Good Reads


Here are some of the blogs I enjoy following:

Adelle Gabrielson - boymom, writer, shoe lover
Adrienne Marie Pollock (From the Editor's Desk) - good grammar tips and editor stories
Angela Wallace - urban fantasy author, gluten-free living, cat stories
Bear Ears (Audry Nicklin) - knitting pattern designer, adventurer, and yarn enthusiast
Chatting at the Sky (Emily P. Freeman) - finding inspiration and peace in everyday life
Marcy Kennedy - insights on writing and stories
Rabia Gale - homeschool mom and author of fairy tales with a twist
Tami Clayton - travel, English actors, and word-related thoughts


The top 10 books I'd want with me on a desert island:

  1. A very large study Bible (with Greek and Hebrew word studies, of course)
  2. The Lord of the Rings trilogy by J.R.R. Tolkien (not cheating: they come in 1-volume sets!)
  3. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo 
  4. The Complete Works of Shakespeare
  5. The Great Divorce by C.S. Lewis
  6. An anthology of poetry (Ha! I could do anything with enough anthologies! But it would have to include Frost, Dickinson, Wordsworth, Keats, Yeats, Donne, Herbert, and Sidney...)
  7. Purity of Heart is to Will One Thing by Soren Kierkegaard
  8. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
  9. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
  10. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
