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 read a lot when I was young, but don’t remember a favorite children’s classic. The first book that had a profound effect on me was ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ by Richard Bach. I first read this book when I was around eleven or twelve, and have read it many times since. I always find a new lesson in the book that I hadn’t noticed before.
I read ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, in college. Although it is only a short story, it effected me. I have read it several times since.
