I need help...

I have always loved to read. My mom used to laugh at me, because I would open a new book on Christmas morning and have it read by that night.
I was never late on any book reports in high school, and I almost always checked out the maximum number of books from the school library.
But then something happened.....I got out of the habit of reading. College life afforded me very little "fun" reading time (especially after I started dating my husband).
I was too exhausted at the end of the day when I was teaching to open another book.
I thought I would get lots of reading done when I became a stay-at-home mom, but it seems like I find many other things to do during nap time. Laundry, dishes, Facebook, and the blogosphere now take up most of my quiet time.
Would you help me? I need accountability. I wrote last week about my desire to be a part of the Bloom Incourage book club, but I have a pile of other books that I've "been meaning" to read (See picture below)


Here's my plan:
I'm going to assign myself a book report for each month just like in high school. By the last day of the month I'll post my report here.  (You can even grade it if you want!) You can share with me your thoughts on the book (if you've read it), and maybe I'll even occasionally make it an "oral" book report! :)
I'll try to include a Mr. Linky so you can link up any book reports you've written too! (I'll give you a heads up!)

February's book:

This was actually a suggestion from my pastor's wife. It's the biography of a missionary wife who spent several years in a prison camp. I'll let you know more about it by the end of the month! 
Thank you, friends!!
