Books Covers, Worth Reading, North Korean, Orphan Master, Master Sons, Books Worth, Books Books, Adam Johnson, Adamjohnson
The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson. Jun Do is The Orphan Master’s Son, a North Korean citizen with a rough past who is working as a government-sanctioned kidnapper when we first meet him. Through Jun Do’s story we realize that beneath the weight of oppression and lies beats a heart not much different from our own—one that thirsts for love, acceptance, and hope—and that realization is at the heart of this shockingly believable, immersive, and thrilling novel. 3/17/14
#AdamJohnson The Orphan Master's Son - Pak Jun Do knows he is special He knows he must be the son of the master of the orphanage, not some kid dumped by his parents - it was obvious from the way his father singled him out for beatings. He knows he is special when he is picked as a spy and kidnapper for his country, the glorious Democratic Republic of North Korea. He knows he must find his true love, Sun Moon, the greatest opera star who ever lived, before it's too late.

Glass Box inside of the house
Glass Reading Room — My only worry? UV damage to the books. Hope those windows have museum-grade UV protection.
So when I have a dream house I could have a glass room for a library? Awesome.
home library with all windows. best space ive seen
Window library. I love this! I'd definitely have a beanbag in the library! :) The full glass walls and ceiling are absolutely brilliant for London with it's lack of sunlight - it would maximize light in an otherwise dark-ish part of the house. Double or triple glazing required of course!

My very most favorite book. Ever. The Blind Assassin: A Novel by Margaret Atwood, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0385720955/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_GcVLqb1AJQX7S
Sartorial Book Club: R29ers Divulge Their Favorite Reads #refinery29 http://www.refinery29.com/57855#slide-17 Neha Gandhi, executive editor, featuresThe Book: The Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood "This book is one of Atwood's most accessible novels, since only part of the plot involves a futuristic, sci-fi element. It's a fascinating character study and an interesting look back at the '30s and '40s (albeit in Ontario, where the history is a bit less familiar to me). It's beautifully written, compelling from beginning to end, and keeps you on your toes the entire time. But, at the same time, it breaks from the plot consistently to take you into the story-within-a-story that its protagonist is writing. And, somehow, this manages not to be jarring. Basically, this book is proof that the Man Booker Prize winners are always the best reads. Every. Single. Time."The Blind Assassin, $12.15, available at Amazon.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo: Book 1 of the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson. The book was hard to get into but once I did there was no putting it down. The movie was one of the few that did the book justice. I can't wait to read the other 2 of the trilogy.
