Speak Your Mind: READ ALL THE BOOKS!
Last Thursday the UK celebrated the 15th annual World Book Day, a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading. You may have noticed Teen Skepchick’s celebration of it on Tumblr. But there are way too many books and way to many authors to fit into one day of celebration! We like to celebrate reading every day.
My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell, which I read in high school. I’ve read books I liked better since then, but no other book packed quite the emotional punch. I remember sitting in my room, just sobbing away as I finished the book. I was so into the book, in fact, that I didn’t even realize I was finishing it. (How could it end like that? And my love for dystopias is born!)
What is your favorite book? Who is your favorite author? What was the first book that really touched you? What are some books you would recommend?
