'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' by Maya Angelou | Maya Angelou - a wonderful author of many books - an extraordinary human being. #books #reading #MayaAngelou
I always enjoyed reading, but this was the first life-altering experience I had with narrative. Well, I guess I can't say that... but it was different. I was 19. My tastes already ran to memoir, but Maya Angelou is ... someone I can't characterize, except to say I'm humbled and inspired.
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou. I read this when I was 14, and it's still one of my lifetime favorite books. You can just feel Maya's soul pulsating on each page.
In memory of Maya Angelou - worth reading.

Memoirs of a Geisha. One of my top 5 favorite books of all time. I was lucky enough to meet Arthur Golden and have him autograph my (very tattered) copy. I don't care if it's historically accurate- it's a lush, wonderful story.

The separate but "equal" south from "the help" and one brave white woman's perspective. The dialogue alone makes this book worth reading.

Worth Reading, Books Club, Secret Fans, Books Worth, Snow Flowers, Novels, Historical Fiction, Great Books, The Secret
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See Lily and Snow Flower become laotong (old sames), a friendship that lasts through their lives and hardships. But things aren't always what they seem. This is a fabulous historical novel about friendship, betrayal, love, and freedom. A sweeping picture of 19th-century China evolves, and I was fascinated. I'm definitely going to watch the movie. Any of See's books are winners for lovers of historical fiction.

If you ever get sad because you loved a book and it is over too soon, grab this one. It is ginormous and worth every page. The author draws you in with perfectly imperfect characters and teaches you a lot about WWII at the same time! The best part is that there is a second book, War and Remembrance, which follows the storyline for another 1056 pages! In literary nirvana....

The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. This is one of my all-time favorite books. Well-written, powerful and historically accurate in the smallest details, it will leave an impression on your mind and soul for days after you read the final word. I've read it seven times, and each time enjoy it as if it was the first.
