I'm not really a  huge reader... but I do really like books and I do really like bloggers.  The other day on twitter I sent out a few tweets for favorite books and this is the list that came back.  Learning people's favorite things is such a fun glimpse into who they are!!  (I hope to - from time to time - do other blogger pick lists... movies, albums, etc.)  

Check out the books & links above and go say hi to these book lovin' ladies.  And tell me... whats YOUR favorite book?  Are you an avid reader?  Where do you like to read?  I really do wish I read more -- teach me your reading ways...


  1. Local Book club? :) You pick. Haha! I have read so many books in my life that it was definitely hard to pick the one that I picked. But it is a classic and it's wholesome and I can't wait to read it to my son. He's a little too young (in my opinion) at age 6.5 to feel that heartbreak from the story just yet. Or maybe I'm just not ready for it. ;)

    But for real, I have always wanted to start a small local book club and if you are at all interested, just let me know. I love books and I love hosting events. Perfect combo!

    And this is definitely a great list. I've read 7 books on here and they were all SO GOOD. Great picks, girls!

  2. I am a huge redeeming love fan. I could probably read it cover to cover in one sitting if I could ignore all else for a day. My favorite place to read is at the library, I don't like to be interrupted!

  3. I love this so much! Oh! I have so many favorite books it's hard to choose. Man... Little Women is great. Oh, and I've read Time Traveler's Wife a few times. Such a fantastic round up, Blair!

  4. Yay! I love to read!! Anything Jane Austen, To Kill A Mockingbird & The Hiding Place are all favorite books!! I am reading Redeeming Love right now & really enjoying it! I might have to check out others from this list too, thanks for sharing!! :)

  5. The hiding place is definitely a favorite.

  6. What a great list! If I EVER had time to read a book again this would be a good place to start ;)

  7. blair, this was such a fun idea. so many good books there.

  8. These are such great selections!
    I have so many favorites, but one of them is The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton. It's a generational mystery that is extremely well-written. Bits of fairy tales entwine with history and mystery.

  9. I looove to read. I used to read SO MUCH, but then I got the time I used to spend reading right before I fall asleep is spent cuddling with my sweet husband. :) I really like classics; Jane Austen's Persuasion, Sherlock Holmes, The Three Musketeers & The Count of Monte Cristo are all favorites. Thanks for sharing these, I definitely added some to my "to read soon" list!

  10. I am such a nerd! I can't live without books. ;) I couldn't ever pick a favorite although I love anything by Jane Austen, Madeline L'Engle, C.S. Lewis, and Tolkien! ;) Hubby got me a Kindle Fire for mother's day this year and it has been so incredible to have my library with me wherever I go. ;)

  11. I rented and read Redeeming Love last summer and liked it so much I bought it. Thinking of re-reading it! :)

  12. Same Kind of Different as Me. Oh I just loved this book. Thanks for the list, sometimes it can be hard to be in the mood to read and not know what to pick up :)

  13. Little Women and any Austen novel...set for life! Love this post. Very fun! xoxo

  14. This is such a great post!!! I saw so many books I've read and loved, and some new ones that I now want to read! My favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird. It was the first book that really spoke to me. I also love Pride & Prejudice. I used to read a ton and now I read blogs :-)

    Thanks for sharing this!

  15. Yay! I love this list. Thanks for including me!
