Simple Pleasures


A love of reading — getting lost in a great novel is an ever renewable pleasure. Do you have a novel that you especially love?

To The Lighthouse! I can never tire of that book . . .

I love In Her Shoes, Love Walked In, The Soloist, and The Essential Neruda for poetry. :) I just love that photo, what a gorgeous Study.

The Great Gatsby. One of the few books I studied at school that wasn't ruined by picking it apart and poring over every detail. I have read it so many times and can quote bits by heart!

Along with Becky, The Great Gatsby. I've memorized the last section...Fitzgerald, Zelda, & Scottie are buried not that far from where I live.

I have over 1,000 books so I could write many more titles, but TGG always comes out of my mouth, off my typing fingers first.

I pick up Pride and Prejudice or Jane Eyre anytime I have a horrible day, or when I go somewhere far from home, and want to take along something familiar. I must've read both of them a dozen times already at least, and never get tired of the beauty of those stories.

I just finished reading MOMO by Michael Ende. I read it when I was 12 and it was still so great!

My dream library, I agree with Sarah, I could definitely see myself rereading Pride & Prejudice in here.

Oh, my favorites include Secret History by Donna Tartt, Camilla by Madeline L'Engle, Happy All the Time by Laurie Colwin, Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson, The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers, and another Madeline L'Engle...A Wrinkle in Time. Each one is comforting and new to me each time I reread it. And, living in that library would be such a dream. xo Ama
