Books worthy of your time?

Thursday, July 16, 2009

I'm in a reading slump...yes you read that right!
It's not that I haven't been reading, it's just whenever I set foot in the library I am uninspired as to what to read. Lately, I've found my found myself in the magazines, grabbing Runner's World, Travel and Leisure, and Shop Smart. I'm magazined out.
SO...I would like to know favorites, what books you have really liked, so I can add them to my list at the library. I NEED some inspiration!! Who knows what I will be oogling over next time...business magazines??
Help!

Do you kids children's books?

~Linnea in Monet's Garden - Cristina Bjork, Lena Anderson, and Joan Sandin

~The Phantom Tollbooth - Norton Juster

~The Wheel on the School - Meindert Dejong

~London Snow - Paul Theroux (a christmas story that my brother's and I loved growing up!)

~The American Girls Handy Book (not a pleasant company book...) - Lina Beard (non-fiction)

Or do you prefer other:

~The Private World of Tasha Tudor - Richard Brown, Tasha Tudor, Barbara Werden (non-fiction)

~Boy/Girl Scout Handbooks from the old days...I usually find them to be pretty entertaining reading :-)

~The Man Who was Thursday - G.K. Chesterton

~The Power of Prayer in a Believer's Life - Spurgeon

~Stepping Heavenward - Elizabeth Prentiss

All are books I've read and enjoyed in the past...though sadly I haven't read in a looooong time! :-)

Thanks Lisa...I'm going to add a lot of those to my list for the library...They all sound really good...thanks for the recommendation. Do you have a favorite? I was thinking of reading Anne of Green Gables because I never have!

Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell. Non-fiction. Follows people that have been successful and what factors it took to get them there. Very interesting...
