Our Favorite Reads

We love to read and also love to share great books we find with others!

You won’t find the Bible on this list, but it goes without saying, that’s the most important book and in a category all its own. We’ve grouped the books by category and alphabetized by title within those categories. You’ll find next to each title links to sites where you can buy the book. Also, if there’s an audiobook link, we’ve listened to it and loved it.

There are some books on this list that may have small items we don’t agree with. However, we feel there is too much quality content to just overlook them. So, we recommend them regularly and now recommend them to you. We trust you’ll be able to eat the meat of great content, and throw out the bones.

Happy reading, and we hope you find a couple new favorites of your own!
