I thought it would be fun to do a reading edition...So, here are five reading related facts about yours truly. Enjoy and be sure to share some facts of your own about YOU! 

Sidney Chambers is my literary crush. He takes theology seriously without being uptight or proud about it. He loves jazz. He cares about people. He's just an all around GOOD guy.

Rhett Butler, Mr. Rochester, and Delores Umbridge are the characters who upset me so much that I had to put the book down until I was ready to face them again. They didn't ruin the book for me, but each of them came close.

E.B. White, Mary Higgins Clark, Madeleine L'Engle, and F. Scott Fitzgerald are the top four writers who inspire me most. They are all very different, but what they have in common is a knowledge about how people think and a willingness to write honestly.  

The Beautiful and Damned, Persuasion, To Kill A Mockingbird, and The Outsiders are classics that I think everyone should read. It's never too late to dig into the classics. If they've intimidated you, begin with something written in the first half of the 20th Century. It's a great place to start!

Literary fiction, mysteries, thrillers, theology, and biographies are my go-to genres. Every now and then I'll pick up something else, but more often than not, these are the books you'll find floating around my house and car and bag.

What are some reading related things about you that I probably don't know?


  1. I love how much you've studied different authors and understand their styles and how their minds work. I have been so busy that I generally read for entertainment and haven't given too much thought to things behind the scenes like that like I used to.

  2. I feel like I'm an illiterate moron because I only recognized some of the authors/titles mentioned haha. You're so well-read and I love it!

  3. Oh man, Delores Umbridge was a hard one for me too! So cruel!

    And you know, you mentioned Rhett Butler which made me realize that while I love Gone with the Wind (the movie)... I don't think I've ever read the book. I should do that!


I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
