What’s your favorite book that nobody else has heard of? You know, not Little Women or Huckleberry Finn, not the latest best-seller . . . whether they’ve read them or not, everybody “knows” those books. I’m talking about the best book that, when you tell people that you love it, they go, “Huh? Never heard of it?”
And, folks–Becca was nice enough to nominate Booking Through Thursday for a Blogger’s Choice Award–while you’re here, why don’t you head over and vote for us, too. Because, a vote for BTT is a vote for all of us who play each week!
Congrats to the ladies who host Booking Through Thursday for the nomination!
Hmmm... This is a tough question. There are those books that although some people know of them, there is always a few people who have no idea what you're talking about.
Local books, on the other hand, don't get as much exposure as the latest bestseller by Stephen King and unless someone's 'from here' they've never heard of them. I'm thinking of books like My Grandfather's Cape Breton, and Bluenose Ghosts. The first one is reminisces of a boy's summer living with his Grandfather and the second is the stories collected by folklorist Helen Creighton.
Other books I've enjoyed that people probably never of are Letters to Alice on First Reading Jane Austen. Now I'm going to snoop on the other BTT participants. My answer maybe adjusted ;)
