Book Recommendations

Although I have a pile of unread books under my bed, I am always on the lookout for interesting reading material. Reading widely inspires my own writing.

So, I would love for you to suggest some books for me to read. Christian or secular, I don't mind. What books have you particularly enjoyed and would like to recommend to me?

List as many as you like.....please list away.

Well, you could join a group of us across Australia having a tilt at Calvin's Institutes over a period of several years.

But if that is too much for you, I have just enjoyed "The Chronicles of Narnia" (a joy to read as an adult), "The Guernsery Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" by Ann Schaffer was a delight and I have been told by two people, whose opinions I respect, that "Gilead" by Marilynne Robinson is the book for me to read this year!

There's a start.

I keep track of my readings on the right side of my blog (well, plus a deeplink, that is ;-)...)

If you´re going for fun, I really enjoyed Bill Cosbys books, eg "Fatherhood" or "Time flies". I do have two here still to read, yay :-)
It´s all about everyday life, from a positive point of view.

If you enjoy learning new stuff on the run I can recommend Bas Haring, he writes easy-going, too (well the one book I got, it was about AI).

Tim Allen is a great writer, too, I think.
