I know!! It's so hard to limit it, but that's half the fun!! The problem for me is more that I love every book I read, but sometimes I forget that fact. LOL So it's hard for me to remember my favorite 10!! You made a good list though!!VictoriaP said:Limiting this to ten is a nightmare--I finally just went with a combo of what I can't live without and what I pick up whenever I want to reread something. Some are standalones, some are part of a series, but not necessarily the first book. Most of these (and others I love), aren't the better known works the author has written. Unfortunately, that means a number of them aren't Kindleized yet. And each of the ones listed could easily be replaced by two or three more from the same author in most cases! LOL
And of course, there's easily a hundred more that aren't listed......
You are so right... I should be ashamed!! Ted Dekker is one of my absolute favorite authors! I was thinking about a Randy Alcorn book as well and decided to go with the Dekker one. I will go back and fix that!! Thanks! It was hard to only list 10!mwvickers said:Small correction. Unless there is more than one Circle Trilogy (which there may very well be), I believe you mean that it is by Ted Dekker, not Randy Alcorn.
Somewhere I've lost the thread I'm so easily confused! Which book?MAGreen said:My guess...a lot of people hate that book because it was required reading. I hate being forced to read, even if it's a good book. Many times you have to keep pace with the class and if you are a fast reader that's a pain, and if you are a slow reader it makes it really hard to enjoy anything.
Just a guess. I loved that book too! Even though I was required to read it!
These are great choices!! I knew it would be hard, but that's is what makes it so rewarding!Aravis60 said:I tried to do this a couple of times and couldn't think of what to write, so I'm going to try again. I know that this list is probably going to be heavy on kiddie lit, but I'm an intermediate reading teacher, so you'll have to excuse me.
