Do you have a book that you could read a thousand times over?
Most avid readers have one or two that every few years they will dust off and read through once more to recall why it meant so much in the first place.
For me they are Persuasion by Jane Austen, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and D.V. by Diana Vreeland. As you can see my literally tastes run slightly shallow and vanilla - most were forced to read Persuasion and Gatsby in high school or college. Sorry.
Truth be told - if I could find my copy of Danielle Steel's Wanderlust, I would add that to this already impressive list.
But, if you haven't read D.V. - I highly recommend the sparkling autobiography. It's chocked-full of witty stories from the former fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue. If only life were just that fabulous. Sigh.
So - what about you? What old friend do you turn the pages of time and again?
I'm always looking for new reads - especially during a slow news day...
Stay tuned. More at 11.
