okay, don't judge me.

i know this list is never-ending.

i read all the comments on this post and got a ton of books from there.  they all look amazing.  plus my list has been growing for awhile anyway.

my one problem, i'm reading three books right now and it's taking me forever to finish because i can't just commit to one.


so yeah, any other book suggestions?

or suggestions for my uncontrollable addiction?

[p.s.  they can be any kind of book - i know the majority of books on here are based on christianity but i do read other books too, promise]
