I read from Gleanings a little bit at a time, with a highlighter in hand. It’s what I fit in between all the other things I’ve got going on. Definitely worth reading.

I bought a new copy of Gleanings that I have been reading slowly and highlighting passages I find personally meaningful in some way. This is much better than the used copy I got from the library that had been marked up by a “Christian” of some variety with a strong opposition to Baha’i.
I signed up for the email newsletter thing from bahai.us which includes links to articles.. this is a pretty good start for me to read a little bit periodically about the Bahai Faith and current events within the Faith.
I picked up “A Short Introduction to the Baha’i Faith” at the library and I’ve started reading that. So far I haven’t gotten very far, but I’m going to read the whole thing. It is indeed a short book.
Also, for my psychology class, I can do a project that basically consists of reading a book that is somewhat related to psychology and make notes in the margins, mark important passages with a highlighter, etc.. and turn it in for extra credit. For that I got “It’s Not Your Fault” by psychologist Patricia Romano McGraw, Ph.D., which is from Baha’i Publishing.
I’ve started reading The Hidden Words, online.. until I can eventually get a print version.. an actual book. Reading just a few passages at a time; allows me to fit it in at work between tasks and time for stuff to sink in and be absorbed.. swim around in the brain and such.
The Hidden Words is here:
