'tis the season
I love this time of year. It's a time where I catch up on my reading list. During Thanksgiving break, I read "The Help" by Kathryn Sockett (loved it), "Hector and the Search for Happiness" by Francios Lelord and now I am half way through "Keeper" by Kathi Appelt.
My most recent reading got me thinking about my very favorite books. Even though I enjoyed all of my Thanksgiving reads, I don't think of any of them will become a forever favorite. Here are some of the books that I will never forget.
FAVORITE BOOK WHEN I WAS A LITTLE KID "A Light in the Attic" by Shel Silverstein (When I was 9 years old, I memorized a poem from this collection called "Clarence")
FAVORITE BOOK WHEN I WAS AN OLDER KID "Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
FAVORITE BOOK IN VERSE "Love that Dog" by Sharon Creech
FAVORITE ADULT BOOK "Griffin and Sabine"by Nick Bantock
FAVORITE TITLE "The Liars Club"by Mary Karr
FAVORITE CLASSIC "The Old Man and the Sea"by Ernest Hemingway
FAVORITE BOOK ABOUT WRITING (tie) "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamott and "Writing Down the Bones" by Natalie Goldberg
FAVORITE BOOK FOR ARTISTS "The Artist's Way" and "The Vein of Gold" by Julia Cameron
