-- "the creative habit: learn it and use it for life"-- t. tharp
-- "the alchemist"-- p. coelho
-- "1,000 places to see before you die"

-- "the phantom of the opera"-- g. leroux
-- "knowing God through the year"-- j.i. packer
-- "it's okay to be different"-- t. parr
-- "tuck everlasting"
-- "a little princess"
-- "bright lights, big city"-- j. mcinerny
-- "black like me"-- j.h. griffin
-- "devotional classics"-- r. foster

-- "praying God's word"-- b. moore
-- "franny & zooey"

great list! thank you so much for sharing it. I believe this list will be my reading material for 2006!

I will need to read Amy Carmichael's book Mimosa since my niece, Mimosa Joy a/k/a "Mimo" is named after the woman in the book. :)

Happy Birthday!!
