Favorite Books I love to read mainly nonfiction, including scripture from the Bible. However, I think my hubby has plans of getting me into some fantasy fiction soon! I mainly read books that relate to my interests. I like anything by Sark, Martha Stewart, Katie Brown, &; Rebecca Cole. I love to read children’s books to my kids! My all time three favorite children’s books from my childhood are: The Giant Jam Sandwich by John Vernon Lord and Janet Burroway, Popcorn by Frank Asch (out of print), & The Three Little Kittens by Paul Galdone.
