I’m a book devourer (it’s official because it’s on my bio page, you know). I have always read for oxygen, my only punishment as a child was to have my books taken away from me. I still read, constantly, no matter how busy my life can be at times, I always make time for my books during the day, dipping into pages for a few minutes here and there, and I end my day with my books. I read widely but I have particular weakness for literature, poetry, conversion memoirs, Christian spirituality, and authentic stories of God’s grace and redemption, Anne of Green Gables, Hogwarts, Narnia, Northanger Abbey, Gothic mysteries…oh, okay, fine I’ll read almost anything…
Summer is always a lovely time to read. And, on a whim, I thought I’d share my favourites with you.
So I’ll share 10Books a Day For a Week here at my place. Here’s a fancy button and everything.
Here’s the results….
Sunday: 10 books that changed my faith
Thursday: 10 books I read over and over (and over)
Friday: 10 spiritual memoirs
Saturday: My daily books + 10 books of poetry
One of my favourite things to do when I visit a friend is snoop their bookshelves. I like to see what they read, what has a battered spine, what books make the privileged cut for prime bookshelf real estate. I love to talk about books, talk about what you’re reading and learning, so this is really just pure indulgence for me.
Consider this an invitation to snoop my bookshelves. And I’d love to do the same, so if you want to follow along and post about it on your own blog, be generous – share the link in the comments so that we can all pop over to snoop at your shelves.
