    My Name is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok - This is one of my favorite books by Chaim Potok. I always learn so much about the orthodox Jewish culture when I read his stories. This book deals with a boy who struggles with his faith and his parents while trying to be true to himself. When I was younger, I related to Asher; now I relate to his parents.

    My Name Is Asher Lev by Chaim Potok was an amazing read. I was introduced to two worlds and really related to the main character through his family relationships. This was an interesting story about sometimes choosing (or accepting) the hard way when coming of age. [Book club book for October]

A story that leaves you a different person than before you read it is a precious treasure.

Charlottes Web by E.B. White. Read to our 4th grade class by our teacher Mrs.Pugh, how fun it was visualizing what the characters looked like in our minds, using our imaginations. Years later when the movie came out, it was great seeing them brought to life. Still one of my favorite children's books to this day!

Lady Chatterley´s Lover by D.H. Lawrence, first published in 1928. Lawrence’s novel attracted attention due to its use of words deemed “unpublishable”, as well as the taboo topic of inter-class sex. It wasn’t until 1960 that an unexpurgated copy was sold in the UK, and that was the basis for an obscenity trial. In Australia, not only was the book banned, but a book about the trial of the banning of the book was banned too.
