Today is National Read-A-Book Day (which avid readers just call “Thursday”) so I was thinking today you could tell me a great book (because I am voracious and always looking for a new read) and then we could do a giveaway.
What is a book you loved so much that you almost wish you could erase from your memory so you could experience it again for the first time?
I have dozens but one of my favorites is Shirley Jackson’s We Have Always Lived in the Castle.
It’s simple and complex and she perfectly captures the sense of otherness and of fear in a way that few people ever do. It’s a strange book but one of my favorites.
(PS. Tonight I’ll pick three commenters at random and send you a gift certificate for free books. Just make sure you use an email address in your comment.)
