QOTD – November 21 – Which Books Do You Pick Up Again?
Margolin’s “Best Of” BookCase
While I might buy several books each month – somewhere between 10 and 20 – I find that there are old favorites that seem to warrant my attention on regular basis. There are certain styles, or stories, or messages that I need to hear in order to stay sane-ish. There’s something that Salinger, or Frey, or Baldwin can say to me that I haven’t been able to find in anything else; so I return to them.
Question of the Day:
What are the books to which you keep returning?
Catcher In The Rye (Salinger), A Million Little Pieces (Frey), The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Not Without Laughter (Langston Hughes), Giovanni’s Room (James Baldwin), The Passing (Nella Larsen), and The House on Mango Street (Sandra Cisneros), are the ones that I tend to re-read on a regular basis.
