but hey, I will take what I can get.
Needless to say I prefer books that are quick and to the point, yet still very informative and thought-provoking. Some sort of comedic relief goes a long way also. No one wants to read a complete snoozefest!! Recently I finished reading Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion. Loved, loved, loved that book. He explained and elaborated on several topics that I had already begun thinking about prior to picking up a copy. Next on my list is DEconverted, by Seth Andrews. He spent most of his life in church and was a Christian radio host at one point. His book talks about his deconversion process and journey away from religion. As a recovering Christian myself, I am very much looking forward to reading his story.
Any other recommended readings would be greatly appreciated!
