    I read this a long time ago and I think I was too young to appreciate it. I do remember reading it but I don't remember the story! I will give it another read this summer!

    Love this book! Read it in high school and then again a few years ago in a book club. Real characters that stay in your memory forever.

    It's not about adultery and suicide (per Virginia's comment). It's a book about marriage. In Tolstoy's writing, we have his version of a horrible marriage (Anna), an 'average' marriage (her brother Oblonsky), and an excellent marriage (Kitty). I believe this is an excellent book for any woman to have as a favorite, and if you don't know that, perhaps you should read it (or reread it).

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen- I've read this book at least 10 times and I fall in love with it even more each time.

A novel by L. M. Montgomery. The story of an orphan girl finding family, happiness, and a community to call home.

A tale of two cities by Charles Dickens

The Poisionwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver is a wonderful read. The book is about a missionany family in the Congo. The chapters are written by the female family member's perspective. It is a great read. I absolutely love this book. I have re-read it a couple of times because it is that good.

Title: The Great Gatsby Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald Artist: Unknown We've all seen an awful lot of covers for F. Scott Fitzgerald's widely read classic but none of them scream cool quite as much as this one does. From the yellow backdrop to the monochromatic man to the fact that he's using the damn 'Y' as a cocktail glass, it's an undeniably attention-grabbing image.

    Wake of broken dreams after Daisy swept by. All the pieces to be put back together by someone else.

This is a classic story of sisterly love, compassion and goodness. It was also one of the first novels that I read to myself as a little girl.

"The truth was that Jay Gatsby, of West Egg, Long Island, sprang from his Platonic conception of himself. He was a son of God—a phrase which, if it means anything, means just that—and he must be about His Father’s business, the service of a vast, vulgar, and meretricious beauty. So he invented just the sort of Jay Gatsby that a seventeen year old boy would be likely to invent, and to this conception he was faithful to the end."

A Must Read!!!

Such a good classic! I can still remember being required to read this in school. It just didn't seem right that such a phenomenal book was REQUIRED!

Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy - I have this very edition isn't it beautiful?

The story line in this one reminds me of The Time Traveler's Wife. They've also made this book into a cheesy Lifetime movie.
