I see some of MY favorites on your list. I'm reading an interesting book called, Chasing Francis. Have you heard of it?

Great list! I love Elizabeth Goudge, C.S. Lewis and several others on your list. Books are little worlds unto themselves. Happy reading!

I see you're reading a book by Frederica Mathewes-Green. I read Facing East years ago and loved her inside look at Eastern Orthodoxy. Also, I especially love Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte.
