    What are your favorite books?

    So what are they?

    My top five are:
    1) "The Road to Unafraid" subtitled "How the Army's Top Ranger Faced Fear and Found Courage through Black Hawk Down and Beyond."
    2) "The Thinking Toolbox" by Nathaniel and Hans Bluedorn
    3) "Born to Trot" by Marguerite Henry
    4) "Misty of Chincoteague" by Marguerite Henry
    5) "Stormy, Misty's Foal" by Marguerite Henry

    The guy who wrote that book came to my church a year or so ago and spoke to us! He seemed kinda...full of himself... But maybe he was just nervous. Super random!

    I read a ton so I don't really have "favorite books" since I have about twenty all time favorites. Haha

    But, five of them are:

    For The Love of a Dog by Patricia McConnell

    The Other End of The Leash by Patricia McConnell (I really just love everything this author has ever written, but those are my two absolute favorites)

    The Eragon series (dorky, I know, but I want a dragon! And they crack me up with quotes like "he punched him in the armpit." How does that happen? Hahahaha)

    Shy Boy by Monty Roberts (also slightly dorky, but an excellent read)

    The Icemark Chronicles series (I just really like books where unexpected people annihilate bad guys and are "transformed" into who they are supposed to be... haha)

    Very cool! I'd love to meet him someday. =) I read his book before watching "Black Hawk Down." All through the movie I was like, "Where's Struecker? Why isn't he one of the main characters? Common! Don't you guys in Hollywood know that he was a key player in the operation???"

    I forgot to say that "The Road to Unafraid" was written by Jeff Struecker.
