I get such joy when I lend a book that I love, a real favorite, to a friend, and they end up loving it, too! Recently I lent a friend The Forgotten Door by Alexander Key–one of my very favorite MG fantasy books–and she loved it! It gave me such good feeling to hear back how much she loved it as well.
The Forgotten Door is a fantastic story, AND I love the ethics in it as well, the way that Jon is so very caring and kind and ethical, and uses his telepathy and other powers to help others, not hurt them–and how this is contrasted by greedy, brutal people. At the same time, Jon is helped by some very good people, and it always gives me hope to read this book. If you’re looking for a good read, I hope you’ll pick it up.
Have you lent a favorite book to a friend and had them love it, too? What books have you lent out?
