I know that I've linked to several book lists recently, but really -- when it comes to books -- I can hardly help myself. A few days ago my SIL brought over a whole stack of books and set them on my coffee table. I repeated in my head, "I will not read. I will not read. I will not read." But then later that evening I picked up just one measly book. I was just going to check out the back blurb. I promise! And it was about a husband's secret. So then I just wanted to read enough to find out the SECRET. And then boom! Before I knew it, I'd read the whole book. It's a sickness. I'm sick. But I do LOVE it.
All of this to say, HERE is another great book list for your book-hoarding pleasure. I like this list because it includes a good bit of solid, contemporary fiction, which is often missing in "favorites" lists. In fact, when I went to find the link, the article was listed under "Chick-lit versus Lit-Chicks," a combination I find a fascinating. I enjoy myself some chick-lit, but I want it to be meaty and substantial and leave me thinking. Many of the books on this list fit that bill. And many I haven't read at all -- I'm filling my Amazon cart WHILE I type this.
As you read this I'm off for two days of camping with 200+ teenagers. Pray for me!
