What is your current favorite book?
I have a really bad habit of answering this question with “the one I’m reading.” And, while it is true that I’m always enjoying the books I’m reading the most, I recently read a book of poetry that I am in love with. Outside of Shel Silverstein, poetry has never been my thing, but I heard about the princess saves herself in this one because, I follow the author, Amanda Lovelace, on tumblr. And when you feel a connection to an author, because you know them, or have heard lots about their work from other people, it makes you want to give the book a try. And I’m glad I did.
the princess saves herself in this one is a small collection of poetry, that I was able to read thru in less than an hour. But you can’t let the length of the collection fool you. It was beautifully written, and gave me all the feels. I know it will be a book that I pick up again and again.

BTW: exchanging my “reading slump” for a cleaning frenzy worked! That, and going back and reading the Wolves Chronicles (Joan Aiken) in the order she wrote them. I figure the author published them in the order she wanted them read, though GR changed the order hugely!
My current favourite depends on the time of year. Always, it is the Last Conversations of St Therese of Lisieux, a book I often turn to for comfort. At Christmas time, it is “the book”–aka The Wind in the Willows.
I did more cleaning in the last 2 weeks than I have (I’mashamedtoadmit) for months. On to the half-finished quilts!
The Wind in the Willows is probably my favorite children’s classic. I have several copies on my shelf.
