A love letter prompted by Nobel 2007

The Literature Nobel 2007 to Doris Lessing sets Jenny in the  path of writing a love letter to one of the libraries of her childhood. In the process, Jenny also tells her favourite Lessing novel, and how her novels might resonate better with serious and eager teenage readers. The piece, peppered with information about the teacher who sent Jenny in the path of reading, her teenage reading habits, her current reading habits, and the books that influenced her reading, is one of the must-read posts (and, also a great (if personal) response to the Nobel announcement that I have seen so far).
