Welcome to the For the Love of Books Giveaway Hop, hosted by Stuck in Books.
It will not be a surprise to anyone that I love books. I love to read and I always have. One of my favorite things about going to college was that I could finally read at the lunch or dinner table if I wanted to – and I always wanted to. Still do.
Of course, in order to continue to do that I had to marry another reader. Reading together at dinner is very companionable – even in restaurants!
But the question of what book I love the most is always a stumper for me. I love lots and lots (and LOTS) of books. Picking out one, or even just a few, is always difficult.
My first love, still and probably forever, is The Lord of the Rings. From my first read in 4th grade through my 20s, I probably read it more than two dozen times. Now that I can listen in my car again, I’m probably due for a re-listen.
There are plenty of other books that have claimed places in my heart, stories that have touched me and continue to do so. Like The Chronicles of Narnia. And Heinlein’s The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, although not for the same reasons, of course. If someone is looking for a thoughtful mystery, I always recommend Louise Penny’s Chief Inspector Gamache series. And there’s a huge soft spot in my heart for Sherlock Holmes. The list goes on.
What about you, what book do you love the most? Or what book do you love to recommend the most? Just think how big a TBR pile we can create together, if we all recommend our favorites!
