From A to Z

I love books.

I hope to pass on my love of the written word, and the magic of stepping through the pages of a story, into another world. The boys see that their Dad and I are readers - I hope that Matthew and Luke become avid ones. Compiled here is a list of books I'd like to acquire, so that as a family, we can share in one of life's greatest pleasures - curling up with a good book.

The Places You'll Go!
Of Mice and Men
Catcher in the Rye
Heart of Darkness
Gulliver's Travels
Great Expectations
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn
The English Patient
Three Day Road
The Sun Also Rises
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
A Wrinkle in Time
The Robber Bride
The Chosen
Davita's Harp
My Name is Asher Lev
Jane Eyre
Fall On Your Knees
The Stone Angel
The Stone Diaries
Jacob Have I Loved
The Kite Runner
A Thousand Splendid Suns


  1. Great books! Some of my faves are on that list.

  2. I am such a book lover and find that it is my most relaxing stress technique. LOVE some of those books on the list there.

  3. Love The Kiterunner among others.

  4. Do you have the book "I Love You Forever"? As a mom of boys, you will definitely appreciate it. I read that book to Eric nonstp for several years. I may need to dig it back out again for John. LOL!!
