Currently Reading: Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik

Is there anything nicer than reading a book about how reading brings such comfort and joy to the avid reader? This quote comes from page 31 and 32:

What mattered was that for a few hours she could forget her world and enter someone else's.

Books were Faith's easiest friends. They demanded nothing from her but her attention.

She opened the cover and ran her hands over the page, enjoying the paper's cool texture under her hand.

Chapter one. How many times in her life had those two words invited her to go to a different place, a better place than the one she lived in.

She read the words again before plunging into the first paragraph, and then the lights went out.

This book has long been a book club favourite, and yes, I am reading it for my book club!


  1. That describes the joy of being a reader perfectly! I want to know why the lights went out though!

  2. I remember loving this book when I read it years ago. I don't remember this passage, though, but it is a wonderful one!

  3. I haven't heard of that book before, but the quote is fabulous! Makes me want to give the book a try.

  4. What a great quote and a perfectly amazing title! ;O)

  5. It's a great book - I hope you continue to enjoy it!
