Oops! I forgot to post a question yesterday.
This weekend I attended and presented at DBU’s annual academic conference. I love this conference. I go every year (that I’m in the country), and it’s always a lovely family reunion with all of my favorite professors and former classmates, as well as a source of alma mater pride as I interact with current students’ papers.
The theme of this year’s keynote lectures was “Tolle Lege ‘Pick Up and Read’: On Books and Reading,” presented by the wonderfully engaging Byron Borges who owns the kind of bookstore I wish I had in my community. Fortunately, they sell online!
Over at Hearts & Minds Books, Byron keeps a wonderful blog (mostly about books and brief book recommendations), where you can find his most recent post about his stay in Texas including highlights of the conference, highlights from each of his three lectures, which were great, and of course, the book recommendations he gave during his talks. (I should have known… so much needless, frantic scribbling.)
So, since my weekend was about books and reading, I was going to ask about favorite books, but then I thought, I don’t want to ask another ‘favorites’ question back-to-back like that… But, I should have. Because in delaying in order to think of a better question, I forgot entirely!
So, without further ado, what have been some spiritually influential fiction and non-fiction in your life? Or… favorite books in general… I ❤ books.
Also, I’d love feedback on the notes from Byron’s talks.
