My Book List

My grandmother kept a list of all the books she's ever read.  She was a voracious reader with a long and varied list.  I don't so much have an interest in making a record of all the books I've read, but this is a list of books I've read and loved.  Some books have challenged my faith, helped me become a writer, made me laugh so hard I cried, and others moved me.  I hope you find something from my list that tickles your fancy and I hope you follow in my grandmother's footsteps and start keeping a list of your own.
