Since the weather has been rainy all day. I spent a chunk of my day organizing my bookshelves. Sad to say, but it's the little things that bring me joy. As I shuffled around some of the most memorable books in my reading experience, something occurred to me. I don't think I always like technological advancement.
Regardless of being the owner of a PC system, netbook, Kindle Fire, and a smartphone, I still prefer an actual hard copy of my books. To me, there is nothing better than receiving a new, shiny book and flipping through the pages for the first time. The smell of the pages and binding, the feel of the gloss or matte cover, curling up in my chair with a blanket and my new prize - it's a one of kind feeling that brings me pure happiness, plain and simple.
Nonetheless, while reordering my collection, it struck me how many books mean so much to me. I might have picked it up at a particular low/high point in my life, someone special might have recommended a title to me, or I might have just gotten lucky and chosen a winner. Either way, there are so many books I would classify as my favorites. No doubt, I've reread them enough I could probably recite the dialogue. So, I'm going to share a few with you. Bear in mind, I like variety.
Please feel free to share some of your ultimate favorites with me as well. I'm always up for trying new things. :)
