I was cleaning out an old desk today, preparing to give the desk away and put a nice cushy reading chair and ottoman in its place. When I opened one drawer though, all work ceased as I pulled out beloved copies of my favorite books. Most of them were Kathleen Woodiwiss stories, but there were a few others, too. I wanted to curl up in the new chair (that hasn’t yet arrived) and open one of them now. Alas, the chair won’t be here for four weeks yet.
However, it got me thinking. These are old, beat up copies of my favs. I have nice, shiny new ones in my collection, but I still pull these out when I want to re-read the story. I’m not sure why, and Ashes in the Wind, in particular, is pretty beat up. But they are still my go-to copies.
Do you have dog-eared copies of favorites books you like to read? I’d love to hear what your favorite stories are. The two pictured above have the 1st and 2nd spot on my fav list. What story’s at the top of your list?
I can hardly wait to get my new chair. I plan to get back to some dedicated reading time and I already know what story I’ll be settling in to read first. After all, I named my daughter Alaina after the heroine in Ashes in the Wind. 🙂
Happy reading, everyone!
