My “blankie” books AKA Books I could reread forever

Last Tuesday I briefly mentioned that I have books that I return to again and again like a child who has a favorite blankie or stuffed animal growing up. For me, I have books that I will also return to and never tire of. I covered most of these in one of my very first posts here.

This week is Top Ten Books that have been on my TBR the longest and I still haven’t read. This one is usually a kiss of death. It most likely means that added them, and then my interests changed, or my taste in books, or whatnot. And some are simply because I forget I haven’t read them yet. Let’s check them out.
