National Book Lovers Day! I know one thing I have in common with most of my readers is the love of reading.
I cannot imagine what life would be like if I didn't know how to read. Do you feel that way?
Many Stephen King books transported me into a magical world. Remember It? This was one of the scariest books I ever read....
I've taken many a journey with the turning of a page. With books you can visit many lands. What is your favorite book that takes place in a different country? Mine was: Eureka Street, A Novel of Ireland Like No Other. (Thanks Kwizgiver for the recommendation).
Do you read the same book over and over? I never do! It's kind of like watching a movie the second time. If I know the ending I don't enjoy it so much. But I know there are people who like to re-read books. Are you one of them?
Have you ever 'forced' yourself to stay awake only to 'read one more chapter'? I think of all the lost moments of sleep. But I wouldn't take them back for anything. Those are the best books, don't you think, the ones which keep you awake at night. What was the title of a book that kept you awake? For me it
would have been The Clan of the Cave Bear series by Jean Auel. And I could not read those books without wanting some kind of meat to eat. I often read while tearing into a chicken leg or a piece of roast beef!!
I can remember vacations we have taken by the book I was reading. My favorite John Grisham book, The Pelican Brief, was my first introduction to John Grisham. We were on a road trip from home to Las Vegas and then to Chicago. I could hardly wait to get into the car so I could pick up the book. Do you read while you are traveling?
So celebrate National Book Lover's Day today. Pick up a book. Find a nice spot to relax. Spend the day reading. I can't think of anything I would rather do. How about you?
