For my birthday this year, my husband gave me some book buying money–which is basically the perfect gift. So just about every Saturday, we head to a different Half Price Books where I roam the entire store and find a few new treasures. And my sweet husband chases our toddler around the store and keeps her from carrying all the books around. She loves books like her mama! It’s basically the best.
I am really into growing my personal library lately. And that often means buying books I have already read and loved. Isn’t owning books the best?
Here are my most recent finds.
A few classics:
Middlemarch by George Eliot
Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis
A few children’s favorites:
Princess Academy by Shannon Hale
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Some favorite Christian fiction:
With Every Breath by Elizabeth Camden
The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron
A Sparrow in Terezin by Kristy Cambron
Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay
A favorite Pulitzer Prize winner:
Gilead by Marilynne Robinson
A NY Times Bestseller (that I haven’t read yet):
Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly
