Best Read-Aloud Books - ScholasticWhen I was my twenties, I traveled with a good friend to Switzerland to visit another dear friend, who was living and working in Geneva at the time. We wandered the city, stopping for pastries in every coffeeshop we passed. We took the train high up into the Alps and hiked through the breathtaking countryside. It was a magical night. We passed the book—an old paperback of mine—back and forth between us, letting the words flow over and around us. I remember at one point we looked at the clock and saw how late it was. There was something spellbinding about the act of reading that spare, haunting, graceful book to each other.
