Where is the love?

On Tuesday we talked about how reading like a writer can spoil your enjoyment of books. If you”re anything like me, you are constantly analysing and dissecting, instead of immersing yourself in the novel”s world. (Even worse, I find myself angered by bad writing, particularly if it”s commercially successful, and jealous of really good writing… neither is a pleasant emotion.) As suggested by Steph, let”s rekindle our love of reading. You are invited to post the titles of three books you love – not books you think are clever, or challenging, or well written, but which fill you with the simple joy of being told a story. (Which is not to say that they can”t also be clever, challenging and well written!) Feel free to tell us why you love them, but remember that it”s appreciation, not critique, that we”re looking for.
