I have a confession to make.

I think I’m addicted…

To book lists .

I love them – whenever I find a list of someone’s favourite books I open up my library homepage in a new tab and start requesting titles. I am especially delighted when I find a book that I love on a list – then I know we share similar tastes.

I have 25 books requested at my library…

Apparently that’s the limit – no exceptions – they are not interested in the fact that I recently discovered this book.

Oh. my. word!

Lists and lists and lists…

from the writer of Honey For A Child’s Heart – a book that I literally wore out.

Zondervan writes:

 Gladys Hunt, long-time advocate of reading and author of the cherished Honey for a Child’s Heart, has written this new book for busy women who want a wider worldview and stimulus for intellectual and emotional growth. Honey for a Woman’s Heart explores: * The wonder of words, language, and reading * What good books offer thoughtful readers * What makes a good book * The value of reading fiction * Best books in genres of fiction, nonfiction, spirituality, and poetry * How to enjoy the best of books: the Bible * The pleasure of sharing books with others * Something for everyone, no matter what age or reading experience * Recommendations for over 500 books to enjoy

A delight!

    I do this too! I reserve them, I order them, I find more lists online. Isn’t it fun to discover a new author that you love? And sometimes ‘word of mouth’ is the best way to find them.

    Oh my, this looks like the book for you! (I remember the Honey book she wrote for kids – did I own it once? Not sure, but if I did, I don’t any more.)

    The lovely ladies at our local library are so good at getting me the books I want to read. I prefer not to buy novels, because who has time to read them twice, so the library is the place for me.Cas
