In constructing my About Me page I thought I should put a graphic together with my favourite books. Actually I stole the idea from another author. My conclusion was this is really hard. I looked at my bookcase and thought about all the books people borrowed and never gave back and I even went through my Kindle. You probably feel the same way I do about creating such a list. How do you choose? Isn’t it constantly changing? What do you base the list on? Pleasure? Motivation? All of the above? To answer these questions I would say ‘Yes’ but these books I would say are the ones that changed my thinking about the world and ones I feel went into some space in my head that I extract from on a regular basis. Most are non-fiction that I love to read and reread, some are spiritual, crafty, inspirational while others are YA and romance. Either way I hope you enjoy and here’s the list starting from the top left:
