We booklovers often talk about our favorite books, or maybe about our inability to pick a favorite book when we love so many.
One thing we don’t often talk about, which I think would be very intriguing to hear from fellow booklovers is our favorite passages.
By passages I mean an extended portion of the prose. Longer than a quote.
Early in January I wrote about rereading one of my professed book faves, The Great Gatsby, and how it wasn’t the same as I recalled. (Read here). That is, except for, a certain passage that I loved and have reread many times over the years.
Let me perhaps put it in another way my generation will definitely understand. I do not know which Harry Potter book is my favorite. I do know, however, which chapter in the Harry Potter series is my favorite: “The Forest Again” from Deathly Hallows.
We booklovers have favorite quotes and have favorite books, but what about favorite passages? That is a conversation we definitely need to start having.
You have a favorite passage? Please share it in the comments.
