This week’s topic is just meant for a reader like me who prefers to “try it before you buy it:” Books I’ve Read That I’d Like In My Personal Library. I am aware that once my own manuscripts go out I will start wishing I bought every book I’ve ever read since I will want folks to buy MY books, but the sad truth is I’m a librarian and the pay is not fabulous. I was a single mother, too, so buying has not always been an option. Here are ten books (multi-book series counted as one) I hope to own someday. (These are not presented in any sort of ranked order).
Shelby Foote’s Civil War books–all of them.
Bruce Catton’s Civil War books–all of them, too.
Winston Churchill’s History of the English Speaking Peoples
Churchill’s World War II memoirs–though I’d prefer them to be hardbound.
I collect on Churchill, but somehow haven’t yet acquired this one.
I’d love to have ALL the books in this series, but they are sooooo expensive.
The book that represents my childhood dream and became my favorite Disney movie.
I collect on the British royal family. I want all three of this author’s Queen picture books.
I also collect on the Roosevelt family. This one is pretty far up my wish list.
I own most of this series, but would like to have them all finally.
