More on books: my reading list & more

Books I would like to read this year:

Gossamer by Lois Lowry

The Journals of Jim Elliot by Jim and Elisabeth Elliot

Sacred Singleness by Leslie Ludy

The Naturally Clean Home by Karyn Seigel-Maier

The Mine with the Iron Door by Harold Bell Wright

Body & Soul by Bethany Hamilton

~This is my favorite'll find it in Annapolis, Maryland...a quiet shop brimming with books and has a tiny cafe tucked in the back.  Perfectly lovely!~

A few more of my most-loved bookstores:

McKay - a large used bookstore that also carries used CD's, DVD's, magazines and more.  There are three locations in TN...yippee for me! ;)

Landmark Booksellers - a booklover's paradise!  I've found a few *reasonably priced* treasures here.  This little shop is in Franklin, TN.

Phoenix Books - okay California, this one's for you.  Located in San Luis Obispo, this shop is brimming with books!  Some parts of it looks much like the photo below.  Heaven!

Powell's Books - located in Portland, OR, the location I visited is four stories and takes up an entire block.  I've never, ever been in such a large bookstore.  They have five locations in Oregon, and an online store.  If you want a book, they have it!

What if the book you wanted most was on the very bottom? :)

Are there any books you enjoy that you would recommend to others?  What is your favorite book, the one you read again and again and never grow tired of?

"Books make your mind more exciting...spirits higher...stress levels lower...heart more compassionate."
