I love books. I received several books for my birthday and Christmas in December, mostly knitting, at least one gardening. I have a friend who's recently moved her office and cleaned out some books and gave them to me, and my in-laws are moving. They are cleaning stuff out and giving us books. While BFJ snoozed on the couch the other night, I stacked the books up on the mantel. Actually, I still had half a box to go when I quit. Here's what I've been given in the last three months:

Oops, I didn't draw an arrow to the one I'm reading, that would be The First Circle by Solzhenitsyn. I also usually have a Bible and a glass of water on this table, too. I love having a bunch of different books to look at before bed, especially if I'm not in the middle of a gripping story. And I have a stack of quilting and knitting magazines and seed catalogs on the floor by my bed. We also have two bookshelf cases full of books downstairs. Maybe three! I'm very glad our boys like to read, too. There's just nothing like a good book, is there?
What is your all-time favorite book or series?
