Current Reads and Reading Plans

Current reads as of November 25:

  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen (1811)
  • The Handbook of Nature Study by Anna Botsford Comstock (1911)
  • The Broken Heart: Applying the Atonement to Life’s Experiences by Bruce C. Hafen (1989)
  • Teachings of the Presidents of the Church: Gordon B. Hinckley published by the LDS church (2016)
  • Dune by Frank Herbert (1965)
  • The Tanakh translated by the Jewish Publication Society  (compiled circa 450 B.C.)
  • Sir Gibbie by George MacDonald (1879)
  • Doctrine and Covenants Commentary, Volume 2: It Came from God by Monte S. Nyman
  • History of Joseph Smith by His Mother by Lucy Mack Smith (1853)
  • The Green Ember by S.D. Smith (2015)

And, of course, my studies will also include the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon, but I have decided that this year is the year I need to make a more *in-depth study* of the Doctrine and Covenants and recent Church history. I want this year to be the year I fall in love with the good ol’ D&C and LDS church history. I hope to do some notebooking a la Charlotte Mason, too.

I hope to follow up with devoting 2018 to a thorough study of the Old Testament, 2019 to the New Testament, and 2020 to the Book of Mormon.

Upcoming possible forum discussions I may participate in:

  • Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe
  • Moby Dick by Herman Melville
  • Silas Marner by George Eliot
  • The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
  • Manalive  by G.K. Chesterton
  • Rob Roy by Sir Walter Scott
