Top 4 Tuesday - 4 Favorite Books

Changing things up a bit this week. Instead of a Top 10, it's only going to be Top 4. Simply because I'm tired and stressed out.

1. Women's Devotional Bible
I honestly found it at a local thrift shop for $1.00. This is one of my favorite Bibles. If you're looking to study the Bible in a year, grab this one and off you go! I use this Bible as a pick-me-up whenever I've had a rough day. Somehow, I find a devotional that applies to the situation and also, one that highlights what may have happened that day. It's a definite must in today's world, trust me!

2. A Tree Grows In Brooklyn
I have read this book 23 times. Every year since I was 11. I never get tired of it. Saying this book is very good is an understatement. The author makes the characters seem so real and unpretentious. Life for Francie doesn't always have a happy ending which is very relatable if you want a book that captures the essence of life.

3. Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life
Reading this book makes me want to meet Amy Rosenthal. I want to take her to lunch and discuss the restaurant's decor, menu offerings, table placement and cloth napkins vs. paper napkins, all in alphabetical order. She has changed the way I look at and categorize my own life, opinions, experiences and even emotions.

4. The Catcher In The Rye
I can't even begin to summarize this book. My all time favorite.
