A Peek at Melanie’s Bookshelf

As an avid reader and bibliophile, I have amassed quite the collection of books. And while my taste in wine may be basic (two buck chuck will usually do the trick!), I have cultivated a more refined palette for the written word.

Check out my page on Bookshop.org to see what I’m currently reading as well as my recommendations for books on poetry, faith and justice, China, writing/art/creativity, and Christian contemplative books and devotionals.

I wholeheartedly support the mission of Bookshop, which understands how vital independent bookstores are to our ecosystems, and therefore seeks to “keep local bookstores [as] an integral part of our culture and communities.” Any purchases made through the affiliate links support independent bookstores as well as my own calling to curate enriching literature, at no additional cost to you!
