Off The Shelf

Take a look at your bookcase. If you had enough free time, which book would be the first one you’d like to reread? Why?

Definitely Stephen King’s IT. This has been stated before in this blog – IT is my favourite novel of all time. It is enormous and it is thrilling and it is touching. And it has everything in it – horror, humour, love, sex, friendships, loyalty, family, sadness, loneliness and standing up against bullying, whether it is by a human being or by something that is supernatural.

I have read the book several times but not in the last 5 years or more. I first watch the mini-series as a 15 year old kid and then got the book at the library to read a year or so later and read it in 2 days without doing much else other than eating, drinking and sleeping in between. The book was compelling and I could barely put it down for doing other stuff. I rarely find the time to read anymore as well, during my spare time, I am always online or watching a tv series or a movie. Who has the time for books?

But this book which I keep above all else – I have a copy and it is dog eared – is my favourite still. I will always treasure it.
