Day 3 - 100 Day Photo Challenge

Day 3- Favorite book that you own

I couldn't pick just one.  How does anyone pick just one? It was hard enough for me to limit it to four.  The first is The World of Jan Saudek which is the book which made me want to become a photographer.  When I graduated from high school, my father gave me his copy.  The second one is The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.  These are now and will probably always be my favorite books. I have easily read them over 20 times.  I have a daughter named after an elf.  To say they have influenced me would be an understatement. The third one is The Pink Fairy Book by Andrew Lang.  This is an old first edition copy.  It is beautiful. I took a photo a page I had put a bookmark in for some reason years ago.  Fourth book is Still LIfe by AS Byatt.  This passage about the plums is my favorite passage in any book ever.
