Appreciating Books/ Top 5 Wednesday

Standard

Top 5 Wednesday

Happy Wednesday morning dear readers, it is lovely to have you for another Top 5 Wednesday meme. Today I will share with you books that I am thankful for since they influenced my reading choice or made me fall even more in love with a particular aspect of  the arts. I do not only love books: the way they smell, feel under my touch but I love reading so I am happy to make a formal tribute and say thank you to five books. Bare with me, I am not coco for coco puffs but through reading, from a girl I found a best friend in books. Are you interested in participating in the weekly Wednesday meme? If yes  please do join us on the Goodreads Group.

Let us dive into it:

1.The Complete Novels of Jane Austen:

Jane Austen

 

Although I have  some of the stories as separate copies, I like the volume novel because it is easier to use if I am doing a project encompassing all the books. Although it is thick, it is a worth it fall on your nose hurts you for hours heavy book. The plus side of this volume is my introduction to Lady Susan which became one of my most like Jane Austen reads. I really appreciate Jane Austen style of writing because of the wit fuse with the type of characters in a 19th century European setting. Jane Austen writing to me is a sort of window looking into the middle class behavior of the Georgian/Regency Era. It is fascinating to me that Jane Austen style of writing became labelled romantic when her writing was more  a tamer version of  Violet, the matriarch of Downton Abbey.

Forever Book Tag

Source: Via Word..I Need Words

Hello Wednesday people :). I came across this book tag by Jordan on Words. . . I Need Words. . .  several weeks ago and I am finally making time to try it out because I like the meaning behind the tag (if that makes any sense) . Jordan says :

What to do: In your status, list 10 books that have stayed with you forever, or at least since you have read them ;]. Don’t take more than a few minutes, and don’t think too hard. You don’t have to justify why you are choosing these books. They don’t have to be great works of literature, just books that have affected you in some way. Show others what books mean the world to you. Tag a few friends, and include me so I can see your list.

So let us get into it (in no particular order):

1.Persuasion by Jane Austen
