Waiting on My Bookshelf

Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VIII — David Starkey
…..I started this one, but had to return it to the library before finishing. Excellent historical writing style!

Emma and Mansfield Park — Jane Austen
…..My go-to author when I get discouraged by unnecessary explicitness of contemporary fiction.

The Poseidon Adventure — Paul Gallico

Anna Karenina — Leo Tolstoy

Literally, The Best Language Book Ever: Annoying Words and Abused Phrases You Should Never Use Again — Paul Yeager

The Poisonwood Bible — Barbara Kingsolver

The Gold Coast — Nelson DeMille

Jane Eyre — Charlotte Bronte

Praise Habit — David Crowder
….Crowder is the front man for one of my favorites, David Crowder Band

The Host — Stephenie Meyer

The Great Thoughts — Compiled by George Seldes

The Three Miss Margarets — Louise Shaffer

Robert Mitchum “Baby I Don’t Care” — Lee Server

Out of Silent Planet, Perelandra, and That Hideous Strength (Space Trilogy) — C.S. Lewis

The Great Divorce, Mere Christianity, The Four Loves and The Dark Tower and Other Stories — C.S. Lewis
Lewis’ work is another of my standby reads.

I have read this one, but just acquired my own copy. Definitely worth another look!
