Book List 2011

Here is my completed book list for this past year! My count is actually up from last year. (I must have taken advantage of Arden’s excellent napping routine!) The list includes many “children’s” books (some read aloud to Arden), but I happen to think they are written just as much for adults and make up an essential part of any serious reader’s library. 🙂

20 fiction
10 theology/Christian life nonfiction
3 general nonfiction
33 Total

  1. looks good! We're reading aloud the Little House books right now – I love them as a mother now, even more than when I was a little girl.

    and Arden is one of my favorite girls' names!
