It's no secret...I love books. I buy them (can hardly resist buying them), check them out from the library, love to have them on shelves surrounding me or laying beside the bed, like the way they feel, love the words and ideas they contain, have a stack a mile high of ones I plan to read sometime soon. And while I love books dearly, I readily admit that not all books are very good. In fact, there are a ton of average and even terrible books out there. I know because I have read a bunch of them. But every now and then, there is a gem. Sometimes I stumble upon a book that touches my heart, or mind, or both in a special life-changing way. Sometimes I fall in love with a book. There's a difference between loving books in general and being in love with a specific book. Right now I'm in love with the book Same Kind of Different As Me. I'm not really supposed to say that right now because it happens to be our book club choice this month and we don't reveal how well we like it until the night of the meeting (which hasn't happened yet.) Since my fellow book club members read my blog, I just spilled a tiny secret about my love for this book. I bet they'll forgive me.
I'm curious. And I am always looking for a good book to read. So, if you will take the time to comment, I would love to know 3 of your most loved books. Here are three of mine:
Beloved by Toni Morrison
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The Listening Book by Mathieu
