Books, Books, and More Books

Today, I am thankful for books. They provide us with knowledge, fantasy, and so much more.  The Bible, biographies, non-fiction, fiction, history, politics, the classics. Well, truth be told my least favorite to read is probably fiction, but there are a few that I like (mostly what are considered classics). Books are a great way to have some "me time" and escape. I especially love reading about old Hollywood actors and actresses. I just finished reading Cary Grant: A Touch Of Elegance written by Warren G. Harris. It was interesting, to say the least.

I have my Mom to thank for my love of reading. One of my favorite memories is of my Mom reading to me. When I was little we would read The Busy World of Richard Scarry, Little Critter, Little Golden Books, Disney Books, etc. I didn't always enjoy reading for "fun" while I was in college. I think it was because of the amount of required reading assigned for class, but now I find myself wanting to read often.

Here are some of my favorites:
The Bible
Wuthering Heights
To Kill A Mockingbird
The Hobbit
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
A Very Hungry Caterpillar
Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes
Dr. Seuss

What are some of your favorite books?

Until next time,
XOXO Amanda


  1. You KNOW how I feel about books! No kindles or other such technology for me! I gotta hold a book! Top 5 for me:
    1: Biographies
    2: Hollywood/Movie history
    3: Cultural history
    4: Wizard of Oz series (only by L. Frank Baum)
    5: Alice in Wonderland
    Love books! Great blog!

  2. That is something we definitely share is our love of non fiction. I think it comes from our learner trait. I really enjoy reading your blog especially this month.
