Booking Through Thursday is a weekly blog. You can find it here.
Do you have a favorite book? What do you say when people ask you? (This question always flummoxes me because how can you pick just one, so I’m eager to hear what you folks have to say.)
And, has your favorite book changed over the years??
I don’t often get asked what my most favorite book is, and honestly I have so many that I consider favorites that I couldn’t ever just pick one book. So my answer would depend on whether someone was looking for a great book recommendation, or really wanted to know if I held one book above all others.
If it’s a book rec. peeps are wanting I can recite off a list of those that have moved/touched me in some special way. Usually, I try and talk about my more recent reads, but it’s hard not to include forever favorites in the list if they haven’t yet read them. Just because a book isn’t new doesn’t mean it doesn’t still hold it’s value as an exceptional story to pass on to others.
If someone is really wanting to pin me down to just one? It’s just not gonna happen folks. I could no more name ONE favorite book than I could name which of my children is my favorite. They are each unique and valuable to me.
I add new favorites all the time…because I read…all the time.
What about you? Can you list just one book as your absolute favorite? If so let me know…I want to read it too 😉
