Carol’s Favorite Books

Favorite Books:
My love affair with books began as a small child. My grandmother sent me books she thought I would enjoy, and that’s when my collection started. Today I have books where other people keep their linens and dishes. After all, what’s more important?  If I find a book I enjoy, I want to read it again and again. My favorites come from many genres, and I’ve usually read other books by the same authors, but here are my top favorites:
