Books

Charles Spurgeon once said, “My books are my tools. They also serve as my counsel, my consolation, and my comfort. They are my friends and my delights.” I must agree. Furthermore, J. Oswald Sanders stated in his book, Spiritual Leadership, “If a man is known by the company he keeps, so also is his character reflected in the books he reads.” Since my earliest years, books have played a profound role in my life. I enjoy reading and talking to others about what I’ve read.  I enjoy shopping for new books locally, and as much as possible, I purchase new materials from The Bookmark Shoppe and Galaxy Comics. The following is a list of some of my favorite books from various genres.
