Wholesome Reads

"If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, 
we seek after these things." 
(Articles of Faith 13)

I'm including a list of some of my favorite books, all of which are clean, wholesome, interesting, entertaining, and uplifting in nature. There is a list for children, youth, and adults. (This is a work in progress; periodic updates will be made.)
