Debbie (debelizlam) | 12 comments I love your list-
It has some of my very favorites on it.
Love to hear how you like Cold Sassy Tree and Owen Meany

Stephanie Sobotik | 2 comments You'll love The Sun Does Shine. I highly recommend listening to Oprah's interview with Ray as well (Super Soul podcast). Oprah said that not since "The Color Purple" has a book touched her this much. Definitely a great read and an eye opener for many readers.

Owen Meany is one of my top 5 favorite books of all time. Some of the other 5 fall out of the top 5 from time to time, but never Owen Meany. Just loved it.

Cassie | 339 comments I remember reading Owen Meany in 12th grade and loving it. It might be time to go back and read it again!

Also, I think you listed Cold, Sassy Tree twice :)
