Brede Slow-Reading Update

Brede Slow-Reading Update

I’m making good progress in In This House of Brede. I’m loving it as much as commenters said I would. And, yes, it is very hard to stick with a chapter a day. Especially when I’m greedy and gobble up my chapter before lunch time as I did this morning.

I’m a bookworm and can’t not be reading. So to make my slow reading possible I’m supplementing with several other books: By The Shores of Silver Lake, Heaven: The Heart’s Deepest Longing, The Napoleon of Notting Hill, The Latin-Centered Curriculum, and A Mother’s Rule of Life. Also, I just received in the mail Captain Blood, which I couldn’t help cracking open, and I just got a call from the library that a book I requested is in. Can’t remember what it is except that it’s one I ordered because I’d read a review of on someone’s blog.

So, I’m juggling just fine, thank you very much. And managing to keep myself from cheating. But only just.

  • This goes right along with my statement that as a mother I am a human kleenex. grin

    One of my best friends is a mother of 7, and between her brood (ranging from newborn to 19) and working as she can as an OB nurse, she has refined my comment about kleenex: “When someone asks me, ‘What do you do?’ I say ‘I am a professional butt-wiper.’ ” Color me gross, but I laughed ‘til I cried with that one.

  • I’ve thought about this for years.  I’m sure there’s an even deeper meaning—hmmm.

    (lurker for the past few months—I absolutely love your writing and have prayed for you!)
