Dear Readers,

Dear readers and classic book lovers,

I write to you in request of your opinions of: Wuthering Heights.  This book has been in my TBR pile for a while now… to be frank, I started the book years ago.  When I was probably too young to read it, and didn’t actually get very far.  So,  I recently heard from another reader that watching the movie helps in appreciating the book (in this case – not recommended for all books).  So, I found a BBC version of Wuthering Heights (2009)  recently and watched it.  And hated it.  What a horrible story.  What horrible people.  They’re just not nice people.  Mean.  I wanted to like the characters or at lease just one of them… but I couldn’t.  Please forgive me if you like this book, I do not mean to offend. Actually, if you do like the book, please please tell me why.  I know I shouldn’t compare the book to the movie so before I scratch this book off the list… I come to you, fellow readers.   Is it the book… or is this TV adapted version to blame?

All my love,

LJ

Dear Summer,

Dear Summer,

You are going by way too quickly.  You are by far my favorite season of them all with your warm, bright, welcoming sunny afternoons… I’m afraid I do not get to spend enough time with you and would like to get to know you better.  There are so many things I would like to do, and can only do with you.  Imagine all of the outdoor activities we could do together: we could swim, go to the park, go exploring, play with dogs in the fields… Imagine all the books we could read, paintings we could paint, pictures we could take and memories we could make!  I beg you, let’s stop and smell  the roses a bit… don’t be in such a hurry to go!

All my love,

LJ

Dear non-readers,

Dear Non-readers,

What do you do on a flight?  As a reader, I look forward to traveling.  Especially if I do not have to drive – it is wonderful to have all of that built-in reading time.  And the only interruptions you get are “Would you like something to drink?” and “Can I take your trash?”  Yes, Please!  I just came back from a trip this weekend and got some much-needed reading time in.  I was able to finish two books and halfway through the third.  It felt so good, I’m planning the books for my next flight!  It must be so boring, I think to sit and stare at the back of the seat in front of you listening to the child behind you crying.  I spent so much time reading on my flights, I forgot to notice what the non-readers were doing but I’ll give you my opinion since you didn’t ask for it:  you’re missing out!

All my love,

LJ (a.k.a.”Curious Reader”)
