50 Books I'd Recommend - From a Realtor® and Avid Reader

Posted by Tara Branham on Thursday, October 8th, 2015 at 3:27pm

I love to read.  It's no secret.  Every 2 or 3 weeks, I head over to the Bryan/College Station Public Library and pick up an armful of books.  
These are some of the books I've read over the last 10 years that I would consider favorites and would recommend them. They are in alphabetical order.  


My favorite on the list is a non-fiction book that I feel is extremely thought provoking called:
