Hello everyone. I’m happy to report that my wrist is doing better, even though it’s not completely healed yet. But the wrist brace has helped, as has applying ice twice a day. Thank you again for your kind comments. I really appreciate them.
I was thinking the other day about how I’ve been a reader all my life, yet I’ve only been blogging for a little over two years. This means that there are a lot of books I loved but haven’t had the opportunity to tell you about. And there are also some I loved but can’t remember anything about – other than the fact that I love them, that is. I really need to make more time for re-reading.
Anyway, I started thinking that this is certainly also the case with my fellow bloggers, and I’d really love to hear about these books. Which gave me an idea: what if I invited other bloggers to tell me about a forgotten favourite of theirs? When they read it, what they remember the most clearly, why they loved it, and so on. Part of the inspiration also came from the fact that Kailana invited me to write a guest post for her blog, which will be up tomorrow. I quite like the idea of having other bloggers I love sharing a post with me and my readers. It’s fun, it keeps things from getting monotonous, and it’s a way of discovering new blogs.
So what do you think? Is this something you’d be interested in reading or contributing to? I’d probably only be able to start in July, as June is going to be a busy month. Also, please let me know if anyone out there has done anything similar. I’d hate to accidentally be stealing someone’s idea.
I was going to tell you at length about my forgotten favourites, but if I do go ahead with this I might as well save it for then. But in case you're curious: until recently, one was Pobby and Dingan by Ben Rice, but I re-read it this year. Another is Brief Life (also published with the title That Same Flower) by Jostein Gaarder. I loved it when I was 17. I wonder how I'd feel about it today.
Let me know what you think. I hope you all have a great week.
Edit to add: Thanks to Molly for pointing out that Alyce has recently started doing something very much like this. I'll be sure to participate in the near future, and I'd love to see you join as well!
