A memoir of love, loss, and lost toenails. Strayed seamlessly weaves together the story of her past with the story of her solo hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. Beautifully described scenery, lots of interesting facts about the trail, and an emotionally charged narrative made for an amazing read.

Was Jay Gatsby great or just a big fool? I say the greatest ever - if for no other reason than he followed his heart and stuck with his girl to his bitter end. Laughing stock or not - he left the world still hoping , still believing , still dreaming that he'd get his girl. That's love and that's all that matters to me!💙

Franz Kafka - The Trial. free e-book available online http://www.holybooks.com/the-trial-by-franz-kafka/ or http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/7849
Franz Kafka's "The Trial." Read this and you will forever have doubts about the judicial system.
Franz Kafka The Trial Joseph K, a respectable functionary in a bank, who is suddenly arrested and must defend his innocence against a charge about which he can get no information. vision of the excesses of modern bureaucracy wedded to the mad agendas of C20 totalitarian regimes. sheer incompetence of K's tormentors is often laugh out loud funny. persistent attempts to break through walls of ignorance, silence and confusion become darkly tragic in the final pages of the book.
"Franz Kafka - The Trial "What do you want to know now?" asks the doorkeeper; "you are insatiable." "Everyone strives to reach the Law," says the man, "so how does it happen that for all these many years no one but myself has ever begged for admittance?" The doorkeeper recognizes that the man has reached his end, and, to let his failing senses catch the words, roars in his ear: "No one else could ever be admitted here, since this gate was made only for you. I am now going to shut it."

To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee. What a great, classic novel! Harper Lee said it was just a simple love story, and I agree. It's about loving people enough to look behind the facades they put up and find out who they truly are. And if I can be as half as cool as Atticus if I'm ever a parent, then I'll be happy.

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Quite possibly my favorite book. I've read this one twice: once, when I was eleven, and though I missed many of its larger themes about society, I was still moved by the story of the children growing up in such a conflicted world; the second time I read it I was in high school, and the book took on a much wider, deeper meaning, and even though I knew the ending already it hit me even harder than it did the first time.

Worth Reading, Junot Díaz, Short Stories, Books Worth, Reading List, Drown, Junot Diaz, New Jersey
Drown by Junot Diaz (finished 1/26/2015) Collection of linked short stories is raw and emotionally charged - so well crafted, gritty, and thought-provoking. Diaz is a master storyteller.
Drown (collection of short stories)- another incredibly moving author, Junot Diaz, I wish he would write more in English!
NEW JERSEY: "Drown" by Junot Díaz. Based on his own experiences as a Dominican immigrant who moved to New Jersey, the 10 short stories in "Drown" perfectly tell of the struggles the New Jersey immigrant community faces, from poverty to homesickness to the language barrier. The outlook is often grim, but told in Díaz's riveting and intoxicating narrative we manage to see the characters' unsentimental determination for a better life.

*saved in downloads-- “I thought leaving home for college would be the hard part. As it turns out, the hard part was going back home to visit family and friends who, each year, seemed more distant. (I’m sure the feeling was mutual.) This distance between people who leave and people who stay is at the heart of Junot Díaz’s short story ‘Drown.’ One friend goes to college, the other stays in their North Jersey hometown and despite their promises to stay in touch, life floods in like water,
Junot Diaz's first book, the short story collection Drown, was a literary sensation when it hit the bookstores in the 90s. This young narrative voice, fresh and electrifying, is centred in the projects of low-income urban New Jersey, capturing a contemporary immigrant experience in an America that has often been cast away to the margins. The language rings hard and true, as gems of wisdom emanate between the lines. Diaz would later go on to win the Pulitzer for fiction. Chosen by John C. in Wpg.

Orwell’s second best-selling novel behind 1984 was rejected four times before going on to sell 20 million copies. The main problem Orwell faced was the simple fact that his book critiqued communism while the USSR was a critical ally of the UK during WWII. What is truly interesting about this novel’s rejection though is the fact that author T.S. Eliot wrote one of the rejection letters himself, explaining “We have no conviction that this is the right point of view from which to criticize the political situation at the current time.” It wasn’t until a few months after the war ended that Orwell was able to secure a publisher for the story. The rest is literary history.

1984 - George Orwell I avoided school assigned books like the plague until this one...my sophomore year of high school. 1984 was a great experience that will always give me nightmares of rat helmets and big brother!
1984 by George Orwell - This is probably hands down, #1 Favorite book of all time! A lot of things can be relevant today even in a capitalist society.
1984 - George Orwell Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities.
'1984' by George Orwell = Speaking of haunting, allow me to present the book that can turn you into a fetal curl of paranoia. Of all the books on this list, 1984 is probably the easiest to read and the most widely referenced. Ever hear of Big Brother, the Thought Police, or Thoughtcrime? All from this novel. Read it, and just try to remain calm.
my favorite book!! "Thought Police." "Big Brother." "Orwellian." These words have entered our vocabulary because of George Orwell's classic dystopian novel, 1984. The story of one man's nightmare odyssey as he pursues a forbidden love affair through a world ruled by warring states and a power structure that controls not only information but also individual thought and memory, 1984 is a prophetic, haunting tale. Big brother is watching you!
1984 by George Orwell (Big Brother IS Watching) - one of my favorites
