Follow Friday!! Books to Share!!

It’s Friday! Time for follow Friday, which is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.  Since this is a follow hop, if you decide to follow me, please let me know, leave a comment with your link, and I will follow back!  With this hop I am following Book Savvy Babe.

For more rules and how to participate, please visit one of the host blogs – Thank You!

Now for this week’s question:

Question: In keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

This was a relatively easy question for me to answer.
My two favourite books that I would like everyone to read are:
 
“Mary Jane” by Dorothy Sterling

“The Return of the Prodigal Son”

by Henri Nouwen

 

 

 

So, Reader, what are YOUR two favourite books that you think everyone needs to read? Please share them with us!

Choose Joy!

Patricia

  1. Look like really good books, I am pretty sure they are on my TBR, but I haven’t read them yet. Thanks so much for the shout out! Hope you have had fun on your first meme/hop! Book Savvy Babe

    • Hi, Book Savvy Babe!

      Yes, I have had fun on my first meme/hop, thank you! Actually, more than I expected to! It is really nice to connect with new people, and have new people connect with me.

      Thanks for your support, Heather!

  2. Hi, there!

    Hi, there! I found you through the FF hop, and I must say, your blog is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! The content is GREAT, too! I can see that you’re a very spiritual person, and I can resonate with that.

    Now, as for these books you’ve picked — they’re both wonderful choices! I’ve hear of Nouwen, but have yet to read any of his books. He’s supposed to be excellent, and somewhat similar to Thomas Merton, whom I have yet to read as well…..Gotta get on the ball! Lol.

    The other book is totally unfamiliar to me, but I intend to remedy that! I think the plot is a very interesting as well as thought-provoking one. It’s also very spiritual indeed.

    • Hi, Maria!

      Thank you so much for visiting my blog! And thank you, for your very kind comments. I appreciate them so much.

      Nouwen is excellent – and wrote so many books! This one of his is extra special, and very surprising actually. It really changed the way I viewed The Prodigal Son story – revved it up a bit for me.

      I do have a couple of Merton books, but I have not read more than a few pages of each. His thoughts are truly spirit driven, but not always clear to my brain. I guess it is just not the time for me to read Merton. Henri Nouwen is much easier to read and understand, much.

      The book “Mary Jane” is one I bought in Grade 5, from the Scholastic Book Club, through my school. I loved it then, and I love it now. Actually, I posted a book review on it when I first started this blog. https://thejoyofthewrittenword.wordpress.com/2011/07/29/book-review-mary-jane-dorothy-sterling/ I know you can still find copies, but mostly through secondhand book sellers. I am thinking of searching for an additional copy, as mine is clearly “well-loved”!!

      I visited your site, Maria, and love it! Very, very pretty, and right now so Christmas and winter focused, which is nice to do. Thank you for posting my blog button/badge. I was so startled! I have never seen my button on anyone else’s site! Thank you!

      I could not see a Follow by Email button, but I did sign up with GFC and RSS Posts. I haven’t figured out RSS yet, but I am getting there!!

      Wishing you Joy, Maria!
