I don't know what it says about me,
but I love short books.
Here are ten of my favorite books you could read in a day*:
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
A Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers
Breakfast at Tiffany's by Truman Capote
Lying Awake by Mark Salzman
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
That Night by Alice McDermott
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Into That Good Night by Ron Rozelle
A Year in Japan by Kate T. Williamson
If you like short books, a great reference is
100 One-Night Reads: A Book Lover's Guide.
*For this list, I am excluding the many
wonderful 32-page children's picture books I love.
Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
