This morning I thought I would give you a reading list. I like to read. I read fiction, non-fiction, and religious books. I enjoyed Harry Potter and the Lemony Snickett series and a few other pre-teen and teen books, but I also read on my level. Here are ten books (both fiction and non-ficiton) I liked enough to read most of them more than once.
1. The Old Man and the Sea - Earnest Hemingway - (Classic man against nature)
2. A Farewell to Arms - Earnest Hemingway - (The realities of war on one man)
3. A Painted House - John Grisham - (a departure from the normal Grisham style)
4. To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee - (I really like Jem, Scout, and Atticus Finch)
5. 1776 - David McCullough - (Historical reconstruction)
6. Treasure Island - Robert Louis Stevenson - (Not much better than pirates, treasure, and adventures at sea)
7. Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain - (The copy I first read had an early 1900's publishing date)
8. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain - (same as above)
9. Greece to 14 A.D. (?? Shuckburg, Putnam Bros. 1906) - (A rare history book)
10. Due South - R. Scott Brunner - (Scott's dad is a friend of mine. This book is a collection of humorous stories and anecdotes about being a Southerner. Scott's maternal grandparents are members where I preach and recently celebrated their 73 wedding anniversary.)
