Classics
  • Some books are so good that they remain popular
    with many generations of readers. For example,
    Louisa May Alcotts Little Women,
  • 1st published in 1867, is not only popular with
    readers, but has been made into a movie at least
    three times. When you read this semester, keep a
    list of those books you feel will be popular with
    your children and with your children's children.
    What makes a book timeless?

Houses of Stone, Barbara Michaels, 1995
Then there was her passion for books. Who knows
from whence such passions derive? Karen
sometimes felt shes been born with hers. She
read while she walked to school, while she
brushed her teeth, while she dusted and vacuumed.
She favored baths over showers because it was
impossible to read under a waterfall. She read
the back of the cereal box at breakfast when her
mother refused to let her bring a book to the
table. She loved the smell of books, the feel of
books, the look of them on a shelf.
