A bit late on the Top Ten Tuesday, and a bit behind generally with blogging: busy times at work aaaaaand I just am getting over one of those vicious stomach bugs that prostrates you for 24 hours plus.
I am feeling better but am still on the “cautiously nibbling dry white toast to see if it will stay down” phase of my recovery. Therefore, though I am well enough to blog a bit, I am home from work today because I did not want to risk my toast and ginger ale coming up all over my patients!
Anyway, what better way to coddle myself into recovery than to pick my Top 10 Childhood Books I Love to Revist?
THERE IS NO BETTER WAY.
I slightly redefined this in my mind by deleting the “would” in the heading provided by The Broke and the Bookish.
These are not books I theoretically would love to revisit one day. These are books that I have revisited; books that I do revisit. The proof is in their covers and spines and battered pages. I restricted myself to books that I acquired before high school, and books the same physical copies of which I have dragged from home to dorm to apartment to apartment to home over the course of a good twenty years.
I will give you a photo tour.
The Lord of the Rings, by J.R.R. Tolkien
Yes, Fellowship is bound entirely in duct tape. DON'T JUDGE OKAY. These just sneak in under the cutoff; I started with these around eighth grade. Yep. Lord of the Rings. It's all been said before. I loved and love and will always love these books.
That's all for today! This week I will be playing catch-up with book reviews, so watch for those, for sure!
