Lately, by sheer happenstance, I’ve been reading novels about bookish folks or bookish places. I just finished Nicole Yoon’s lovely YA novel, Everything, Everything,* and I’m in the midst of Katherine Reay’s The Bronte Plot.* Both are about women who love books and who come to know themselves through the pages of other’s writing.
I am much like those women because, in many ways, books are the way I have most come to understand the world.
So for this holiday season, I’ve decided to read books about books, and I’d love both your recommendations and your company. It feels like a good, quiet, healing thing for me to undertake in these busy holiday weeks – to hunker down with classics writ fresh in new titles, to spend time with people who adore the way we can venture, escape, discover in the pages of someone’s story.
If you’d like to join me, I’d welcome the company. We can share titles over on Goodreads if you’d like. And if you have recommendations for titles, please let me know in the comments here, over on Facebook, or through Twitter. I plan to get a LOT of reading done over the next six weeks, and I could use all the companionship and recommendations I can get.
