My Top Ten: Books

booksOnce upon a time, I did read novels, classics and works of fiction. I progressed into memoirs, classic literature, and then my burst of fruity flavored goodness – Catholic writing. I saw this article and by the Huffington Post in my Facebook feed and instantly loved it. Which is odd because I am not crazy about the HP. I am crazy about the other HP…Harry Potter. I digress. It is 31 Stereotypes About Book Lovers That Are Absolutely True I am CRAZY for books. Absolutely nutty. You’ve seen my nightstand. And that’s just my nightstand. After reading that list, my friend Emily asked a few people what their Top 10 books were. Links provided for your convenience (using Amazon, but with affiliate links for some of my fav Catholic peeps). In no particular order, here’s my list. Care to share yours?

  1. Fascinating top ten list!

    I am a huge fantasy and sci-fi fan so I tend to read mostly fantasy and sci-fi books.
    J R R Tolkien is my absolute favorite author. I own and have read almost all of his books including the complete history of middle earth. The Hobbit got me started when I was young, and once I read The Lord Of The Rings (My Number One) I was hooked.
    For the past thirty or so years, after Christmas when things start to settle down, I read The Lord Of The Rings. It’s the perfect way to start off the new year.

    I’m a huge HP fan too. 🙂



    1. Let’s not forget, The Dune Chronicles, Imajica I and II, Stranger in a Strange Land, A Clockwork Orange, His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman … I could go on and on! Love anything written well!!!
