One of my favorite things about taking a trip is the book bag I get to take. My backpack is full of books. While we’re driving I like to have my book bag right next to me. A) That makes the books easier to reach. B) It makes me happy to have them close. 😉
So what did I bring with me on this road trip?
A Promise to Remember by Kathryn Cushman (Finished on Day 7 of our trip)
A Sweetness to the Soul by Jane Kirkpatrick (Finished on Day 33)
Cat and Dog Theology by Bob Sjogren and Gerald Robison (A book I’ve owned for several years. I’ve heard some good recommendations and I look forward to reading it)
For Women Only by Shaunti Feldhahn (Pretty sure I got this book through Paperbackswap one time. I actually read it several months ago but I brought it along to discuss parts of it with my incredible husband. While I appreciate her book, I think that it is too generalized. Every man and every husband is different. You have to get to know your own man!)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (Finished on Day 14 of our trip)
Men Are Like Waffles Women are Like Spaghetti by Bill and Pam Farrel (Finished on Day 21. Saw this on a marriage blog and got it very inexpensively on amazon. Pretty sure that it will be another one that will need the same disclaimer as For Women Only.)
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers (Finished it on Day 3 of our trip.)
The Power of Words by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer (Finished Day 23)
The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers
The Spirit of Loveliness by Emilie Barnes (given to me by my sister Carrie when I got married)
I also brought a few Whodunit books. When I was younger, my family would do some of these together. They give you the story and clues…and you have to solve the mystery! I thought it would be fun to do some with my love!
So there you have it! The joys of my book bag. 😉 I’ll update this post throughout our trip with the days I finish a book!
I love that too on trips!! The hours of reading that you just can’t get away with when you’re at home 🙂
Oooh, some good books on this list! I love Jane Kirkpatrick and Francine Rivers. I’ve heard of the two marriage books you mention but haven’t read them. That’s awesome you can talk about them with your husband. 🙂
have you considered doing an audio book to share? if you stop at Cracker Barrel, you can check one out and return it at the next Cracker Barrel (yeah, I know – good marketing ploy).
