Recommended Reads

“I have loved to read since I was a kid.

One of my favorite memories is going to the local library in the summer and checking out such large stacks of books that the librarian expressed doubts that I would be able to manage to get them all home!  I’d sit contentedly reading for hours, days on end.

“In looking back I’d have to say that adventure stories such as from Robert Louis Stevenson and Rudyard Kipling, and the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew mysteries stand out as favorites.”

Below contains titles ranging from ancient wisdom offered by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to sweet and fun fare from the series by  Alexander McCall Smith’s  on “No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency.” 

And of course,  the entire Harry Potter series!

Periodically I will be adding and updating this list, so check back in.
