The Glass Castle is a memoir recalling Jeannette Walls' transient youth and her bohemian parents. Together her family traipsed across the Southwest, settling temporarily in desert towns and mountain campsites. But when the money ran out and the romance of the wandering life faded, the family settled into a sedentary life in West Virginia, which was soon darkened by alcoholism and dysfunction. Walls eventually left this life, but she looks back on it with honesty and compassion.

    The Camoldun Seires by Jack Whyte. It is about the story of how Camelot came to be from generations before. It is a wonderful series. No time travel but romance, adventure, great characters. The Falco Series by Lindsey Davis is also one of my favorites.

    There used to be a bookstore in Ohio that sold both new and used books. They always put a bookmark in each book and it always had something to do with banned books. I have read every book on this poster! I love banned books.

even better than the kite runner.

The Red Tent. One of my all time favorites.

Can't wait to read it again.
