Lost in a great book.
“There are books so alive that you’re always afraid that while you weren’t reading, the book has gone and changed, has shifted like a river; while you went on living, it went on living too.” —Marina Tsvetaeva
Do you ever get so lost in a book, and no matter how many times you may read it, it stays with you? It may take you far, far away, through tunnels and up stone pathways, along rivers and windings roads. It may take you centuries back, to moments and sights that one can only live within words and leading…
And perhaps most fascinating of all it to read a book, and then three, five, ten years later read it again. By reading it yet again, one may glean an entirely new lesson, or see something that was not seen years ago. It is amazing how that works… the beauty of being a part of a story. Is there a book in which you would like to read again? Perhaps for the connection within your own life, or perhaps purely for its storyline?
One of my favorites to read again and again is The Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery. I believe I first read it in my early teens, but since, it is one that I go back to from time to time—one that I can never forget. One that has left a wonderful, lasting impression.
