This is the first time I am participating in Top 5 Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm . I saw this week’s post and knew that I had to participate.
This is the ultimate question. In the midst of a crisis, what books would you take and what would you sacrifice? To narrow it down to five seems so hard and yet, if I think only about my favorites, I think I can do this.
Pride and Prejudice is among one of my favorite classics and one that always return to so why not just take my Jane Austen collection. I may be cheating here but its one book so I say I’m not. Besides, I love my leather bound copy.
I’m cheating again but I love Jane Eyre and since this is my only copy of it, it comes with me.
I used to read this book every year. This book has so many memories and it is the first book where upon finishing, I literally flipped back to the beginning to start all over.
I don’t know what it is about this book that captures my heart but it is another one I can read over and over. Thinking of parting with it causes distress. It comes.
Another book with a lot of memories. I read this for summer reading going into freshman year of high school. It was the first time I completely understood, not to judge a book by it’s cover. Was dumbstruck and awed by the content of this book and it has been a permanent staple on my shelf, even with loose pages and all. I need it!
