Today is #BookLoversDay!
#BookLoversDay – there’s nothing better than relaxing with a good book – any day of the year.
Books, I love them all. Hard cover, paperback (trade or mass market) or ebook (kindle or epub format) I just love books! And then there are the genres – crime, romance, chicklit, memoirs, science fiction, fantasy. Perhaps I should preface the rest of this post with…
“My name is Melanie and I’m a bookaholic.”
This great day is also celebrated in August but when November arrives, it’s place in the limelight returns. During this month, this special day always falls on the first Saturday.
There was a meme making the rounds on Facebook wanting to know the ten books that have stuck with you. Some of these were secondary school reading, others just because I wanted to, and some I’ve read more than once.
The Woman in White – Wilkie Collins
1984 – George Orwell
A Tale of Two Cities – Charles Dickens
Romeo and Juliet – William Shakespeare
Halloween Party – Agatha Christie
The Exorcist – William Peter Blatty
To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee
Of Mice and Men – John Steinbech
Farenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
Dracula – Bram Stoker
Can a person ever have too many books? I think not. As I was creating the hyperlinks for the books on my list, I even scored three FREE ones!
Perhaps I’m in need of an intervention?
What 10 books have stuck with you over the years?
