THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Which book do you wish you’d written, yourself?

It is Monday again. I have an early morning meeting, so I figured I would get this typed up early.

Which book do I wish I'd written myself? There are a few.


Anne of Green Gables introduces readers to the red-headed orphan named Anne Shirley. Think of all the fun I could have had traveling around Prince Edward Island to make sure the setting was portrayed correctly. This remains one of my favorite series. 


On the bookshelf in my office is this exact 1970s version of Little House in the Big Woods. I wish I had Wilder's keen eye for detail. Whenever I am seeking inspiration, I turn to one of my Little House books.


It took me a while to discover the Left Behind series, but once I did I was hooked. It was so tough to wait for the next book to come out. When it did, I would devour it within days. I'm still a fan of Jerry B. Jenkins. 

What are some books you wish you could have written?

Wonderful choices. I wish I'd even thought of them, much less written them!

I didn't answer this question, as I was at a loss to decide. There are many wonderful books out there. Perhaps I wish I had written any of the books that seem to speak to me, as those often speak to others as well.

I loved the Anne of Green Gables books...I haven't even read them all! Time to do that, I think.

Here's MY MUSING MONDAYS POST
