Any of you have a name for that lasting feeling of appreciation towards a literary masterpiece and the development of pure admiration towards an author? Barbara Kingsolver did this to me and if she was a guy, I would stalk him (her).

jewright It definitely sticks with you. 5h

I need the serene surrounding to get pass this book. Nathan Price n his high hypocrisy is appalling

tpixie Lovely view!! 6d
Libby1 Good morning! I agree. What an odious character. 6d
jewright This book was hard for me because of how much he reminds me of a few people I know. 6d

I am on holiday with my family and I am staying in a bungalow which the first owner was the the first British Governor in one of the states in Malaysia. Then part of the house is filled with the books. Its going to be a great bookish holiday for me

I couldn't cry my heart out in the finishing parts of this book all because I was in a public library. This is one of those books apart from the Bible where the words zapped me up. #stephjotsdown #mitchalbom #favread

Texreader This is an awesome book. I agree! 2w
Schnoebs This is one of my favorite books of all time! Are you going to read the sequel? 1w
Stephjotsdown @Schnoebs yes definitely. I got all of Mitch Albom's books on my Kindle already. How about you? Have you read the others? 1w
Schnoebs I finished the sequel a month or two ago. I‘ve also read Tuesdays with Morrie. The only other one I currently have is the magic strings of Frankie presto. Hopefully I‘ll be able to get to it this summer! 1w

The most exciting part for me is finally here. I am so curious to know the mental transformation that Hitler underwent which boost him to become the Nazi leader when he was released from Landsberg. #history #hitler #1924
