      Good morning, Wendy. Thank you for visiting my blog. And what is your favorite book?

      • It is morning in Canada now. I hope that you had a nice day! My favorite book is the Bible. After that my favorites are old classics such as „The Woman in White” and „The Chronicles of Narnia”. I have read a lot of children’s classics out loud to my kids since we home school – so there are many books that we own and love. Have you read „The Hobbit”? We love that one too.

      Good evening, Wendy. It is 8:10 p.m. in Poland. Thank you for answering my question. Yes, I agree: The Bible is The Book of Books. My favorite part of it is Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 13. Even non religious people appreciate this beautiful text. Books by J.R.R.Tolkien and C. S. Lewis are great. When I was a girl I have been read first of all „Mary Poppins”, novels about Anne from Avonlea, orient tales and nowadays I often come back to them with my grandchildren. I like books by Sigrid Undset, Albert Camus, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, John Steinbeck, William Saroyan and a lot of Polish writers whose greatness is often LOST IN TRANSLATION because of unknown and complicated national history and Polish language as well. Jan Kochanowski (16th century), Adam Mickiewicz, Juliusz Slowacki (both lived in 19th century) and Bolesław Lesmian and Kazimierza Illakowiczowna (20th century) are their names. One can say that I have very old fashion sense of style. Yes, I have. I know a lot about an old and contemporary literature, the both international and Polish, my preferences had been changing many times during process of acquiring knowledge. Finally most appreciated book for me is „Quo vadis” by Henryk Sienkiewicz (Nobel Prize in Literature 1905). My opinion probably will shock a modern part of my readers but I have never read best book about transformation of human being’s spirituality. Persecution of Christians is an axis of this novel but very interesting for me is just Marcus Vinicius and his metamorphosis. Best wishes to you, Wendy.
