So one of my students at PSCS has asked me to compile a list of my favorite books, something she can consider over time, perhaps as supplemental reading when she is at college this fall (as if college students needed more reading material). This brought me to my bookshelves at home and I took this picture of shelf #1.
On the far left is “To Kill a Mockingbird,” sure to be on the list. I’ve read the book many times and cry every time I get to the line, “Hey, Boo.”
I’m not sure if it will make the cut, but also in there is “I Heard the Owl Call My Name.” Want to appreciate life and understand wisdom a little more, check out that book.
Toward the right is one of my favorite books, “Laughing in the Hills.” It’s a philosophical look at one man’s experience trying his hand at being a professional horse race handicapper. I read it every few years and love it every time.
