Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading.
If you had to pick only 5 books to read ever again, what would they be and why?
This is a good question to get me out of hiding this week–is it just me or should we all be hibernating right now? It sure feels like way after several weeks of sub-zero temperatures in our area.
Anyway, I think for me the best qualification for being one of my five books would be that reading this book changed me in some way and has the power to continue to inspire me, make me think, or see the world in a different way. Here’s my list, in no particular order:
Rich in Love by Josephine Humphreys
The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro
Three Junes by Julia Glass
Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
The last one I’ve added on more because it never fails to satisfy. I guess if you only get to read five books, they had better be ones that you could read over and over again!
What are your ‘top five’?
