Month of Reading

I’m just 1 person who reads a lot. I post my workouts here every week, and it occurred to me it might be fun to share a list of my reads for the month as well. Perhaps it will help you find a new book to pick up or move one up or down your TBR  (To be Read) pile.

Total: 12 books read

My favorite book this month was, easily, The Good Neighbor. I grew up watching Mr. Rogers and loving the land of Make Believe. I’ve seen several documentaries as well as the recent movie about Mr. Rogers. But I still learned a lot about the man, his show, and his creative process. As a child, I didn’t appreciate the operas, though I can still sing some songs from them, but other songs from the show are also stuck in my mind. Reading this book filled me with awe about his unique ministry, care, and understanding. On top of this, the audiobook is narrated by Levar Burton, so it really felt like my childhood coming together at once. 

Have you read any of these books? I’d love to hear your thoughts, if you have.
