Musing Mondays

MizB over at Should be Reading asks:

Do you ever read a word or phrase that sparks a specific place or setting in your mind and makes you crave to read a book with that type of place/setting in it?

This actually happened to me last week.  I’m reading The Thorn Birds at the moment and something about it set up a longing for Gone With the Wind and, really, anything else of that nature.  I suppose there are similarities between the books – they’re long, romance-led aga-sagas which I’ve read many times before, often in summer.

Isn’t it odd how one book leads to another?
