Day 10 for #adventrecommends I ❤️❤️❤️ Pat Conroy, ever since a prof in grad school made us read The Prince of Tides. I have 3 favorites by Conroy & all of them are gut-wrenching, beautiful, traumatizing, & unforgettable. TW-suicide, violence @emilyrose_x

(Day 9: Blue) Books by a few of my favorite authors. Only book I haven‘t read is The Neverending Story, one of my favorite childhood movies. It‘s on the TBR, though. #ColormePretty #PhotoChallenge @Sweetkokoro

Scochrane26 Pat conroy is one of my favorites, but I haven‘t re-read any of his in yrs because they traumatize & break me. Not many authors can do that. 6mo
Lady_Tigana_20 @Scochrane26, Yeah, I usually ugly cry when I read his. MY READING LIFE was a nice change of pace. I don‘t remember crying. I even got my book club to read it. 6mo

I miss Litsy! I am not on as often as I used to be and my TBR list is growing. When I started working at the library part time two years it really cut down on my reading time. But it is totally worth it because I love it! And a week from tomorrow I will become the library director! I am so excited and can‘t wait!

I grew up a word-haunted boy. I felt words inside me and stored them wondrous as pearls. I mouthed them and fingered them and rolled them around on my tongue.

Conroy brings up two interesting points discussing Gone With The Wind.

Mitchell‘s defense of the Confederacy and her romanticized view of it that defines the South for so many, even to this day.

The sheer joy of reading, even if the source material is highly suspect.

I take it as an article of faith that the novels I‘ve read will live inside me forever 😊
