Books I'm thankful for
In the very beginning I remember Bill Wallace's books, Snot Stew, and Totally Disgusting! which tickled my young funny bone with cat and dog capers. But I also remember his more serious book, Beauty, about a boy and his horse. Great reads for Children. I also remember my aunt reading to me the Chronicles of Narnia...those are some great memories.
I went on to read Lord of the Rings and Dune in high school. Both incredibly memorable.
In college I devoured the Chronicles of Narnia all over again but also much of his great Christian works, The Screwtape Letters, The Great Divorce, Mere Christianity, The Problem of Pain, and many others. Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men was amazing! So to were his books The pearl, The Red Pony, and Tortilla Flat.
And recent fiction gold mines have been George Bryan Polivka's Firefish novels and Blaggards Moon, Adam's Water Ship Down, McCarthy's The Road, and now Lars Walkers The Year of the Warrior.
I look forward to what's around the corner! SO...what books are you thankful for?
