While composing last week’s blog post on my Recommended Reading List, I scoured the internet for book lists.  I was jogging my memory to see if there were any books that weren’t on my book shelf that had changed my life.  Turns out that yes, there were a few.  But there became a growing list of books that are now on my list of books to read.  I thought I would share these with you this week, so we all can have a reference when it’s time for a new book.  🙂  Enjoy!
