Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday
is a weekly/monthly event hosted by me here at Take Me Away. (I used to do it once a week, then once a month, and I'll admit it's now sort of sporadic!) It debuted on July 2, 2009.  The purpose is to highlight a "throwback" or an older book that deserves some recognition.

Throwbacks can be:
  • a book you've read and loved, or a book you've always wanted to read
  • a book that brings back memories for you
  • from as far back as your childhood, or just from last year
  • a classic or a hidden gem
Anyone can participate.  Just grab one of the icons and post your throwback on Thursday.  Then leave a comment on my Throwback Thursday so everyone can stop by your blog too!
