So we will talk books. Yes, I have read Gone with the Wind - in my teen years. In fact, most of my heavy duty reading was done as a teenager. I devoured at least a book a week, no light reading either, the majority of them were the classics. Rather than list those recommended, here is a link 50-books-to-read-before-you-die.
My reading of late has been college textbooks and doesn't leave much time for recreational reading. Of the books I would recommend that aren't on the 50 books list are (with the proviso that I was VERY MUCH into the horror genre for a number of years):
The Stand by Stephen King (I have read both the abridged and unabridged versions)
The Exorcist by William Peter Blatty. This was the first horror book that I ever read (at a mere 12 years old), and what a doozy. The book is infinitely more frightening than the movie (I know that is saying a lot).
I also like to read alternative publications from the 1960s. These types of books are extremely difficult to find, at least in the second hand shops.
I was so glad I could participate in this challenge. Even with my online college class, I was looking for a way to stave off boredom and Kathleen came to the rescue. Thank you to those who have visited me. Stay tuned for more fun and games in the months to come.
