Day 4 – Your favorite book or series ever.
Oh, my. This is another hard one. ‘I have so many favorites it’s hard to choose. But I’m going to pick an old favorite. After all, I still love it.
Matilda; Roald Dahl
This is a book meant for children, but I think people of any age can find something to love in it. Matilda comes from an illiterate and piggish family, and terrorized at her school. But she loves to read, and can’t be kept from her books, no matter what ignorant people do. And she discovers a power of her own, to fight back.
Any bookworm can empathize with the need to escape into the worlds books offer. It was made into a movie, which, if you’ve seen it, is basically an exaggerated form of the book. But Dahl is really funny, in a dry, witty way.
