Most people are shocked to find out that I’m not a big reader. Most of the time, I read because my counselor is making me or I need something to help me sleep. There are a few, rare occasions that I am legitimately interested in a topic, but hardly ever have I picked up a fiction book of my own volition. I just don’t get into them, including the trendy Twilight ones about vampires.
I just finished reading Boundaries by Cloud/Townsend. Next on my bedstand is a re-read of The Search for Significance by Robert McGee. Both are great books.
Here are a few of my all-time favorites…
The Monster at the End of this Book by Jon Stone – This is my favorite book from childhood. I highly recommend it. But watch out – there is a monster at the end of the book!
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee– I read this in 8th grade and have been a fan ever since. Themes of bravery and prejudice are beautifully explored through the lives of loveable characters.
Captivating by John & Stacy Eldridge – Every woman should read this book. Period. Every man should read this book to discover more about the women in his life. Period.
He’s Just Not That Into You by Behrendt/Tuccillo – My parents got me this for Christmas a few years ago. What do you think they were not so subtly trying to tell me? 🙂 This tongue-in-cheek (but filled with good advice for women) phenomenon was made into a movie this past winter, but the book is a million times better.
Tuesdays With Morrie by Mitch Albom – This inspiring book is a must read. Life lessons are bestowed through the last class of a beloved college professor. I cry like a baby every time.
