Some of My Favorite Books



Narrowing down my favorite books was tough, especially when you have an addiction like mine.(I thank my husband for inspiring my love of books)  When I go to the bookstore I can not just buy one and do not get me started about my annual visit to our library sale. YIKES it is a little embarrassing to see all of the books I have strewn in about every corner of our house.  I need to purge my stash,but each book holds a special place in my heart. So, without further ado here are some of my favorites:

Classic Literature:

Wuthering Heights~ Emily Bronte
