A little light reading?

I have three books going right now, eek! That's one more than I usually like to be reading at the same time, but, well, ya know. I usually read both a fiction book and a non-fiction book. I read the fiction one at night before bed, because I don't have enough brain cells left by the end of the day for anything very deep :) Here's what I'm wading through at present:

  1. Ballet Stories. This is part of the Classic Starts Series at Barnes & Noble. I've been looking for something to read out loud to the girls, but as they are only 5 and 3, it needed to be something they would "get". I came across this book and have already read a few of the stories to them. Despite the lack of pictures, they really love it. Especially Layla, surprisingly, since she's younger! 
  2. Crime and Punishment. My sister gave this to me for my birthday and it's a doozy! Not for the feint of heart, but so far well worth the 550 pages! I'm about two-thirds of the way done and am loving it. The way Doestovsky writes is truly fascinating! He would put many modern psychiatrists to shame by his work of fiction, ha! 
  3. The Grace Awakening. I'm only four chapters into this one, but am so glad I referred to this book. It's a worth-while read for any Christian, particularly those who have been at all touched by legalism. 
  4. The Five Points of Calvanism.  I am not looking for a theological debate here on my blog, so I won't say much about this one, other than that Casey and I are both reading it and it's the one our pastor recommended to solidify some things in our minds.

Unrelated, but since we all already know how awesome Etsy is, I wanted to share this super-cool new feature: The Etsy Taste Test! Fun! You click on what you like out of several sets of pictures and then they give you results of lots of handmade things you might like. Just try it, it's pretty fun...and possibly addictive ;) Here are my results. Great way to select gifts for friends too; just choose the things you think they might like. Have fun! :)
