I’ve already admitted that I am a book-worm. You know by now that I have far too many unread books (mostly novels) lurking around in the corners of my house. My shelves are also stacked with books that I have read at least once (sometimes several times – “Jane Eyre” by Charlotte Bronte springs immediately to mind), but that I know I will open again one day and bask in the greatness of their words. There is sometimes nothing more to this than falling in love with the characters or the beauty of the writing itself. Then sometimes it is because a particular book came along at a specific point in my life and spoke right to the centre of my heart, of my soul, of my journey.
I’m sharing many of my thoughts along the journey with you so it feels right that I should share with you some of the books that have made a difference to my journey. Maybe they will have the same impact on you. Maybe you will dismiss them because you are in a different place on your journey. Or maybe you just can’t or don’t want to read. If it is the latter let me encourage you to take a step to reading more – there is nothing quite like fully immersing yourself in the world created in a novel.
My hope is that from one of the posts in my “Books for the Journey” category you might find one book that touches your heart or challenges you in some way along your own journey through life. If it does, I would love to know about it so please post your thoughts up here. And do add suggestions of books that have encouraged you in return.
Must go – the books are calling me.
