I promised to share a monthly update with you on the books I’ve read this year from my rather-ambitious 2010 Booklist. So here’s what I read in January:
This autobiography of child TV star, Kirk Cameron, is a fast, fascinating, and humorous read. I had trouble putting it down and read it from start to finish in a matter of a few days.
The author of this book sent me a free copy to read and review and the title immediately drew me in. I definitely have days when I feel like a lousy housekeeper and am always on the lookout for ways to improve as a manager of our home.
This book is very exhaustive and has lots of helpful ideas and information in it. If you are drowning and have no idea where to begin when it comes to keeping your home organized, this would be a great starting point for you.
However, I personally didn’t find it to be earth-shattering. In fact, I found it a little overwhelming for the type of homemaker I am. I much prefer the simplistic approach of a system like Motivated Moms where I don’t have to spend hours developing a personalized plan, but the plan is already succinctly mapped out for me.
I loved this book. In a day and age when personal responsibility is almost unheard-of and people are always looking for someone or something to blame, this book is an excellent wake-up call. This book contains principles which could very well chance one’s business, finances, and personal life. I was left highly motivated and inspired.
