My favourite book of all time. Still to this day. I’ve had this copy since I was 7.
Lesley and I were chatting about Watership Down today so I’ve decided to give it another read.
I first read this story when I was 6, and continued to read it over and over as I got older. each time I’d understand it differently and discover something new hidden in it’s words.
This is one of the oldest things I own. I love the cover art and the little illustrated map in the first pages before the story starts. I love all it’s tears and creases and stains and frayed corners and especially the way the pages smell when I run my thumb across them and quickly flip through it. I love that it holds so much to remember.
