A book that makes you happy...


All books make me happy, just by being books. Most of my favorite books, in their plots, don't make me happy, but make me feel other things - awe, disgust, fear, inspiration, excitement. To find a book that makes me happy, I'd have to go back to my childhood, where stories were simpler. My absolute favorite children's book was Charlotte's Web. A spider who writes words? An adorable pig? A gluttonous rat? Lasting friendship and tenderness? How can you not be happy when you read that? I still have my original copy, that I got for one Christmas from my parents. 


Not only did that book make me happy at the time, but it makes me happy still.
