Jeg behove en bog!


























Pictures are of our bookshelves, by Brent, who was playing around with camera. I like the little angel in the one. :)

Anyway, these relate to my real reason for posting: Believe it or not, the end of the semester and a three week break is almost in sight and I was reminded by a friend to take advantage of the relative decrease in workload to catch up on my reading. In case you didn't know, I am an avid reader of both fiction and non. I particularly like biographies, Victorian literature and history--both real and historical fiction.

So...all you blog-readers out there, do you have any book recommendations? I can't promise to read all, but I'd love some suggestions.

In reciprocation, I will offer but one author who has written children's lit, Christian lit, philosophy and adult fiction. She is a very thoughtful author, giving insight into the place of Christianity in literature, academia and life in general. So, I recommend Madeleine L'Engle, most famously known for A Wrinkle in Time, but writer of many many others.

I think that you should read the book called "Mr. God, This is Anna" but be prepared to cry at the end :(

Kirstin,

I am sure that you have read it before but I was reminded of it again today, To Kill A Mockingbird. I love reading this book every couple of years, it is such a fantastic story. Mind you the reading selection is rather thin over here. As is the time for reading.
