Haiku Friday: Great books

I'm a reader. One thing that comes with that status is that every once in a while, you read something that totally pulls you in, and when you are done you miss the characters in the book-- they are gone and you feel their sudden absence. I just finished a book like that this week, and I am now in that period of mourning.

Let's haiku about great books this week, the ones that make you want to get home a little early so you can dig in. Here, I will go first:

When I was done, I
Set the book down, content. Yet,
I miss its wonder.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 syllable count, and feel free to call out the name of that great book!

It would be nice if
you shared the title of said
book, just curious
40 years ago
Read Fellowship of The Rings
Reading to Son, GREAT!
Dear Reader Christine
Please see Wednesday's blog post
Details are all there!
"Can't put it down," I
said. But shocked at how fast I
finished it. Want more.

Voices, footsteps, life;
In a good book you can hear
A story unfold.

Sounds scintillating
so subtle and elegant
Naptime for Kittie
Some books speak to you.
For me, it’s Catch 22.
Over and over.
Lila, third reading
Marilynne Robinson’s prose
Charms enchants me still

Despite sad ending
Elegance of the Hedgehog
Deserves a reread
Catcher in the Rye,
A broken grieving soul is
Crying out for help.
