In honor of World Book Day: My top 25 books of all time

Today is World Book I thought it would be a good time to re-post my list of my favorite books of all time.

By the way: this list doesn't include the Holy Bible, which I feel goes without saying is the greatest Book of all, and actually is really much more than a book.

Here it is, originally posted in October 2005:

(in no particular order)

1.Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott--really kicked off my lifelong love of reading

2. The Chronicles of Narnia, by C. S. Lewis

3. Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte

4. Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte

5. Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell

6. Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens

7. Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen

8. Red Knights from Hy Brasil, by Christine Savery (read here about how I re-discovered this childhood favorite)

9. Auntie Robbo, by Anne Scott Moncrieff (read here about how I re-discovered this book)

10. The Screwtape Letters, by C. S. Lewis

11. Villette, by Charlotte Bronte

12. Through Gates of Splendor, by Elisabeth Elliot

13. Shadow of the Almighty, by Elisabeth Elliot

14. The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom

15. The Persecutor, by Sergei Kourdakov

16. New Moon Rising, by Eugenia Price

17. This Present Darkness, by Frank Perretti

18. My Life Without God, by William Murray

19. The Shell Seekers, by Rosamunde Pilcher

20. The Emerald Ballad Series, by B. J. Hoff--reinforced my love of all things Irish, and showed me just how good Christian fiction can be

21. The Mark of the Lion Series, by Francine Rivers--introduced me to a remarkable writer, and reinforced to me just how good Christian fiction can be

22. Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyan

23. Streams in the Desert, edited by L. B. Cowman

24. Not My Will, by Francena H. Arnold

25. Anne of Green Gables, by L. M. Montgomery

Hello from the UK. I have so enjoyed reading your blog and looking at the photos.
It is a Beautiful spring day here. I have the doors and windows open, and the birds are twittering around the bird table in the garden. Sunday lunch is cooking slowly in the oven and our black labrador is standing guard in case anything should drop in her direction. My husband is cutting the lawn (first cut of the year) Berlated Happy new year to you
