A house without books is like a room without windows. (Heinrich Mann)

As long as I can remember I have loved to read, but my obsession with books started sometime in college. There is nothing like the feeling of finishing a good book and beginning another one. The Sunflower by Simon Wiesenthal was amazing, and only took me a couple of hours to get thru. Wiesenthal, imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp, was forced to listen to a wounded Nazi soldier plead for forgiveness for all of his crimes. It's a moral struggle of repentance and forgiveness. Incredible!
I just started Pastor's Daughter by W. Heimburg and I love the smell of this old book! I definitely don't have as much time to read as I used to, but it has made me appreciate the time I do have to curl up with a good book.
So, my question to you is...
What book would you grab if you had a couple of hours?

read every night before I go to bed. Starting a new book that I picked up, in March, at International House of Prayer, "Song of The Bride" by Jeanne Guyon. The back cover says it's the greatest love story ever written. "Allow your heart to draw near to the heart of God on this journey to the Father's love." I'll let you know how it goes.
