Dearie by Bob Spitz. It is rare for someone to emerge in America who can change our attitudes, our beliefs, and our very culture. It is even rarer when that someone is a middle-aged, six-foot three-inch woman whose first exposure to an unsuspecting public is cooking an omelet on a hot plate on a local TV station. And yet, that is exactly what Julia Child did

Probably my all time favourite book. I always thought I'd name my first born son Owen because of it...but by that time the name was too popular.
“Summer Reads Giveaway” suggestion from Kathy Hutchison. Kathy says, “A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving is a great story with great characters. One of my all time favorites!”
A Prayer for Owen Meany tells the story of two boys growing up in a small town. This book is comical, heartbreaking, and reads like real life. This is my first John Irving book and I found it to be quite an interesting read!
John Irving's best novel. One of my all time favorite books!!!!!

Need to tick this off of my "to read list"
Book worth reading
Today’s post is brought to you by the letter L. Picking my favorite five books in 26 different genres isn’t easy. Some genres have TONS of great books, and other letters don’t really have obvious genres. So I’m cheating and doubling up. I know that C was for classic, and I already told you about my five favorite classics. But L is for Literature, so now I’m going to tell you about five more. Aren’t I crafty? What’s your favorite l gem? A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving. I almost went with a different John Irving book, but couldn’t keep Owen Meany off my list. This was one of my absolute favorite books as a teenager. Owen is just such an unusual character. Also, John Irvings books are all good at forcing me to think. I don’t necessarily love them as much while I’m reading them, but I spend weeks thinking about them after I’ve turned the last page. A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare. I almost put Hamlet on this list, because it’s well Hamlet. But I think Midsummer is my favorite of Shakespeare’s plays, so I decided to list it instead. I love them all though. Shakespeare is remembered and revered for a reason, he wrote so many amazing plays and poems, it’s hard to believe he was only one guy. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. Dickens is kind of like Shakespeare, a great master. I love A Tale of Two Cities partially because it’s a great book, and partially out of nostalgia. It was the first bedtime story my mom read to me in our new home after we moved when I was nine. Yes, I loved Dickens when I was nine, and yes, hearing his words made me feel at home in a new place. The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux. Before it was a great musical, it was a great book. It’s an interesting mystery that is definitely worth reading. Or I guess you could just visit Broadway and listen to the music of the night instead. Even though I love this book, it is kind of weird reading it—there aren’t any musical interludes, in Phantom. So bazaar. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. Another timeless classic, kind of. That’s the thing about classics. People always claim that they’re timeless, and quote them and relate to them now. And really great books do transcend time, to an extent. But come on, today people don’t marry their first cousins, and four miles is never an impenetrable distance. It’s the history that comes with the story that I actually like best about most classics. Tune back in tomorrow for the letter M. Also don't forget to enter my 100 followers contest.

Little House on the Prairie, Read it about three times(the entire series) and I still love reading it.
My first Little House book that my Mom bought me in 1976, when I was in 4th grade....through the years I collected all of them. I still have them and pull them out and read them on occasion, I will always love the stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Little House books...when I was a kid, our teachers in the primary grades would read these books to us for a while every afternoon, after we came in from recess...I loved these stories; remember "Little House in the Big Woods"?
Little House On The Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. One of my childhood favorites.
Oh! who could forget the wonderful Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder! Wonderful!!

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (Paperback) - $3.99, via Bonanza - Here is the classic story of American hope during the Great Depression by John Steinbeck. A great classic for anyone's personal library.
The Grapes of Wrath is a landmark of American literature. A portrait of the conflict between the powerful and the powerless, of one man’s fierce reaction to injustice, and of one woman’s stoical strength, the novel captures the horrors of the Great Depression and probes into the very nature of equality and justice in America…
