The Feast Basket: Books to Scour, Skim or Scan & Cycle 1 Book List for Weeks 1, 2, 3

August 16, 2018

Women by Still Waters | Christian Mom Blog

Hello Friends!

 

If you listened to my bookish podcast over the summer, you may have heard a little of my passion, er obsession, for books. I may or may not be proud of the fact that my house does have that faint smell of  “le old book.”  

 

Maybe your home or budget or minimalism does not allow for books to be piled everywhere. And that is ok! Make use of your local library, that’s what it’s there for. But I did want to give you the lists of books you’ll find in my baskets in the coming weeks.

 

My “feast baskets” are places where I keep books always within reach at my house. When boredom strikes, I hope that little hands will reach for a book to scour, skim or scan. During the school year, I am pretty intentional about the books within reach.

 

This list is not comprehensive, I will likely add to it as I pop in and out of my local library. But these lovelies are what are in my home now and many you can find at your library or you can purchase online. Enjoy!

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
