This week, I celebrate books!
Books are my constant companions, my favorite pastime, my plans A and B, my entertainment, my source of information, and my saving grace.
This was a particularly good reading week as I added 2 titles to my most favorite favorites!
The first book is E.B. White’s The Trumpet of the Swan. I have only read Charlotte’s Web and, this year, I decided to read his other children’s books. He has since become one of my favorite writers as well! I can’t wait to read his letters and essays! You can read my book reviews here.
Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin is my 40th favorite book! I had picked this for my World Book Night giveaway this year.
It was a bit risky to ask to give a book out I hadn’t read before but I knew I was going to at least like it a little bit from the chapters I previewed online. I just didn’t realize how much I would love it- the characters, the writing, the format. Originally written as as serial in a San Francisco newspaper, the chapters are short and makes you want to read what happens next. Each one is like getting a piece of puzzle and it’s wonderful when they start to fit together. The fact I grew up in San Francisco added another level of enjoyment. I can’t wait to give out this book for World Book Night!
