After announcing a new blog series yesterday, I would like to introduce another series called The Weekend List, which is really a revised version of my weekend posts from last year. I don’t always have something to say specifically to wrap up the week but I want to have one post each week that is a bit more personal than just sharing my film photography so I thought, hey, I like making lists! I like making and reading lists of all kinds; it’s a simple and direct way to share something about yourself. I am formally inviting you to join me in the list-making, either in the comments section or on your blog or via email, it doesn’t matter – the point is for you and I to know each other a wee bit better.
This week’s list is of one of the most fundamental loves of my life. My mother started taking us to the library when we were really young and I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t reading or wasn’t enjoying it. Here is a list of my all-time favorites (including some YA fiction that formed the foundation of my love for the written word):
- Mostly Michael by Robert Kimmel Smith
- Hot Summer Nights by Elizabeth Chandler
- Don’t Ask Me Why by Tania Kindersley
- High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
- Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder; translated by Paulette Moller
- Seven Types of Ambiguity by Elliot Perlman
- Dead Girls by Nancy Lee
- Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson
- Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson
- The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
- The Accidental Woman by Jonathan Coe
- Tara Road by Maeve Binchy
