TTT: Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Loved So Much I Had to Get a Copy for My Personal Library

Note: I don't often buy books, being a fan of libraries. If I do buy a book for myself, it is because of the likelihood it will be reread. I'd hoped to photograph my actual copies then realized that some are boxed up as my overstuffed bookshelf was just tidied up a few weeks ago. Oh well.

Whistling Season by Ivan Doig

Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

The complete set of Jane Austen novels

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

The whole Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis

Sonnets from the Portuguese and Other Love Poems by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, illustrated by Adolf Hallman

Tear Soup: A Recipe for Healing After Loss by Pat Schwiebert and Chuck DeKlyen

Dangerous Journey: The Story of Pilgrim's Progress by Paul Bunyan, selected by Oliver Hunkin, illustrated by Alan Parry.
