Recommended Reading

I absolutely love good literature. My mom spent hundreds of hours reading aloud to my brothers and me as we grew up. I wish I were a more disciplined reader now, but I’m working on it! Here are some books I recommend. Be sure to check back, as I will continue to update this list. I have personally read/listened to all of these books unless otherwise noted.
