The Reading List


We’re starting to pack for our upcoming move, and, because we’re going to be in temporary housing for a month without projects to do, I set aside some books to read. The rest are getting packed and stored. Here’s what’s on the list:


Rotary cutting: Basics and Beyond. Speedy Cutting Techniques…  I am all about improving my speed in projects.


The City of God by St. Augustine. A classic, which I probably should have read a long time ago. Rescued from my Uncle Bob’s library before any estate sale. Hmm. Just now while taking the picture I realized this says “Vol II.” and I don’t have Volume I, unfortunately. May need to hunt that down at the library.

The Standard Book of Sewing by Drucella Lowrie.  Since I mostly make projects off online tutorials, I figure I could benefit by learning some basics. I think I got this and the rotary cutting book as hand-me-downs from a friend.

The Vanishing Word: The Veneration of Visual Imagery in the Postmodern World by Arthur W. Hunt III. I really have no idea what this one is about, but it was highly recommended by my mom, and I picked it up from her at Christmas.

Respectable Sins: Confronting the Sins We Tolerate by Jerry Bridges. Also from my mom’s library, this one promises to be convicting.

Have you read any of these? What are you planning to read this summer?

  1. Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges: an excellent book!! Check out it’s companion book- Practice of Godliness. (Respectable Sins is all about putting off certain sins, then Practice of Godliness is putting on the new man, os you don’t get all discouraged after reading the first book) 🙂

  2. Hey Andrea! Thanks for the reading ideas. Toby & I were just coming up with a “goals” list for the summer and I’ve added two of these books– Bridges & Hunt– to our list 🙂
