1868. The Moonstone. Generally considered the first detective novel in the English language.

The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, 1868. It is said that he wrote this as the first detective novel ever written. A movie I saw of this book did not do it justice at all. It left out the most exciting parts! I agree with the previous pinner's note below...great book! ( I love this book!!! Its a must read classic).

'The Moonstone' by Wilkie Collins. I love old books and a mystery. I will know before the first paragraph is over if I will read it through.
"Human life, Mr Betteredge, is a sort of target - misfortune is always firing at it, and always hitting the mark". The moonstone, Wilkie Collins
“She was unlike most girls of her age, in this--that she had ideas of her own" -Wilkie Collins, The Moonstone #books #read #story #stories #tales #book #reading #adventure #romance #fiction #nonfiction #escape #fantasy #cover #literature #design #sleeve

The Realm of Books: BOOK REVIEW: Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Veronica ... #veronicaroth #bookreview #books #bookshelf #bookblog #internet
Book Cover Image. Title: Allegiant (Divergent Series #3), Author: Veronica Roth
Allegiant, the final book in Veronica Roth's Divergent Trilogy. Almost done w this! Gonna be hard waiting for the next two movies
Allegiant - by Veronica Roth ............ k, I kinda' refused to post this on Books worth reading, because from this point, or actually a bit early on, it changed to totally teenage novel.. Anyways, conclusive book whatsoever, suddenly having two person point of view was a bit awkward, but I guess that's what she thought as the best to have full story told while keeping it first person narrative. Anyways. The first one was interesting enough so.. keeping in this category. :-P
Allegiant (Divergent Series) [Kindle Edition] What if your whole world was a lie? What if a single revelation—like a single choice—changed everything? What if love and loyalty made you do things you never expected? The explosive conclusion to Veronica Roth's #1 New York Times bestselling Divergent trilogy reveals the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.
what high heels do to your feet -X-Ray of foot in high heeled shoe.......! Just look at the physical stress that is placed on the joints!!! It is very sad to see what people do to themselves "physically" in the name of fashion. Its harmful "morally" and also "physically" so STOP just coping blindly other fools.... 2 lines of knowledge can make you more attractive than 2 inches of heel. Avoid it, YOUR health is more important
I know they "look good" but look what high heels do to your feet.
Shoes, Wear Heels, Fashion, It Hurts, Beautiful, Xray, High Heels, Worth It, X Ray
Think about the future health of your feet and knees when you wear uncomfortable shoes. You want to be able to walk well when you grow old. There are lots of really beautiful flat heeled shoes. -I love to wear heels, but it's true!
Xray of a foot in a high heel shoe- or: Ouch why I don't wear heels
X-Ray of foot in high heeled shoe! - Beyond every postural deviation/compensation that must happen above, just look at the physical stress that is placed on the metatarsophalangeal joints! It is sad to see what people do to themselves in the name of fashion. Shoes are a true art form but I won't wear heels.
Repinned text: My doctor showed me something like this a couple years ago to help explain what damage from "cute" shoes had done to my bones. Completely not worth it and I love my Fluevogs and Anyi Lu's so much! Such a wasted misunderstanding of fashion when I see others doing this damage.
High heels + X rays.... This is why I don't wear heels, scary
X-Ray of foot in high heeled shoe.. OUCH!! yeah we killin them with our heels, but guys don't know how much it hurts:) lol

Trixie Belden started my love of reading. I don't recall which book it was, but I got a Trixie Belden book as a present on Christmas Eve some time in the late 70's and I read until my parents told me to go to bed. I've been hooked ever since and I still stay up too late because I don't want to put my book down.
my friends were all in to Nancy Drew but I was more of a Trixie Beldon Girl :)

reading quote <3
The greatest escape. This, this is going to be my next big goal. To become a disciplined reader again. I enjoyed reading so much when I was younger. Then, for many years, I was unable to do so (long story). Now I've reached a point in my life where I can indulge myself again. And with reading lists from friends like Maggie and my daughter Marissa, I'm going to do it. Just you wait and see.

Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad. (harper lee, to kill a mockingbird)- This is one of my favorite books I read in high school. :)
To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books and movie adaptations, and I get something out of it with each reading. This is storytelling in rare form; Lessons are scarce in today's reality TV atmosphere. This is a book that will help you escape.

Mists of Avalon
The Women, Worth Reading, Marion Zimmer, Mists Of Avalon, Legends, Books Worth, King Arthur, Zimmer Bradley, Favorite Books
The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley. My favorite fantasy novel. Fantasy isn't my favorite genre, but this is a book worth reading and re-reading. A story set during the Arthurian era, much of it told from a woman's perspective, about what life was like back in those days when Christianity was gaining steam. A wonderful story, and well written.
One of my All TIme Favorite Books! "There is no such thing as a true tale. Truth has many faces and the truth is like to the old road to Avalon; it depends on your own will, and your own thoughts, whither the road will take you." The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley. Pinner writes: "The magical legend of King Arthur vividly retold through the eyes and lives of the women who wielded power from behind the throne - Guinevere, the Lady of the Lake, and Morgan Le Fay (Morgaine.)"
The ultimate feminist book!

Book Review: Full Frontal Feminism
Full Frontal Feminism: A Young Woman's Guide to Why Feminism Matters - Feminism isn't dead. It just isn't very cool anymore. Enter Full Frontal Feminism, a book that embodies the forward-looking messages that author Jessica Valenti propagates on her popular website, Feministing.com. Covering a range of topics, including pop culture, health, reproductive rights, violence, education, relationships, and more, Valenti provides young women a primer on why feminism matters. Valenti knows better than anyone that young women need a smart-ass book that deals with real-life issues in a style they can relate to. No rehashing the same old issues. No belaboring where today's young women have gone wrong. Feminism should be something young women feel comfortable with, something they can own. Full Frontal Feminism is sending out the message to readers — yeah, you're feminists, and that's actually pretty frigging cool.
