Lenten Reading

This year for Lent, I've determined that rather than giving something up, I'm going to add something to my daily habits.  I spend quite a bit of time each day reading for pleasure, but for the course of Lent I plan to devote an hour of each day to reading Scripture and Christian literature.  I've come up with a stack of books that I hope to work my way through during that hour (at least) of each day that will be spent in study and reflection.  Here's what I'll be reading:

And a few via NetGalley:

Obviously, that's quite a bit of reading, so I'm not sure I'll get through all of it - and I'm still open to adding other options to the list.  Any great suggestions?


  1. I love this, it's a great idea! I, too, am adding in something instead of subtracting! Great minds :) I am taking time to pray the Rosary once a day. I've never attempted to say it on any kind of regular basis, much less every day, but I think some meditation time for Lent is just what I need right now.

  2. Good idea! I don't observe Lent, but my husband does, so I think it's a great idea to add some meditative reading time! (Plus any reason to read more sounds good to me!)

  3. Awesome! Such a great idea. I think maybe I'll do the same. Thanks for the inspiration. I have a ton of these books that I keep meaning to read and never do.
