An unexpected gem recently came my way. For as long as I can remember, my grandmother and her sisters have been devoted readers (I wonder where I get it from?) I have many memories of them reading and discussing books.
One of my great-aunts is getting ready to move to a smaller house near her children and during the packing process, she called me. She had 3 boxes of books, and wanted me to keep what I wanted from the box and then donate the rest.
I drove out and picked up the boxes this weekend. We had company, so I only got to open them last night. Friends, it is a treasure trove!
I knew these ladies read a lot of Christian fiction, and these boxes are full to the brim with all sorts of books. There’s some non-fiction mixed in, but these are mostly fiction books. So far, most appear to be from the 1980s and 1990s. There are some classics I remember seeing as a child, such as Love Comes Softly, This Present Darkness or the House of Winslow books.
However, there are lots of new-to-me treasures to discover, too. And that’s where readers come in. I plan to read through the books here, and see what new treasures I discover. There’s a pretty wide selection, so if you can think of any older (pre-2000) Christian novels that you’d like to see featured on here, I’ll happily read them if I’ve got them. Just let me know in comments. Thanks!
