Okay... NOW you can post your favorites. :)
This time, to make it so much easier for me to assemble into a post (which will stay on the sidebar just like the first recommendations post), please only make a list as I'll show in a sample. If you can't leave a comment or if you want to expound on your selections, e-mail me at coffeeteabooksandmeathotmaildotcom.
Yes, please list those books and films you listed before on the first list (and second that I was never able to get through). Even if you notice other people have listed the same author, book, film, etc. do list it again if they are one of your favorites. It will be interesting to see who and what gets listed the most.
If your favorite books or films are in a trilogy, series, etc., feel free to put the name of the series instead of just one title. Just the same, if your favorite is just one part of a series, feel free to put down just one title. Here is a sample:
The Space Trilogy by C. S. Lewis (has one title for the trilogy because I love all three together)... but... I would post only Pilgrim's Inn from Goudge's trilogy because it is one of my favorite books and the other two in the series are not favorites. But having said that, there are few rules (other than putting them in list format) so post as you want.
I'm dividing them under the titles of: Authors - fiction, Authors - nonfiction, Favorite books - fiction, Favorite books - nonfiction, Favorite books for children - fiction and nonfiction, Favorite films. I also decided to add two specific nonfiction groupings... Favorite Devotional Reading and Favorite Cooking and Gardening books.
There will be more than one category a favorite could fall under (for instance, a decorating book could also be a favorite nonfiction and some "children's" books are enjoyed by adults)... just put them where you want them.
You can write down as few or as many titles as you want. This post will remain right here at the top of the blog through Saturday. Feel free to add more titles if you think of something you have forgotten later. Comments are moderated so your post will not show up immediately.
The only "rules"... lists only, no comments or prose except through e-mails. :)
