“Only in books has mankind known perfect truth, love and beauty.”
~ George Bernard Shaw
It’s black. Smudgy. If you’re unlucky enough to have it riding in your pocket, you’ll find that it’s also staining. It can steal your heart and leave you wanting more.
Despite eyes drooping with sleepy sand, it’s words keep you up into the ungodly hours. They will call out to you like a lover, pulling you miles away as you stand there putting gas in your car or in between bites of a sandwich.
Have you been captured under it’s spell?
|Noun||1.||book lover – someone who loves (and usually collects) books.|
Chances are, Cupid’s sent his arrows into your heart, through the pages of a book. And you’re unashamedly a self-professing BOOK LOVER.
We’ve been walking through irresistible thoughts about our loves. As I shared in Falling Divinely in Love, my closest companions since childhood came to me between paper and print. Now, as an adult, this love affair hasn’t since stopped.
In celebration of love, I jotted down 14 Books That Changed My Life.
These are books that have personally spoke to my relationship with God. They changed the way I viewed God, myself, and this spiritual journey I’m on. These are the books I go back and re-read, when I need to be reminded of the greatest love affair I have with God.
Today’s book list is Non-Fiction. I’ll be sharing Fiction Love List in a later post.
INK LOVE – TOP 14 BOOKS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE (Non-Fiction)
