We’d like to take a second to wish my friend Minde a very Happy Birthday! We’d also like to wish my “big” brother Sonny a very Happy Just Another Day on the Calendar! Sonny isn’t real big into celebrating birthdays and at his age, who can blame him? Still, I couldn’t let today go by without wishing him a happy birthday.
Tomorrow is the start of May so you know what that means… We’re countin’ down something on I’m just sayin…! From the blog that gave you the Top 1,081 Songs of All Time and the Top 2,613 Movies of All Time comes the countdown of the Top 421 Books of All Time! But wait, there’s more! Not only will we be counting down the Top 421 Books of All Time, but we’re going to do something that has never been done before (that I know of)… We’re going to countdown the Top 66 Books of the Bible! We’re doing what they said couldn’t be done!
You might be asking yourself, why so few books? Two reasons… #1, I’m only including books on this list that I have read. #2, I decided to cut out some of the “fat”. Of course the third, unspoken, reason is that it’s my blog and this is how many books I wanted to include. Really, all of these are valid reasons. Anyway, check back every day in May as we countdown the Top 421 Books of All Time (Monday – Saturday) and the Top 66 Books of the Bible (Sunday).
By the way, if you’ve given me a book and you don’t see it on this list then chances are I just haven’t had a chance to read it yet. I’ve got a (very) long list of books on my “to read” list. Chances are the book you gave me is next on my list and I’m sure I’ll love it.
