I knew what it was to yearn for a life so distant it seemed that it had never been anything more than a dream.” ― Alice Hoffman, The Dovekeepers
Book review: Alice Hoffman’s ‘Dovekeepers’ builds on lives of Jewish heroines - The Washington Post
"The Dovekeepers: A Novel by Alice Hoffman - The Dovekeepers is my All-Time Favorite book. I recommend this book to anyone wanting to read something that matters. A deep, meaningful and perhaps mostly true story that will stay with you and make you think about it for a very long time. *PS I just noticed you can buy this book at Thriftbooks for less than 4.00 right now - so for the love of all that's good, get a copy NOW! :)"

My favorite books are about WW2. The resilience of that generation inspires me. I think our children should learn in greater detail the sacrifices that were made for our country and the world by these brave men and women. This book is about one such man and the many he served with and endured with. A must read for the history nerds like me!
Original pinner, "My book club read this when I was sick and they all have enjoyed it and have been passing it on to all of their friends/family who in turn pass it on. They tell me it is a must read nonfiction"
Just readd this with my book club...I learned so much about WWII and the human spirit!
Unbroken...Thank you Book Club! I wouldn't have read this without you! WOW!
Fabulous book. Movie production is underway.

kindles don't have this kind of magic. Real books will always have relevance, there's nothing like the smell of an old book, or a new one for that matter. Gotta admit, I love the Kindle app for living on an island with a limited selection though. True Bibliophiles gobble up whatever they can get their hands on. Love to read an old book with history, though.
"Kindles don't have this kind of magic." I don't believe that people who have Kindles are real book lovers. haha ;)
kindles don't have this kind of magic. The smell of really old books. The ache of reading little notes written to people long dead. The dry rustle of paper. The wrinkles in a book read in the bath. Lending books to special people...
Love the smell of real, old books! That's what I don't like about all the Kindles and stuff, people are missing out on the experience of books. I love going to Barnes & Noble to get a Starbucks and browse at the books. I could spend hours there!

“Censoring books that deal with difficult, adolescent issues does not protect anybody. Quite the opposite. It leaves kids in the darkness and makes them vulnerable. Censorship is the child of fear and the father of ignorance. Our children cannot afford to have the truth of the world withheld from them”—Laurie Halse Anderson

I loved all libraries as a child - the school library, the public library and even the very small one by our beach cottage. Endless possibilities! Now I download books from the library. Very convenient, but not quite the same.
📚I love the library. I could get lost there or in a bookstore forever📚📖 #MentalEscape

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, by Jamie Ford (Book Club Kit). Set in the ethnic neighborhoods of Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps of the era, this debut novel tells the heartwarming story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love Keiko Okabe.
2013: Set in the ethnic neighborhoods of Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps of the era, this debut novel tells the heartwarming story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love Keiko Okabe.
A boy of a Chinese-American family struggles with his identity when his best friend, a Japanese-American girl, is sent to an internment camp. Then years later their possessions are found in the basement of a hotel.
Set in Seattle during World War II and Japanese American internment camps of the time, this is a heartwarming story of widower Henry Lee, his father, and his first love.
I want to read this.... Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. A beautiful book that deals with a part of our history that is not often talked about--the life of Japanese Americans during WWII. Probably would have never read it if we hadn't picked it for book club. So glad I ddi!
Adding to my "to read" list. Apparently this book starts out right before the Japanese Americans were put into camps during WWII. Upper middle class school friends, one Chinese and one Japanese document the suffering of innocent families who lost everything. Upon growing up, the two friends reconnect under a very unique situation. Helps the reader understand what not only the families involved went through, but also those who were left behind.
