  1. Oh I love this list! Thank you so much for creating it! I already found a few books I’m going to read the reviews for and probably buy! 🙂 And I totally agree with you, being stranded inside a library or bookstore would be a little bit of heaven for me 😉

      • -Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference by Philip Yancey (haven’t read anything by him yet)

        -Cure For the Common Life by Max Lucado (love his books!)

        -The Cries of the Heart by Ravi Zacharias

        -The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom *

        -Kissed The Girls And Made Them Cry by Lisa Bevere

        *Those are just some of the one’s that seem interesting to me. 🙂 I’m so excited to start reading some of them!!

      • Yeah!!! I love Max Lucado too. Philip Yancey is one of my favorite authors. He speaks with such honesty. Ravi Z is good…one of the greatest apologists of our time. I’m reading The Hiding Place right now! I’ve seen the movie. It’s gripping! Lisa Bevere’s book is great for single gals. You had some books I wanted to read too! I have to look back at your list and write them down. 🙂 I always get excited about a new book to read. heehee.
