Books for Bookworms: Find some new faves!

I can’t imagine a man really enjoying a book and reading it only once.
— C.S. Lewis

I love this quote by C.S. Lewis.  I’m a fan of rereading some of my favorite stories. And sometimes I will read a book, and know that it’s a keeper, and I’ll be rereading it again in the future. Then there are those kind of books that really speak to a fellow bookworm and gives us all the warm fuzzies.

I’d Rather Be Reading by Anne Bogel – The title alone says it all and when you read this book, you will find a kindred spirit and find affirmation of love of books and reading.

Becoming Mrs. Lewis by Patti Callahan – I can’t imagine quoting C.S. Lewis and not being a fan of his writing, or find solace in the messages he presented. This book not only is a great work of fiction based on a true story, but it represents an understanding and strong bond of friendship between fellow readers and writers.

Head in the Clouds by Karen Witemeyer – How many of us have been accused of not being aware of our surroundings while engrossed in a book?


How about the books that pay tribute to some of your favorite stories?

Love, Lace and Minor Alterations by V. Joy Palmer

Can’t Help Falling by Kara Isaac

The Austen Escape by Katherine Reay


What about librarians and the wall to wall bookshelves?

A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

True to You by Becky Wade

Wonderland Creek by Lynn Austin

Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson


And finally the books that encourage us and teach us!

In Good Company by Jen Turano – Our heroine, Millie Longfellow reads the dictionary and attempts to use a new word in her daily conversations. How inspiring is that for readers and future writers?!

An Elegant Façade by Kristi Ann Hunter – And last but not least, I added this to remind us that reading is a luxury, a privilege and a blessing, and not something we should take for granted. Sometimes, it’s beyond our control when we can no longer enjoy this gift.  With that said, stay tuned for great audiobooks in upcoming issues.
