Book List-Part 2

This second list is a work in progress. I'm constantly finding new reads and switching them out for those less interesting. I'm also a reading 'purist'. I don't read fluff.....not because I wouldn't or am opposed to it but because of the time factor. Because we have a big family with young children still at home I have to be deliberate with my reading....scheduling it like I do any other activity on our calendar. I don't watch much TV (the exception would be my relationship with Lord and Lady Grantham of course). I  definitely have more time during the summer so I plan accordingly and schedule the more intense studies and longer more brain intensive reads for then.

Here are my planned reads for Non-fiction and Novels again in no particular order:

1. Super Freakonomics by Steven Levitt
2. Abandoned and Forgotten by Evelyne Tannehill
3. A Chance in the World by Steve Pemberton
4. Emily of New Moon Series by L.M. Montgomery
5. Priceless- A Novel on the Edge of the World by Tom Davis
6. Questions Adoptees Are Asking by Sherrie Eldridge
7. A Mansion in the Mountains by Phillip T. Noblit
8. The Connected Child by Karyn Purvis *re-read*
9. Smart But Scattered by Peg Dawson
10. Wounded Children Healing Homes by Jayne E Schooler
11. Parenting the Hurt Child by Gregory Keck
12. Helping Your Anxious Child by Ronald Rapee
13. Parenting Your Internationally Adopted Child by Patty Cogen
14. Silent Tears by Kay Bratt * re-read*
15. China Lamb by Sandra Moats
16. Factory Girls Leslie T. Chang
17. Road of Lost Innocence by Somaly Mam
18. Quiet by Susan Cain
19. Wild Swans by Jung Chang
20. Fatherless by James Dobson
21. China Cry by Nora Lam
