Welcome to another day of bookish themes, with Booking Through Thursday.
What book(s) do you find yourself going back to? Beloved children’s classics? Favorites from college? Something that touched you and just makes you long to visit?
(Because, doesn’t everybody have at least one book they would like to curl up with, even if they don’t make a habit of rereading books? Even if they maybe don’t even have the time to visit and just think back longingly?)
I tend to return, whether in my thoughts or in actual rereads, to those books that remind me of times when I could savor my books. When there was no rush to finish and no huge stack of TBRs awaiting me.
Books like these:
Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell. I reread this at least three times when I was young.
I even ordered my own copy a couple of years ago, and it sits on a stack of other books I plan to reread; books I recall fondly.
Rebecca, by Daphne du Maurier. It also sits on the same stack.
Uncle Tom’s Cabin, by Harriet Beecher Stowe
Then there are the more contemporary books that I’ve enjoyed over the years. Favorite authors whose creations feel like comfort food. Beth Gutcheon’s books like Domestic Pleasures. (Click for my review)
And Still Missing, by Beth Gutcheon (Click for review). This one is on a stack on my nightstand, just waiting. Sometimes I pick it up and leaf through it.
Just thinking about these books, and others that I’ve loved, gives me a warm, fuzzy feeling….what about you? What gets your juices flowing?
