January 2021 Classics: Out of the Best Books


My mom told me about the above book, as she’s reading it too. Someone gave it to her as a Christmas gift. I am loving it! It’s a great story about family life, aboard a boat, for a year. I often bemoan the fact that there aren’t too many stories out there about real family life. This is one! It also shows real marriage in action. I love it. I love that these people decided to pursue their dream. And they homeschool! I read a chapter or two every night before I sleep.


I love Emily Belle Freeman’s Don’t Miss This stuff. So I decided to check out this book by her, above. I love the idea of having a special celebratory snack+ discussion every month with the family gathered around. Each of these celebrations is based on a story in the scriptures about Jesus being in a home. What a wonderful idea.

I stumbled across this one at my public library. Each chapter has a story and a lesson. It’s preachy, but so far the preach-iness is soft.

My friend Katie told me about this one above. It’s waiting for me to pick up at the public library.


This one is leftover from my Christmas fiction book binge. It’s a sequel. It doesn’t quite jive with its prequel. Was the editor asleep? Enjoyable, nonetheless. I read a little every night, along with Seven at Sea.


I’m reading aloud the abridged version of P&P to my two youngest kiddos. I think they secretly like it but won’t admit it. Then we have the Christmas Jars Reunion, below. We’re almost done! It’s fun! A great sequel to Christmas Jars.


Then for my gospel reading, I’m reading my perennial favorite, The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, just five minutes a day, plus the Doctrine and Covenants and Come, Follow Me for the Doctrine and Covenants. Just a little every day. I love these books!

Then I’m listening to some books on Audible. I’ve listed those over here, at the very bottom of the post. I listen to those on Saturdays.

What are you reading? I’d love to “hear” in the comments below.
