I just read a list of Best Book Blogs of 2006 and decided to share my favorite books of 2006. Here goes:
MY TOP 10 BOOKS – 2006
Pearl Maiden, H.Rider Haggard
Lysbeth, H.Rider Haggard
The Brethren, H.Rider Haggard
Can you tell I found a new favorite author? I can’t wait to read King Solomon’s Mine by Haggard in 2007.
The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne
I hadn’t read this since high school. At that time I was so appalled at the adultery in the book, I couldn’t see the transformations taking place. This time I read this with a Biblical persepctive and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Up From Slavery, Booker T. Washington
I learned so much from this biography and still want to write a review listing the many life-changing lessons.
Duncan’s War, Douglas Bond
Ivanhoe, Sir Walter Scott
Mary Emma and Company, Ralph Moody
Great books we read with the family
Man in Black, Johnny Cash
Even though Johnny Cash was a staple in my house growing up, I wasn’t that interested. After watching “Walk the Line”, I wanted to read more about Cash. I was impressed with June’s role of saving him from himself and the way God used June to bring Johnny to salvation. I read both of his biographies, as well as June’s. This was my favorite.
Amusing Ourselves to Death, Neill Postman
When my daughter finished this book, she told me she knew I liked this book because it had many ideas I express regularly. I guess she knows me pretty well.
