I NEED TO GO BACK AN GET THE LINK TO THIS.  I DIDN’T REALIZE I DIDN’T HAVE IT!

 

“Per Emily’s request in a previous comment, I thought I’d post a short list of my absolute favorite books. This one is entirely fiction, mostly novels with a few children’s tales thrown in for their rare quality of wonder. God in his mercy knew I would need story to come to terms with life and godliness and to be honest, these tales have been some of my most poignant spiritual mentors. But they are also my rest and delight, my comfort after long, dusty days, my friends in the twilight of evening. You probably know many of these, but perhaps you’ll find a new literary adventure, and that is always worthwhile.”
