We have reached the end of this series celebrating books.
I must admit, I have talked and written more about books than
I thought possible.
This series will forever hold a sweet spot in my heart when I reflect on
and continuing the conversation on Facebook.
No matter how much technology changes,
you simply must give your whole attention to reading a book.
Whether you like to fold back the cover of a paperback or touch
a screen to turn a page, you can’t read a book and do another activity
simultaneously, at least not very well.
If I could open my front door and welcome each one of you inside.
If we could sit in the living room warmed by a fireplace
filled with flames of gold and coals glowing orange.
We would sit with a stack of literature between us and one
by one I would offer you the gift of a good book.
Oh how I wish we could.
Sometimes magic only resides in books, so the next best thing
is to offer you my virtual book stack.
Grab a seat and pretend there is a roaring fire in your midst
and I will attempt to share the contents of my towering book stack*.
Some of the best books come in small packages:
If you ever dreamed of being Harriet the Spy,
Nancy Drew or Encyclopedia Brown:
When you need to believe in magic:
When a tear-jerker is good for the soul:
When you want a book to tell
the truth about life, the joys,
sorrows, doubts and hopes:
Run don’t walk to get these books:
When you need to read something honest
about addiction for yourself or someone
When you want to learn from monks
without escaping to a monastery:
When you are afraid:
When church makes you feel like
When you need solid timeless wisdom:
When you desire discipline to
When your soul cries out for rest
and you don’t know how:
When you want a book combining
countless genres and is inspired
by the Creator. I give you the
Book of all Books:
What book would you offer me from your book stack?
*It has taken me several days to finish this post,
mainly because I put too much pressure on myself to
include EVERY book. This list represents what has
crossed my mind or hasn’t been mentioned in a
previous post during this series.
There are more books to read and many books I will
recall moments after pressing publish. Grrr.
But for now, this is the stack of books given to
you as possibilities to behold along life’s journey.
This post is part of the 31 days…yet again series.
