I love books!

March 12, 2010

I bought this bag when I was on holidays recently. I didn’t buy it because I wanted the quotes to be taken literally but rather they convey the fact that I really do like books.

As long as I can remember I have always loved to read. In fact at one point in my life reading became a form of escapism. I can remember feeling disappointed when I finished a book because it meant I would have to face the real world again.

Books have enriched my life and taught me more than I could have learnt by experience alone. They have truly changed my life and I don’t just mean Christian books. I don’t have a problem reading books written by people who have a different belief system to me. In fact I often find it fascinating reading about their views, as it makes me reflect more deeply on my own.

So…read any good books lately?

  1. I just read three wonderful books by George MacDonald — The Light Princess, The Baronet's Song, and The Shepherd's Castle. His characters are so well developed, and they have such integrity. He is talking from a very different time, but he has so much to say to our modern world. Have you read them?

  3. Thanks Ginger for the recommendation as I haven't read these books, but I'll keep my eye out for them.
