Top Ten Tuesday:
"We all walk in the land of dreams."

"We all walk in the land of dreams. For what are we but atoms and hope, a handful of stardust and sinew. We are weary travelers trying to find our way home on a road that never ends. Am I part of your dream? Or are you but a part of mine? Welcome my brother, Phantasos, for this is surely a phantasmagoria, a fantasy world, and we are all players."
Libba Bray, Going Bovine

This week I thought I would feature my current top ten favorite books.  This is an eclectic mix, with some children's and young adult books, some classics, some more current, plus a play.  Each of these books has left a distinct impression on me in some way, and at the time that I read each one, changed my perspective on understanding life, love, relationships, friendships, society and culture, and/or dreams and desires.

I do want to note that the Bible is not on my list of favorite books, nor is this list in any way to be understood as my favorite books "other than the Bible."  One does not list air or water on a list of favorites.  They are essential to life; so is the Bible.  It is unjudgeable.  It does not belong, even at the top, of a list gathered on my decree, waiting to be replaced when the next great work so moves me. It does not impart opinions, or guide a reader to possible perpectives or understanding.  It is the Truth.  It is the Word of God.  It IS.
