My Ten Favorite Books

My Corner

I was invited to participate in this challenge by blogger Lynda Lambert. Here’s how it works. Think of your ten favorite books and write them down. Then invite three other bloggers to create their own lists of ten favorite book titles and invite three other bloggers and so forth. You can read her guidelines here.

Below is my list of ten books. I must admit this was tricky. At first, I could only think of five books, but then titles kept coming. They’re not in any particular order. I just wrote them down as they popped into my head.

***

1. The Wizard of Oz by Frank Baum
2. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
3. The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough
4. Marjorie Morningstar by Herman Wouk
5. Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
6. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain
7.

Remember perching in your favorite tree on a lazy summer afternoon, lingering over a masterfully constructed sentence, an imaginative phrase, the perfectly chosen word?

Remember when you simply could not put down the book you were reading?

And remember how you read your absolute favorite books over and over again?

Me too!

Well, talk about a challenge: I have been asked to whittle my lengthy list down to only 10 favorite titles!

Story Behind I have decided to Follow Jesus

Christ is Our Foundation

About 150 years ago, there was a great revival in Wales, England. As a result of this, many missionaries came from England and Germany to North-East India to spread the Gospel.
