Celebrity Ideal Bookshelves

Over at The Guardian they have a great article about what’s on the bookshelves of some great authors, filmmakers, and artists. They feature not only their favorite books but also the books that have inspired them the most.

That got me thinking about the difference between the two. Some of my favorite books aren’t necessarily the ones that have inspired me the most. Most often the books that really change my life are the non-fiction ones like the books I’ve read about spirituality and parenting. These would have to be Loving the Little Years by Rachel Jankovic (a must-read for moms!), The Attachment Parenting Book by Dr. Bill Sears, and Love Wins by Rob Bell.

There have also been some great fiction books that stay on my brain long after I read them. Among them are V for Vendetta written by Alan Moore (hands down the best graphic novel I’ve ever read, like whoa), The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, and The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. The common thread between these books is that even though they’re fictional the subject matter and the power of their delivery speak into my life just as much as non-fiction books do. It’s a beautiful thing!
