Thanks for the Recommendations! :>

These are the recommendations I have right now. I will continue to add new ones as they are presented. Appreciate your help. Some have sent suggestions for books I've already read. I won't list those so don't think it's an oversight. There have been a few suggestions that just didn't appeal to me and I didn't list those either. If you come up with any more suggestions, please let me know.

Man, those first three look awesome!! Just kidding. I think the fourth one looks really good. Maybe I'll add it to my list.

I liked Timeline too. And, of course I loved The Peacegiver.

I need to recommend Kitchen Table Wisdom and My Grandfather's Blessings both by Rachel Naomi Remen.

As far as novels are concerned, I loved Snow Falling on Cedars, Cold Mountain and I Heard the Owl Call My Name.

Of course the Frankenstien series by Dean Koontz.

It's Smurthwaite not Simurthwaite. I liked "Snow Falling on Cedars too, and Katharine Hall Page's mystery series is great. I'm reading Inkheart right now because katie recommended it so highly. But I'm definitely checking out both you and Alyson's lists before I go to the library again.
