Books I Have Read
Book Lust by Nancy Pearl- A great book full of book lists. I like to use this when I'm in a "I can't find anything to read mood. It's arranged by category: sci fi, fantasy, etc.
Eats, Shoots and Leaves by Lynne Truss- Yet another grammar book; this one is hilarious, too.
How To Read A Book by Mortimer J. Adler and Charles Van Doren- This book is all about the art of reading, from speed reading to inspectional reading. It's definitely a tome, but a well written tome and I enjoyed it.
The Novel 100 by Daniel S. Burt- An in-depth review of the greatest 100 novels.
Honey for a Child's Heart by Gladys Hunt and Barbara Hampton- There is definitely a Christian undertone, but the books recommended are not really Christian. I love the book recommendations. Each chapter is a category like Adventure and Suspense or Mystery.
So Many Books, So Little Time: A Year of Passionate Reading by Sara Nelson-I loved this book. I checked it out of the library and devoured it. It is much more autobiographical than any of the books listed above.

On My To-Read List
How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines by Thomas C. Foster- Whew! Yes, that really is the title.
Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading by Maureen Corrigan
Howards End is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home by Susan Hill
Anguished English: An Anthology of Assaults Upon Our Language by Richard Lederer and Bill Thompson- Apparently, this is another extremely funny grammar book.
