It's Follow Friday!!
Today's Follow Friday question is:
Question: Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?
Interesting question. For my children, the Harry Potter series. I have the series in hard bound for them once they are old enough to read them. Besides the magic of an amazing story, it teaches that everyone has something special about them & everyone can make a difference in the world. Also, The Princess Bride by William Goldman and Stardust by Neil Gaiman, wonderful modern fairy tales that tell incredible stories.
For older readers, I have to stick with the classics. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, The Plague by Albert Camus and Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Each is a wonderful study of human nature and society as a whole.
I realize that most people are writing about their favorite read from this year, but these books are timeless, to me, and have been my must reads for a long, long time.
