“We read to know we’re not alone.” C.S. Lewis

There’s nothing like a good book to keep us company. And nothing more intimate and graceful, the experience between the storyteller and the listener. The writer writes, the reader reads. The bond is cemented. This silent exchange requires nothing of the reader but their time and attention for the length they are willing to give the book.

I have spent many a fine hour lost in a good book. Here is a list of my book faves, in hopes they will become yours too. They are not in any particular order.

  5. The Year of Magical Thinking, Joan Didion
  6. Out of Africa, Isak Denesen
