The 25 Book Challenge

In September, I received a Facebook challenge from a friend and mentor. It was to post for 25 consecutive days covers of books I love or that for some reason occupy a special place in my personal library. Those who participate are to post no explanations or commentary related to the books. Participants are then to challenge one additional person each day to participate.  I thought I’d share my list for your reading exploration:

  1. All Creatures Great and Small/All Things Bright and Beautiful omnibus by James Herriot

  3. Christy by Catherine Marshall
