This is a little more unorthodox than my usual PROMPTuesdays, only because I recently saw a list of 101 Things For A Mom Blogger to Write About, and the starter “The Best Book I Ever Read Was…” jumped out at me. Now I know it’s not a fresh topic, nor bawdy nor random, but I love this subject and I could really stand to add another domino to my teetering bedside table book collection. Also, I thought this topic — open to non-mom bloggers too; come to think of it — open to everyone, even non-bloggers (out there in the wild) — would encourage more people to participate this week. I hate thinking that anyone is too intimidated to post their stuff, and so I hope this week’s PROMPT removes your inhibitions.
So. What was the best book you’ve ever read and why? If you’d like to creative this week’s PROMPT up, write your post as a poem, in the voice of the main character, as a review, or a book jacket teaser.
Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.
In the meanwhile, if you’re new here, read a bit about this weekly writing exercise here.
