3 Things Books You Love Say About You
How often do you re-read your favorite books? And what do they say about you?
Recently, I’ve been caught up in Rome during the first century. I first read A Voice in the Wind (Mark of the Lion) and An Echo in the Darkness (Mark of the Lion #2) by Francince Rivers as a young mom. I remember being totally captivated by the stories, and I recommend the books to everyone I know, but I realized after twenty years I’d forgotten what much of the story was about . . . so I decided to read them again.
I finished the first two books just last week, and I remember why I loved them so!
As I read about ancient Rome and Ephesus, I couldn’t help but think of the United States and our vain pursuits of pleasure. Because it’s been so long I’d forgotten much of the story, so they were new and exciting to me.
After all this time, these are still some of my favorite books. And I’ll continue to recommend them.
Re-reading these favorites also got me thinking about why I love what I love.
