I'm guessing that most of the bloggers and visitors to the Teen Fiction Cafe love books, and I'm no exception. I love to escape, whether to a real place or one you can only imagine--or to be able to see the world through an interesting character's eyes.
But have you ever sat down and thought about the books you simply cannot live without? Books that guide you in your everyday life, help to define those things that are fuzzy for you, or serve as must-have references?
Glancing through my bookshelf, there are several nonfiction books I like to have on hand. The Bible, the dictionary, the thesaurus, my "What to Expect When You're Expecting" was a must-have when I was pregnant, health books, writing books, parenting books, "The Little Giant Encyclopedia of Inspirational Quotes," and "Kama Sutra." Just kidding on that last one, but seriously, these books are such that if they went missing, I'd have to replace them.
Do you own any book(s) that you cannot live without?
