My Ten Favorite Books

Dear Readers,

Think back, way back, to the many books you have read over your lifetime.

Remember how it felt to curl up in your father’s big armchair on a frosty winter night, your favorite book in hand, delighting in every page you turned?

Remember perching in your favorite tree on a lazy summer afternoon, lingering over a masterfully constructed sentence, an imaginative phrase, the perfectly chosen word?

Remember when you simply could not put down the book you were reading?

And remember how you read your absolute favorite books over and over again?

Me too!

Well, talk about a challenge: I have been asked to whittle my lengthy list down to only 10 favorite titles!

Here are the rules for this CHALLENGE:
1._ Think about those books you enjoyed over a lifetime of reading. It is not easy to do because you have to whittle your list down to only TEN books! Write them down – make a list of 10.
2._ When you complete your list, post it on your blog.
3._ Send a link to your blog post to 3 friends and Invite your 3 friends who love books to take the challenge. List the 3 friends you are inviting at the end of your blog post.
4._ Ask your 3 friends to send you a link to their blog post so you can enjoy seeing their 10 favorite books, too.
6._ Your 3 friends will invite 3 of their friends to continue on with the challenge.

    I created this Challenge and posted my own 10 favorite books on my blog.

    I invited 3 friends to participate. This is Joan’s response to my challenge.

    What do you think? Are any of your favorites on Joan’s list?
    This list has several books on it that I read and loved, tool

    When you think you can only list 10 books, it is really a difficult task.

    You con’t have to wait to be invited. Just copy and paste the challenge for yourself, and post it on your blog.
    Let the world see hwat your favorite books are.

    1. A tough challenge…my list took me back to early childhood, to the many books I reread every summer vacation, into adulthood. Thank you, Linda!
