Books that make me happier


I don’t know about you, but I sometimes want to run away INTO a book. “Some of the characters have become my best friends”, a friend once told me about a series of books by Debbie Macomber.

What about you? Does your journal reflect any book or series of books that make  you happy? Here are a few new ones to check out:

The Goldfinch by Donna Tarry

A Kestrel for a knave by Barry Hines

I capture the castle by Rosie Smith

The Enchanted Apriil. By Elizabeth Arnim

Raise high the roof beam by J D Salinger






“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home.”

Anna Quinden (How reading changed my life)

Classic Novels

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Little Women –            by Louisa May Alcott

Rebeca –                      by Daphne cu Maurier

Wuthering Heights –  by Emily Bronte`

A Christmas Carol –   by Charles Sickens

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

War and Peace –         by Leo Tolstoy

Moby Dick –                 by Herman Melvin
