Books that make me smile (6 titles)
Reading is usually enough to cheer me up when I'm feeling down, but these books give me an extra boost
Books that scare me (in a good way) (4 titles)
Just the thing for curling up with on a cold night, with the wind whistling outside and a branch scratching against the window (as long as the lights are on and there's somebody home with you, that is!)

Cover ArtLake Wobegon days
by Keillor, Garrison
Great MN humor!   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:58AM

Cover ArtBack when we were grownups
by Tyler, Anne.
Anne Tyler was BORN in Minnesota, so I'm counting her as a MN writer!   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:57AM

Cover ArtThe Cape Ann
by Sullivan, Faith.
Start with this book, then read "The Empress of One", and then her most recent "Gardenias" -- beautiful!   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:57AM

Cover ArtWelcome to the great mysterious
by Landvik, Lorna, 1954-
Another great and prolific writer -- any of her books are winners!   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:56AM

Cover ArtStaggerford
by Hassler, Jon.
Jon Hassler has written so many great books (and I love them all) - it would take too long to list them all. My advice -- you can't go wrong with reading one of his novels.   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:55AM

Cover ArtThe great Gatsby
by Fitzgerald, F. Scott 1896-1940
I'm not a huge Fitzgerald fan, but you can't hardly have a list of Minnesota writers without including him!   posted Feb 20, 2007 at 11:54AM
