My 2013 Reading List

I’m always fascinated by other people’s reading lists, and hopefully you won’t find mine too boring.

That said, this post should be titled “My 2013 Reading List That I Won’t Read.”  I love the idea of reading but I hardly do it enough. Pretty sad, right? I’m determined to change that though.

So, here’s is my list of books that I’m determined to read this year:

The Modern Survival Manual By Fernando Aguirre

I’m excited to read this book. It’s written by a man who survived the collapse of his country, Argentina, and he has a great YouTube channel called The Modern Survivalist that I love watching. I appreciate his practical advice and most of all, his experience.

Surviving Off Off-Grid By Micheal Bunker

I heard this book is not the “how” of living off-grid, but the “why you need to” live off-grid. Micheal Bunker is an interesting fellow and this book received a lot of great reviews.

Folks, This Ain’t Normal by Joel Salatin

As I’ve said before, Joel Salatin is da man and I’ve been meaning to read his books for some time. I love his mission and his perspective. I hope to visit his farm sometime soon.

How to Feel Better and Live Longer by Linus Pauling

Do you want to live longer and feel better? That’s what I thought. I don’t know if this book recommends a plant-based diet, or an extensive vitamin regime, but I’m about to find out.

Shepherding a Child’s Heart by Tedd Trip

I was looking for a solid, Christian parenting book and came across this one. If you have any recommendations, let me know, I’d love to read more in this category.

Organized Simplicity by Tsh Oxenreider

My heart flutters when think about simplicity and organization. This book got a ton of rave reviews and Tsh Oxenreider is a cool lady.

Create: Stop Making Excuses and Start Making Stuff by Stephen Altrogge

This is a short book on how to harness your creativity. Yes, I’m talking to you. 😉 I’m excited to read it because it is biblical-based as opposed to some new age, pie-in-the-sky type of read.

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God by Jennie Chancey and Stacey McDonald

What can I say? I’m a passionate housewife desperate for God so I thought I’d check out this book.

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

I don’t know a lot about this book besides that it’s a classic and the title intrigues me. Nothing wrong with a heavier read every now and then.

1984 by George Orwell

Written in the 40’s, this book seems to have eerily prophesied the culture you and I are living in today. It’s the last book on this list but the first one I’ll be reading.

So, that’s my list. Will you be doing any reading this year? Have any book recommendations? Share in the comments below and thank you for visiting The Wannabe Homesteader.
