new gadget

what's the difference between a gadget and a widget?

it's not a joke, i literally don't know.....

Either way, I added a new "something" to my side panel to keep track of the books I'm reading.  Last year I resolved to read more (and better) books.  I think I did pretty well with that resolution.  I discovered a new fiction writer that I LOVE named Lisa Samson.  
Quaker Summer was so inspiring and Embrace Me was very moving.
I finally got around to reading some Donald Miller 
better late than never?
I read two of his books backwards 
(which isn't say from back to front, but in the opposite order to when they were published...)
A Million Miles in a Thousand Years made me think about my story
and Blue Like Jazz made me think about my faith.
I read some biographies and more memoirs - these are my favorite books to read.
A Year of Living Biblically was a fun read that convicted me of how little I know of levitical law and how much discipline it really takes to live as a faithful follower of Jesus.
I read a little book that was on our shelf called Churched about a guy growing up in a fundamentalist church and how's he reconciled it with how he understands his faith now.
I read some really great parenting books, the best being
Probably the best book I read all year.
I hope that book has made me a more gracious mom - with the Lord's help!
I read some books on worship and even a marriage book that I didn't think I'd ever read.
{and of course, I read alot more fluffy fiction}
Books make me feel smarter....
or a least more well read - go figure.
They give me things to think about and help me in my endless pursuit at improving my small-talk skills.

So, my resolve remains and I will track my reading with my new gadget.

do you judge me if this is fun for me?
or maybe you're inspired to track your reading too?
