My friend, Sarah Sumner, just e-mailed me asking: “What are your 10 favorite books? I’m developing a ‘Read before you die’ list for myself.”
Sooo, here’s my best attempt (in random order) . . .
*Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
*Everything by C. S. Lewis
*The Bridge To Terabithia by Katharine Patterson
*To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
*Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
*The Bridge Across Forever by Richard Bach
*The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck
*The Count Of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas
*Watership Down by Richard Adams
*The Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings trilogy by J. R. R. Tolkien
*Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt
*The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
*The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
*Velvet Elvis by Rob Bell
Okay, a few more than 10 and done very quickly.
Now, what are the best books you’ve ever read?
