Thirty Days of Books: Three More Prompts

A Favorite Book I Own

Sheesh. How to answer this one? How about a picture of a shelf where I keep some old books I've inherited from grandparents? I'm not really attached to the specific books, but to the fact that they are old and that my grandparents cherished them. Know what I mean?

A Book I Wanted to Read for a Long Time But Haven't

Oh so many!

I actually read about half of this one and then quit. Why? I'm so frustrated with this! Just finish it already!!!

A Book I Wish More People Would Read

I already addressed this one a bit when I said I wish more would read Finnikin of the Rock and that series. But also, I wish more people would read: ANYTHING by Wilkie Collins. For instance:

This book is so funny and awesome and crazy. I love it
as I love all of his books. Why is he not
more well known?

Stay tuned for more 30 days of books this week! We are wrapping this one up soon!!

  1. I understand what you mean about the books from your grandparents. :) And, I haven't read Vanity Fair before. Maybe we should do a RAL. Kami wants to do one for Anne of Green Gables since I haven't read it. We'll have to talk about doing one again ... soon-ish. And, I've never heard of Wilkie Collins. I'll have to look him up.

    1. Jenni: it does feel about time for a RAL... Vanity Fair would be too much though. Anne would be good. Or a Wilkie! :)

  2. I love the look of old books sitting on a shelf. Even cooler that they are ones you inherited from your grandparents!

    I've only read one book by Wilkie Collins. We studied THE MOONSTONE in one of my literature classes at BYU. I remember liking it, but I never read anything else by Collins. Which one is his best?

    1. Susan: Ah, they are all so good, but A Woman in White is his other sort of well known one.

  3. I love old books! I have a few from my parents. I never read Vanity Fair but I didn't like the movie so...

    1. Jenny: I should probably just watch the movie then decide if the book is worth finishing.

  4. Sorry I haven't been following your 30 days of books until now. I read Wilkie Collins The Woman in White last year and loved it. I think I'd better try The Moonstone.
