Friday Finds

This week’s post might be a boring one. I apologize in advance.

For Readers:

7 Books That Changed My Life by Russell Moore – of the books on this list, I’ve only read Mere Christianity, and that was a long time ago.  These are all going on my “To Read” list.

The 2016 National Book Award winners were announced this week. The fiction and nonfiction winners, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead and Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America by Ibram X. Kendi, have both been on my “To Read” list for a while. I need to bump them to the top!

Side note: I’ve been thinking about my 2017 reads lately. In my quest to read 100 books a year I’ve been a bit unfocused in planning what I read. Next year I want to plan out my reading a little better (ie., at all).  I have so many books in my house that I’ve been meaning to read for months – they will be my first priority.

For Fun:

Check out this quiz: Which Hogwarts House do you belong in based on your Gilmore Girls preferences? I must say I’ve never read or watched any of the Harry Potter series (I know, I know). I got Slytherin, so somebody tell me what that means about me. Thanks.

I really want to get my dog this Lion Mane Costume from Amazon. He would hate it, but it would be so cute. Maybe Christmas.

I have no Thanksgiving cooking or baking responsibilities this year but that hasn’t stopped me from spending way too much time looking up pie recipes. If I were baking a pie next week, it would be this Maple Apple Pie with Walnut Crumble Topping.

And finally, how cute are these two?

I look forward to spending the holidays with these darlings.
