In 1840, British Astronomer and Chemist, Warren de la Rue, enclosed a platinum coil in a vacuum tube and passed an electric current through it, thus creating the world’s first light bulb – a full 40 years before Edison.

The Secret History , by Donna Tartt - The best time to read The Secret History is probably while you’re still in college, because it is about a secret society at a small liberal arts college gone horribly awry, but it is also worth picking up a few years later to be reminded about the intensity of college friendships, and also Ancient Greek.

"The Lovely Bones" by Alice Sebold - excellent but disturbing. I sold my copy on ebay when I was broke because as good as it was, I knew I'd never read it again. But absolutely worth reading once.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Haven't seen the movie yet. The book was good, but...odd. There were some things that I didn't understand why she added them in. Still enjoyed it though.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. I waited desperately for the movie to come out after reading it, and was a little disappointed. I wondered how a movie would capture the essence of the book, and in this case I'd stick with reading it first.
The Lovely Bones - Alice Sebold. I cried often reading this book, but it's one of the best I've read. HATED THE MOVIE!
Alice Sebold: The lovely bones I just finished this book after watching the movie. It is even better than the movie. Not that the movie disappoints at all. In Danish it is called Her fra min himmel
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold - great book. GREAT book. Terrible movie, even with Mark Wahlberg, my movie husband.

This book cover takes a unique and fresh approach to representing the classic tale of Moby-Dick. I think that the most successful part of this book cover is the fact that the designer was able to accurately communicate the message of the book, without using the cliched image of the whale itself and the book cover design also shows some constrained visual language effects.
This book cover takes a unique and different approach to representing the famous novel, 'Moby Dick'. In my opinion the most successful aspect of this design is that the designer was able to re interpret the idea of the main concept of the book without making it too cliche. This book cover design also features constrained visual language through its use of tightly knitted imagery and mainly through the way the coffin then leads onto the ship.

Herman Melville - Moby Dick. Everyone should read this book, then they'd know where the name "Starbucks" came from :)
November 20, 1819: Thomas Nickerson, fourteen, survives after a sperm whale attacks and sinks the Essex. Author Herman Melville writes "Moby-Dick" after hearing about the assault on the Essex.
Starbucks is named after a character from Moby Dick. In the famous 1851 book by writer Herman Melville, Starbuck is the name of the young chief mate who sails aboard the Pequod. Originally, the Starbucks' founders considered naming the coffee house 'Pequod.' Their first shop was located in Seattle's historic Pike Place Market, which was the heart of sea traders in the Pacific Northwest. They ended up choosing Starbucks as the name.
