Top Shelf Book Shelf book shelves.....they are like a beloved friend.  If there was ever a fire in my house I think I would actually take a minute to rescue some of my beloved books.....sad, I know!  This is my second move in the last six months, first from New York to North Carolina and now from an apartment to my beautiful new home.  So for the second time I am packing my beloved books up into cardboard boxes, of course still trying to keep them in alphabetical order by author, I know......I alphabetize our DVD's also. 

Because my blog is so new, it would take forever to review all of my past and present favorites, so I am going to be giving you a list of my Top Shelf Reads.  These are books that I rattle off when someone asks "What should I read?" (then they regret asking when I don't stop talking).
