Back to the Books!

Well, Christmas break is over, and the first day of classes has begun!  I am not exactly weeping, because I am one of those odd beings that like school.  OK, please, we do exist!
Also, I am writing a Western Mystery Play!  This was at the request of our CBC's mother, and it is to be played next summer.  I am actually quite excited about this.
In all seriousness, though, I am a little nervous about this next half of the school year.  The first semester held its troubles and rough smacks and black days, and I expect the same for the second.  Still, it is encouraging that "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee."
I like to be dependent, so that is a very comforting verse.  God never promised to take away the trials, but he will keep me in them, which makes them quite worth the trouble.
Now, to set forth my 2013 reading list:
(This is tentative, which means I may add to it.)

1. Nicholas Nickleby
2. The Man in the Iron Mask
3. [at least two new Agatha Christie books]
4. Margaret Ogilvy
5. Kidnapped
6. The Holy War
7. The Children of a Legend
8. The City of Masks
9. [at least three new Shakespeare plays]
10. Mansfield Park

These are all books that I have never read before, so I plan to do so in the coming year.  Of course, I will read more than ten books this year, but this is my planned list.

Thanks for reading and God bless,
