Well see how sketchy my memory is? And all this time I've been quoting it incorrectly.. It must have been the word 'munnot' that grabbed my attention. Smiling

Hey, it WAS in bold print as a chapter title! So, see, you were supposed to remember it that way! Big Grin

Thanks for gettin' my back there, Woofie.

I haven't read a book in so long... I used to be a voracious reader, before kids. I saw the 'guess the book' thread in the new thread thingie on the home page.. I'm hoping all this book talk will make me want to pick up a book again. Crying My problem is I just don't know what I feel like reading.

Are you a repeat reader? Maybe that would be the best way to start out, with something you already know you like, it'll be like running into an old friend.

That's a good idea, thanks! Yes, I'll reread a favorite many times if I feel like it. I ran through a trashy novel phase many years ago, it burned me out on fiction, but then I found the classics. Smiling

I'm dreadfully short on the classics. I tried "Grapes of Wrath" and couldn't get into it. I did some Dickens and loved it, and of course, the stuff in school - Shakespeare, blah blah blah.

I find reading about the authors of the classics easier to appreciate - I had read a story about Hemingway's first wife and the time they spent in Paris as expatriates - and now I'm reading his version of it "The Moveable Feast". By hook or by crook .... !

I plowed through Wuthering Heights because there were so many references to it in other books I'd read. I personally thought it bore (and I do mean "bore") a marked resemblance to something put out by Harlequin Romance, but what do I know? Whistling

Someone gave me CS Lewis' 'Letters to Children' once, that made me read 'The Chronicles of Narnia'. Then when they started making the movies, they skipped right over 'The Magician's Nephew', which was the best (and first, chronologically) book in the series. Grumbling
