A few weeks ago Brenda @ Coffee, Tea, Books and Me showed us some of her bookshelves. Being an avid reader, I love to see what other readers have on their shelves. I thought that you might like to see some of the books that I have on my shelves. These shelves are from the bookcase in the hallway, and house books I like to keep close at hand...
Health For Godly Generations by Renee DeGroot is an thoughtful book about making wise food choices. So is the book Real Food,by Jessie Hawkins. Biblical Womanhood in the Home by Nancy Leigh DeMoss is excellent as well. What Makes A Man Feel Loved by Bob Barnes (husband of Emilie) is one I always recommend to young women who are getting married or even women who have been married for a while.
These are books that have challenged me and encouraged me. I don't necessarily endorse every thing in every book. There. That is my disclaimer.
This shelf houses current homeschool materials...
This is our huge bookcase downstairs. I have been organizing many of our books on these shelves.
I have all my Jane Austen upstairs but on these shelves I have my Jane Austen sequels...I really like the Diaries of Mr. Darcy, Mr. Knightly, Capt. Wentworth...by Amanda Grange. They give you the story from the man's point of view! Also my Mitford books! Finally a place to keep them where I can just grab one!
Some Beverly Lewis and my Lori Wick books. I am finding them bit by bit at used bookstores, thrift stores, etc.
These are my Nancy Drew books. When I was around 10 my mom signed up for a summer book club for me. These books came every two weeks maybe and have two stories in them. I would finish them in just a few days. My poor mom - I was always clamoring for something to read! Now I am reading them aloud to the younger set.
My Dee Henderson books...love those O'Malley's!
Thomas Kinkade, Emilie Barnes, who was a mentor to me through her books, Karla Dornacher - I love her art and the sweet words that accompany her art in her books.
Gilbert Morris - I have most of the House of Winslow...but stopped trying to keep up. I have all the Cheney Duval books he wrote. Then he started writing them with his daughter, and after three books they stopped. I wished they had continued, I felt as if it was unfinished.
Precious books - Little House and Anne of Green Gables.
Cherry Ames, a few Nancy Drew, Cheaper by the Dozen and Belles on their Toes...
Grace Livingston Hill, G.A.Henty, Hinds Feet in High Places.
Well, that is all for now...many, many of the characters in these books are dear old friends. It is fun to read them over again and remember why you liked them in the first place.
Another day I will show you my main school bookcase....
