Currently Reading

Due to my complete fail in taking outfit pictures this week, I am going to share with you everything I am currently reading!

This is what is what's actively sitting on my night stand:
 I'm one of those people who can read more than one thing at a time.
I know that this drives a lot of people nuts. My friends always comment 
"How can you remember everything you've read in each book?"
I don't really know, but I do.
And if I do forget, I can quickly refresh a few pages and pick right back up where I left off.
That's just me, I guess. 

First things first is my bible:
I have had this particular one since I was about 13. It's an old friend, and even though it's geared towards younger teens, I just can't seem to part with it. 
It's sentimental to me.

The pages are falling apart and I think I've highlighted just about everything
and to be honest, that's just the way I like it.
Right now I am reading Romans 12.
I guess I read it a while ago and apparently I thought it was awesome then, too. I also seemed to like practicing drawing stars in the margins. ;)

This is the verse I currently am stuck on. I am re-reading it over and over to let it really sink in.
I'm really trying hard to just read one sentence of it at a time and really dig deeper into what each one means.
If you haven't read it, I really recommend that you do.

My next book is my "for fun" book.
I'm still reading 'The Paris Wife' by Paula Mclain.
I like it so far even though I am only on chapter 3.
It's set in Paris in the 1920's
i.e. the time period I would time travel to if I could.
So I looove that!
Plus, how could you not love a book about Hemmingway!?!?!

Oh, and I adore the opening quotes!

My next read is for school:

I am taking an Intro to philosophy course and was having a bit of trouble with the readings.
I found this book at a yard sale for $1, and picked it up out of curiosity.
It's helped a lot!
Mainly because there are hilarious illustrations that kinda set the scene better.
"WHAT THE HECK do you mean that a table isn't a table just because I can't understand Tableness! WHAT IS TABLENESS"
Oh, philosophy. I love you, but sometimes I just don't need to know "Why".

and Finally, the book that I am always referring to:
 (Well, this and the bible, but they're kinda the same)

God's Promises' for Your Every Need
I love this book! I am constantly looking up things and finding new verses to memorize.
Basically it's a giant collection of bible verses that are arranged by certain topics. 
For example, the one I am reading now
"What To Do When I'm feeling Worried:
again with the highlighting!

Right now, I am struggling with anxiety so this is what I am studying.
I am one of those people who have to be constantly reminded of God's word. I have verses everywhere! I like to write down the ones I find in this book and tape them on my mirror for a constant reminder.  There are other topics like "What to do when I'm angry" or "What God says about Jealousy" etc. 

and phew, that's it! If your interested in buying any of these, just look on amazon.
(Sorry, I'm too lazy to link them)
They have the best prices around!
