How do you balance reading Christian books--bibles, nonfiction, fiction--with your other reading? Does your Christian reading get pushed to the side at times? Why or why not?My answer:
I'm really struggling trying to find time (and energy!) to read Christian fiction. I set the unrealistic goal (well, mostly unrealistic goal) of reading two Christian books a week. Christian fiction or Christian nonfiction. I thought--for better or worse now--that since I read about seven to twelve books a week, that it shouldn't be a problem for two of them to be Christian. It sounds reasonable enough on paper. I'm not sure why this isn't working out for me. Is it a matter of my priorities being out of sort? Or is a matter of putting too much pressure on myself? Or is it a matter of me trying to wear too many hats? I'm definitely feeling out of balance. Trying to read review copies that publishers (and a small handful of authors) have sent me, trying to read books I own (mostly classics), trying to participate in a few blog tours a month, trying to read library books.
