... which may go awry at some point, depending on the footnotes.
Seriously, the footnotes of books are the best place to find other good books. Sometimes, my intentions are good, but I end up diverging from plan.
Here is my intended summer reading plan, although, it may change.
- Participate in a book study of According to Plan, by Graeme Goldsworthy, with the girls at Desiring Virtue.
- Finish Les Miserables, and follow that up with The Road.
- Finish Living for God's Glory by Joel Beeke.
- Have a quick read of Elyse Fitzpatrick's Idols of the Heart.
- Participate with Challies.com's Reading the Classics, reading The Hidden Life of Prayer.
- Start conjugating those old Latin verbs. Seriously, I have some books to refresh my study of Latin. I found some resources, Lingua Latina, which I hope to look into.
I will be finishing my lesson plans for the six weeks of Training in Righteousness that I will be doing with the women at my local church in September. This may or may not involve more reading, depending on what footnotes According to Plan brings up.
My daughter is currently taking a seminar called "Evangelical Literature and American Culture" which has some very interesting sounding articles. Part of her reading involved portions of Wild at Heart and The Shack, both which left her irritated and annoyed. It was kind of funny to watch. She has to read Left Behind as well, which should prove just as frustrating for her. Some of the articles she's read for the course sound really interesting. I think she's learned more about the church history and the history of revival through this course than she ever did in a church setting.
