Since the New Year 2014 kicked in I have been seeing several people posting about taking an “Empty Bookshelf Challenge.” This being clearing a bookshelf in your house as the start of the new year and then being purposeful in your reading to make sure by the end of the year. With the busyness of life, kids, ministry, and lots of other things, I am not the voracious reader that I used to be. So when I read about authors I like, like Jon Acuff and other men I respect like my pastor taking this challenged, I figured I would give it a try. So down in my basement I cleared a book shelf that I intend on filling with lots of reading over the coming year. To start off, I am finishing some reading that I began last year and put aside do to busyness. For starters I will be finishing “Not a Fan” and “Band of Brothers.” From there I have several more that I will be sharing with you. So like other challenges I have been on, I encourage you to join me. Let’s get reading together!
