From my list of books, the ones I’d recommend to you are the following:
If you like Christian novels, the best series I have read in a long time were Mindy Starns Clark’s “Million Dollar Series.” Titled “A Penny for Your Thoughts, Don’t Take Any Wooden Nickels, etc.
If you like history, Flexner’s series on Washington was off to a great start for me, however, my library totally messed things up this year and didn’t bother to let us know that their phone notification system wasn’t working… blah blah blah. The whole thing was a giant irritation. But the first book in the series was great and I look forward to reading the rest!
Ravi Zacharias’s book The Grand Weaver wins the Best Book of 07 Award from MIP. I’d recommend it to any of you.
