My Book Shelf

I love books. Reading is my favorite hobby. I especially enjoy reading nonfiction and self-help books. I learn so much and am strengthened in my walk by reading them.

With this in mind here is a list of some of my favorites. While most are Christian, a few aren’t, but are nevertheless helpful. As time goes by I hope to add more to the list.

I hope that you will choose one (or several) to read.*

If you have a book that you have particularly enjoyed but is not listed here, please let me know. I would love to share your suggestions with my other readers.

*While I have linked these books to their author’s website when available, and encourage you to buy them through their site, some author’s sites do not permit me to link to them. Also, I recognize that not everyone can afford to do that. There are several online sites from which to buy used books. Also, many books are readily available in local thrift stores and used book stores. Whatever your choice, the important thing is that you read.
