Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail (Oprah's Book Club 2.0) by Cheryl Strayed - A woman decided to walk the Pacific Crest Trail as a way to put her life back on track. Looks interesting.
It's topped the best-seller's list for a long time now and was named as one of Oprah's Book Club picks. After the devastating loss of her mother and hitting rock bottom, Cheryl Strayed hikes the 1,100 mile Pacific Crest Trail that runs through California
We are all damaged goods. It is what you choose to do with what is left over that determines if you will still be a gift or a burden to yourself and to others. And on the day of Philip Seymour Hoffman's untimely and senseless death, I just finished a book by someone whose journey of body and soul likely saved her from a similar demise. "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed is a book worth reading. I highly recommend it to everyone, so that you too can be a gift.

Catch-22 | 32 Books That Will Actually Change Your Life
Catch 22, Reading List, Books Books, Favorite Book, Books To Read, Joseph Rather
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. I got a free copy of this book at my son's back to school night. Same cover shown. Guess I have another book to read!
“Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them. With Major Major it had been all three. Even among men lacking all distinction he inevitably stood out as a man lacking more distinction than all the rest, and people who met him were always impressed by how unimpressive he was.” Joseph Heller; Catch-22, 1953
Catch 22 by Joseph Heller is number 50 on our list of 100 Books to Read Before You Die. A classic American novel, extremely funny, and responsible for the coining of a new phrase. The hero, bombardier Yossarian, invents endless schemes to save his skin from the horrible trials of war. His only problem is Colonel Cathcart, who keeps raising the number of missions the men must fly to complete their service.

The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier | One of the most controversial YA novels of all time, The Chocolate Waris amodern masterpiece that speaks to fans of S. E. Hinton’s The Outsiders and John Knowles’s A Separate Peace. #bannedbooksweek
All of these themes are evident in his young adult classic and best-known book, "The Chocolate War," A 15-year-old fan of his said, "You always write from inside the person." Description from skylightbooks.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
The Chocolate War Stunned by his mother's recent death and appalled by the way his father sleepwalks through life, Jerry Renault, a New England high school student, ponders the poster in his locker-"Do I dare disturb the universe?"
After suffering rejection from seven major publishers, The Chocolate War made its debut in 1974, and quickly became a bestselling—and provocative—classic for young adults. This chilling portrait of an all-boys prep school casts an unflinching eye on the pitfalls of conformity and corruption in our most elite cultural institutions.
