Our Top 15 Favorite Books

Words cannot express how thankful I am that our son Riley has learned how to read!  Thankfully he has shown some desire to read on his own accord.  I don't have to push too hard to get him to read during the day, although, if I don't monitor his choices in books, he would choose a Star Wars book every time.  A typical choice for a 7 year old boy!

I am quite the book worm!  In fact, reading can be quite a stumbling block for me because there are times that I cannot put the book down to get done what I need to do!  That nagging feeling that I know I need to be doing the dishes, cooking dinner, or getting school started gets pushed back in the corner of my mind till I get to "a good stopping point". 

Between my husband Chris, Riley and myself we have quite a wide variety of subject matter that we like to read.  With Christmas coming up soon, you may have someone on your list that loves to read like we do.  So we thought we would each pick 5 of our Top 15 favorite books we like to read and share them with you.  If you see one on our list that may be a possible gift for someone, click the book title and it will take you to where you can check the amount and availability.  You can even purchase it if you are ready!
