Funny you should ask that.... My mom and I ARE highly recommending a book to as many girls/women as possible. Twilight. By Stephanie MeyerI forget if mom has talked to you about it or not, but you really should read it. It is better than it sounds (if you ever read the back). It's quiet romantic, and plenty of teen girls AND their mom's love it.-Maggie (and her mom)
I just bought a book for a gift exchange that I am hoping to steal myself in the exchange. It is called "The End of Racism" by Dinesh Disousa. I haven't read it yet, but I want to. Have you read The Brother's Karamazov? Ranks as probably the best "uninspired" book I have ever read.
Maggie,Yes, your mother has mentioned the book to me - and the movie :)Aunt Barb
I read the Brothers Karamazov a couple years ago (when I started my quest to read really good books). It certainly didn't disappoint :) Do you have another recommendation?Barb
Pastor John recently posted on DG's website about "Peace Like A River." I, too, enjoyed that book VERY much. Also, the book of Cold Mountain, NOT the movie. These are some lighter reads, won't take you years, but good.
Jen,I think you gave me Cold Mountain :) I think maybe I will go find it - I'm not sure which book shelf it ended up on. I was in the middle of Les Miserables at the time, so I filed it away. I think it might be time to get it out.Barb
My favorite thing in the world is to recommend books! Unfortunately, I don't know you, so this will be a stab in the dark.Category 1--Literaryish: Jane EyreCategory 2--Non-fiction: 3 Cups of Tea (I endorse the book, not all of the views in it :)Category 3--Christian: Lost Women of the Bible: the women we thought we knew. My bible study is doing this book and it's really well written and provocative.There you are. I hope you find a good book to read!
Courtney,Thanks for the suggestions! They all sound good. I'll have to read them one at a time though :)Barb
Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
