Feature & Follow: #164 One Book

Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs! This week’s question…

If you could only have ONE book for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

This one was really hard to answer as I am a voracious reader who loves variety – I read over 300 books last year and this year I’m already nearly up to 200. I’d need a book that could be read over and over and over without getting stale. Mysteries are obviously out because you’d already know whodunnit after the 1st read. Dystopian novels are out as only having one novel would be depressing enough. Romances are a maybe but only two characters getting their HEA would be tragic. I think I’d have to go with…

Complete Works of Shakespeare

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare

It’s got all the seven deadly sins covered, some of the best lines ever crafted, 3D characters, morals, universal themes etc etc. It could act as a doorstop and a burglar deterrent. Lugging it around would help improve my muscles and if some quotes eked into my brain, I’d sound really smart and stuff 🙂

I’m stretching things a little but in my defence it is one book with one binding encasing it and one ISBN.

  1. Well, if that was the only book that I’d be able to read…it might take me a lifetime to read. Hehe. I admire Shakespeare. I can somewhat tolerate Shakespeare plays, but reading Shakespeare always puts me in a cleaning mood…instead of a reading mood. Just not for me.

    My sister is huge on Shakespeare, so she’d definitely agree with your choice.

  2. I’m lucky to have seen quite a few productions so I can sort of visualise what’s going on when I read the plays. I had a really good English teacher at high school who pointed out all the naughty bits in “Romeo and Juliet” which honestly improved my appreciation of Shakespeare tenfold.

  3. [email protected] GREAT read

    Nice one! Seeing quite a bit of the classics today!

    Here’s my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

    • There is a hilarious set of workouts on Smart Bitches Trashy Books e.g. every time you read about a character’s eyes flash or roll you need to do a 30 sec plank or if she bites her lip you have to do 25 pushups.

    • I only got into urban fantasy and paranormal romances last year so I had a lot of catching up to do. I used to be a classics and mystery girl only.

  4. My first instinct was to choose the collected works of Shakespeare too. You can’t beat the Bard when it comes to covering all aspects of the human experience. Plus, the longer the better, you need to make that one book last 🙂
