Tolstoy and the Purple Chair (and 365 books)
Nina Sankovitch vowed to read a book a day for one year after her beloved sister died. She found it comforting and enlightening, and she learned a lot about herself and how to live after a great loss. I've read only 19 of the 365 books she read that year. Here are a few of the books she discovered. She doesn't mention all 365 but the list is on her blog at www.readallday.org. It's also published at the conclusion of her wonderful Tolstoy and the Purple Chair.   Print this list Print this list
