The Robe ~ Lloyd C. Douglas. Pinner writes: "Very interesting and well written historical fiction centered around what happened to Jesus's robe after the Roman soldiers cast lots for it. Obviously cannot be considered 'Gospel Truth', but I believe it was written from a place of faith and gives a glimpse of what life may have been like in those times. One of the best book I've ever read. Very touching - a great story."

It took me awhile but I still think of this book - going to reread it one day.

J.K. Rowling: The Wizard Behind Harry Potter by Marc Shapiro. This book is copyrighted for 2000, so it only discusses Jo's early life (up to Goblet of Fire). Still, it was interesting. (Beware of grammatical mistakes. I found plenty.)

The Graveyard Book want to read #NeilGaiman
The Graveyard Book Ala Notable Children's Books. Middle Readers: Amazon.de: Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean: Fremdsprachige Bücher
The Graveyard Book : Neil Gaiman, Dave McKean - Its a good book for young adults or adults, but I definitely wouldn't read it to kids. It is a story about a young boy whose family is murdered, so he is raised by the ghost in a graveyard. Fun as a ghost story as well as the story of a boy figuring out the world as he grows up.
Wow, what a terrific, readable, doorstop of a book this is about a remarkable man. I surely do recommend it.
David Mccullough, Worth Reading, American Stories, Mccullough Books, Books Worth, U.S. Presidents, Favorite Books, Harry Truman, Biographies
David McCullough's 1992 biography of Harry Truman, America's 33rd President, won the Pulitzer Prize and remains one of the finest books I've ever read. To be sure McCullough is not a scholarly writer, but his approachable prose opens up history to his readers and gives the reader a sense of what Truman accomplished as President. Great history lesson
Truman - David McCullough; Probably my favorite David McCullough book.
The life of Harry S. Truman is one of the greatest of American stories, filled with vivid characters -- Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Wallace Truman, George Marshall, Joe McCarthy, and Dean Acheson -- and dramatic events. In this riveting biography, acclaimed historian David McCullough not only captures the man -- a more complex, informed, and determined man than ever before imagined -- but also the turbulent times in which he rose, boldly, to meet unprecedented challenges. The last president to serve as a living link between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, Truman's story spans the raw world of the Missouri frontier, World War I, the powerful Pendergast machine of Kansas City, the legendary Whistle-Stop Campaign of 1948, and the decisions to drop the atomic bomb, confront Stalin at Potsdam, send troops to Korea, and fire General MacArthur. Drawing on newly discovered archival material and extensive interviews with Truman's own family, friends, and Washington colleagues, McCullough tells the deeply moving story of the seemingly ordinary "man from Missouri" who was perhaps the most courageous president in our history.

Below stairs : the classic kitchen maid's memoir that inspired "Upstairs, Downstairs" and "Downton Abbey" by Margaret Powell, 92 Powell | #downtonabbey (click book cover to place a hold)
Below Stairs by Margaret Powell. Autobiography. In the early 1900‘s young Margaret Powell entered into domestic service in England. She bravely chose to move to other positions until she knew enough to become a cook, one of the most coveted positions among those "downstairs." The book jacket says this memoir inspired Downton Abbey. It matches the Downton Abbey theme. Nice read. Short. 8 out of 10.

"Mistress of the Monarchy: The Life of Katherine Swynford, Duchess of Lancaster" by Alison Weir. You can never go wrong with historian Alison Weir, and her biography on one of my favorite historical figures is meticulously researched and interesting; it is well worth reading!
