In which these are my favourite books of 2009

I’ve got a post about my favourite posts of 2009 coming up in a day or two but in the meantime, here were my favourite books that I read this year.

(Sidenote: They weren’t necessarily published this year but still. My list, my rules. In the nicest possible way.)
Handmade Home and The Creative Family, both by Amanda Blake Soule
The Shipping News by Annie Proulx
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows
Now enjoy spending your Christmas money!
Edited to Add: What do you think should be on my reading list in 2010?

    Okay, so “Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society” has been on my list for a while; since it’s on yours I might as well just devour it now because we seem to track on the same wavelength! :) Regarding the teapot–might I ask how much it costs? I woul definitely give the idea to Curt for a future gift…Valentine’s Day, perhaps?? I adore it. Truly, truly.

      I think it was $35 (Canadian, of course, so that would be about $33 American, I believe). Just give my info to Curt and when the time is right…we’ll see what’s in that prettily wrapped gift for Valentine’s Day. :-)

        Oh! And it also has a full “set” of tea cups with saucers or mugs with the most delicate lace work on the edges. I believe there is also a cream and sugar set, a cake stand and a few plates for dainties.

    Gotta love Lisa Sampson.

    You knew I would comment on this, right? Anyway, I would recommend the author Tosca Lee. She has written a book on Eve called Havah, and another one called Demon, A Memoir. She is currently working on a book about Judas and you know that will be an interesting story. I just finished Demon and loved the love story between God and man from hell’s perspective. Although I wasn’t crazy about the ending.

    Also, if you haven’t already, you should start tackling Heaven by Randy Alcorn. I’m re-reading it again. Changed. My. Life.

      You’ve told me so many times about “Heaven” – I’m just going to have to pick it up!
