12 Books I Plan to Read This Year

20 Jan
I'm also hoping to re-read a bunch of journals.

I’m also hoping to re-read a bunch of my own personal journals.

I always seem to have a continuous list of books that I want to read.  This year I decided to list some of the books that I plan to read.  🙂  Each month I usually post a list of books that I have read in the past month.  I also keep a running tally of books on my Pintrest board that I want to read and books that I have read.  You can see a list of books I read in 2012 here and a list for 2011 here.  You can also search for the word “Reads” to see a list of books I have read & reviewed in the past.

    Tyson got “The Backyard Homestead” for Christmas – he is loving it! We already bought a chicken coop for the spring.

      Really? That is so cool. I can’t wait to read it.
      I grew up with chickens and to this day I can tell you the difference if I am eating a farm egg or a store egg. 😉 There is such a difference. I can’t stand store eggs and buy eggs every week from my sister who has a small egg business.

    i got “young house love” for christmas from melinda, and it is Great! there aren’t a lot of design/diy books that i completely love, but i loved this one–everything was doable, and it gives you an idea of how much work a project would be and how much money it would cost. i’m planning on doing a lot of those projects sometime in the next couple years.

      I’ve actually been reading Young House Love this week and it is awesome! I love that the book was written by people who aren’t professionals. 🙂 I would love to learn how to paint some furniture this upcoming year and sew a new cover for a chair we have that is ugly. I might also try painting some of our lamps. I would love to see anything you end up working on. You should definitely blog about your projects.
