LDS Books I've Read Meme

Inspired by the national bestselling books meme I found over on Framed and Booked, my friend Josi Kilpack asked several of us to contribute to a list of favorite LDS books. The rules are simple:

Bold=I read it

Highlighted=I’ve never heard of it (I still can't figure out how to highlight, so I'm going to capitalize.)

Italics= A favorite that stayed with me a long time

And I'm going to add another rule. If you've heard of it, and mean to read it, but haven't yet, then put an asterisk after it.

What can I say, Josi -- I'm brilliant. :)

You've read quite a few, Connie! Thanks for sharing your list.

I'm going to do this meme on my blog as well but I'm copying an idea from someone who did the bestseller meme. Come on over and check it out. BTW, I can't believe how many of these I've never heard of. And then there's ones I can't remember if I read or not. It will probably take me a while to look them up to see if I can jog a spark in my dim brain.

Heather B. Moore said...

Hey. I want to do this too. Stay tuned :)
