At the beginning of summer, my book list contained some seventeen books. The stack that formed on my bedroom floor looked something like this:
I'm beginning to think that perhaps I over-estimated myself. Granted, I have made a little progress. I have read eight books. Eight. Which, yes, leaves nine for me to read within the next three weeks. Somehow, I don't see that happening. Hm. Nonetheless, here are some of my favorites so far.
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, which I have already mentioned, is excellent. If you're into philosophy and are willing to invest the time to read all 1000 pages, I say go for it. It is definitely thought-provoking.
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee was definitely a winner. I can't believe it took me this long to get around to reading it.
And if you're a history lover like me, The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara is phenomenal.
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Patterson is a gem of a book. It always makes me think of my childhood when I read it for the first time as a young girl. Simply wonderful.
