Top Ten Tuesday:

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday centers on recommendations.  This is a tricky subject because of times when people recommend books to me, interest ends with the conversation.  I either forget to follow through or know it’s not something I would like.

Nevertheless, I do follow through every once in a while and here is a list of some my favorites.  (Interestingly enough, a high number of books on this list are fairly progressive Christian nonfiction.)

1.) A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller

2.) Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis

3.) Strong Poison by Dorothy Sayers
