Thirteen of My Favorite Books
- The Fountainhead---Ayn Rand. I first read it in College. I can't say that I buy the philosophy, but it did make me think.
- East of the Sun---Barbara Bickmore. Just a great story---about a nurse who goes to Africa as a missionary and stays there for life.
- When Bad Things Happen to Good People---Rabbi Kushner. It helped shape my theology
- All This and Heaven Too--Rachel Field. I've always enjoyed historical fiction--this is one of the best, I think.
- The Clan of the Cave Bear---Jean Auel. I just loved this series. So much research. It is almost historical fiction.
- The Valley of Horses---Jean Auel. Ditto. I read all of them, but these two are my favorites.
- A Walk in the Woods---Bill Bryson. This is so funny, and yet poignant, about his walking the Appalachian Trail.
- A World of Ideas---Bill Moyers. It stretched me.
- A Man in Full---Tom Wolfe. My men are quail hunters, and they say Wolfe "nailed" the plantation hunting.
- Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden---Emily Whaley. Just the sweet musings of a lovely southern lady
- The North and The South---John Jakes. Another good story
- Emily Dickinson: Selected Poems. I enjoy the American poets, but she is my favorite.
- Southern Table---Frank Stitt's cookbook. I enjoy the prose as much as the recipes.
