I can't say that one book or another is my favorite. Some books seem to call your attention from the shelf saying "Choose me!". Others are gifted to you by a friend, family member and even a few strangers. So for now, I'll give you a few of the books that have found me at just the right moment...
I decided to go back to college as an adult student because of this book. Really.
Circle of Quiet
This one caught me up in the story and impacted my reality.
This one was given to me by a friend during a time of transition. It took a little while for me to pick up, but once I got started it was healing and helpful to read.
One summer I was reading this book at the beach, realized after the fact that I'd met one of the folks from this community earlier in the spring. Later that summer I met the author and by fall I had the privilege to sit down and have lunch with the author.
I came across this little novel at a thrift store and read it on Christmas break. It was fun and you may enjoy it too.
My Name is Russell Fink

The Message Remix
I love this book. I never read it as a child, but bought it for my kids when they were little. Now they are teens and this book is now on my shelf for good.
