I have loved to read since I was ten years old. My love for reading started with the Hardy Boys series. A few years later my passion for history was kindled after discovering a series of biographies written by Harold Lamb. Around this same time, my brother Brad and I spent countless hours randomly reading entries in the World Book Encyclopedia.
Monday's are my day off. I hope to spend part of it reading. But, before I get to that, I wanted to share with you ten treasures that I've found along the way.
I can't recall exactly how I encountered Jacob's works. It may have been at the Ramsey County library in Roseville. I start off my list with this volume because I needed Jacob's reminder: It's okay to read what you want.
History... Theology... How could I resist! I loved God's Hotel so much that I've given at 5 copies away.
How much did I love this book? I contacted Zena through Twitter to encourage her to write a sequel.
How could any bibliophile resist? I couldn't!
I owned a copy in high school. Now repurchased; it's next on my "To Read" list.
Found this gem on vacation in Santa Fe two years ago.
I could have put almost any book that Yancey's written on my list.
Truly magnificent. Written by a St. Paul native.
Once again, I can't recall how I found this. It was probably while perusing the shelves of a Barnes & Noble.
I could go on and on, but I said that I would stop at ten. Promise kept!
