Touching Spirit Bear This is the latest book I read it showed me that no matter what you can forgive. That is what this author has showed me. I think that I could use this in life.
Reading in high school was a literacy technique that was used every single day. In highschool I read this book multiple times. I love the flow of the book and just the overall setting and feeling. I could almost picture myself in the story. After reading this book, I try to picture myself in the stories and in things I need to learn. This is a very useful and helpful technique I've used over the years and was first brought upon this technique in high school.
Ben Mikaelsen Cole receives a one-year banishment to a remote Alaskan island.
Loved the book from the first time I read it! I need to read it again!

Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. - Robert Frost..Stay Golden! :) This was probably my all time favorite book when I was a teenager lol
THE CONVIVIAL BOOK CLUB Wednesday, February 13 7:00 p.m. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton "In a book now considered a classic, Ponyboy can count only on his friends when it comes to mixing it up with the Socs, a gang of rich kids who like nothing better than beating up on greasers like himself." -- Booklist (Booklist )
The book everyone ELSE had to read in 7th grade English class. I was never assigned "The Outsiders," so I borrowed my cousin's copy, read it myself and never gave it back. I read it at least once a year to this day.
The Outsiders. I read this book when I was in middle school. It's the first book that ever made me cry. Stay gold!
The Outsiders (*I had this book with this picture on it.One of my all time favorite books. I was about 13 or 14 when I first read this book and I could swear that the author followed me around my whole life and wrote down everything I'd ever felt. It made a powerful impact on me. I related to so many of the characters, I felt they were my friends.Stay gold,Ponyboy,stay gold._LL)
The Outsiders my favorite book and movie ever! Probably read it a thousand times
The Outsiders . . . never too old for this one, a favorite since high school.

The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. -Really good book, touched my heart, definitely recommend.

Night. Currently reading for school. A very, VERY unique and interesting perspective of the Holocaust and thus far it has been very eye opening and SO sad. I've only just begun, but it's so hard to hear about how the Jewish people in these situations tried to ignore the bad things surrounding them until they broke (mentally or physically). We need to learn that ignoring the monsters dose not make them disappear.
Book Club, High School, Holocaust Survivor, Amazing Book, Books Books, Elie Wiesel, Favorite Books
Night- Elie Wiesel...this is such an amazing book. I read it in high school and I have never forgotten it.
The harrowing true story of a Holocaust survivor and his experiences with his father in the Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps in 1944-45 Nazi Germany. For readers of The Book Thief #Holocaust #MLIS7423
Night - Elie Wiesel This is also one of my favorite books to teach. It's about a father and son trying to survive the concentration camps during the Holocaust. My students and I wrote to the author this past school year and he actually wrote back to us!
Night (Oprah's Book Club) [Paperback], (holocaust, concentration camp, history, jewish, biography, world war ii, oprah, personal narratives, oprah book club, elie wiesel)
Night is Elie Wiesel’s masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps.
Elie Wiesel "Night"..had the pleasure of meeting this man and attending one of his classes for a projet in high shool, humbling experience. My best friend and I ended up bringing a Holocaust survivor to our shool.
Night is a work by Elie Wiesel about his experience with his father in the Nazi German concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald in 1944–1945, at the height of the Holocaust and toward the end of the Second World War. Read it!!!
"Night" by Elie Wiesel -- Read it for my sophomore English class. I wasn't able to take the book out of my hands until I finished it. It's such a wonderful and powerful book, although it's upsetting as you read the hard, horrific, and traumatic happenings. I honestly have to say it's at the top of my favorite books.
Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. Elie Wiesel reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchwald concentration camps.
What can I possibly say about this book? It's one of the best stories and most well-written books ever. Bradbury, as always, relied heavily on his reader's information to fill in the gaps, and usually, I find that sloppy writing, but with this--with this story--it works; like a haunting nightmare hovering on the edge of your memory. Ah, great stories and fantastic writing make me swoon :D
Reading this on account of the Vlogbrothers (Hank and John Green, the creators of Nerdfighteria) who are doing an internet book club. AMAZING thus far. On page 49.
Fahrenheit 451, Banned Book, High School, Favorite Books, Books Book, Time Favorite, Fiction Book, Ray Bradbury
"Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury was the very first science fiction book I read and I just loved it. "Books are to remind us what asses and fools we are.” ~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This might be my favorite book ever! (Or close to it!) I LOVED it.
"Fahrenheit 451" - Ray Bradbury I read this in high school. Pretty good book for a SciFi story.
I pinned this under art (maybe prophetic art). Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Perhaps the most ironic banned book situation, Fahrenheit 451 deals with the issue of censorship in a dystopian society that sends firefighters out to burn down houses discovered to have books inside. Those opposed to this book claim various reasons for banning it including profanity, portrayal of smoking and drinking, and anti-religious and anti-establishment sentiments.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This has to be one of the coolest book covers ever.

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. 1 vote for favorite book. "Ender's Game is one of my favorite books because it pushes the boundaries between what is morally right and wrong and what is acceptable.

In 1920, a baby was born with cerebral palsy. His parents did everything they could to care for him, but they finally had to make a difficult choice - the infant, Petey, was given into the care of the state. Petey was misdiagnosed as an idiot and sent to live in a mental institution. His life within the boundaries of the institution was unimaginable by modern standards. Yet still, the boy touched many who knew him, amazing them with his joy and zest for life.

The Relentless Reader: The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian
Book Club, Armenian Heritage, Books I Ve, Reading List, Girls Chris, Sandcastle Girls, Favorite Author, Chris Bohjalian
" The Sandcastle Girls" by Chris Bohjalian---Set against the backdrop of the 1915 Armenian genocide in Turkey, this tale is told alternately by a Bostonian woman in Turkey to provide aid to the refugees and her granddaughter in the present day. Bohjalian's novels are true to human nature and rich in setting. One of my new favorite authors! --Nancy Ehas, Director
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian ~ was on my to read list. Very good. One of my favorite authors
Not only do I think The Sandcastle Girls is Chris Bohjalian’s best book yet, it’s also one of the best books I’ve ever read. I’d go so far as to call it a masterpiece. It’s the only time I can ever remember finding myself reading every paragraph twice . . . it’s just that beautifully written and moving (and brought me to tears more times than I can count).
The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian | Fiction | Parallel stories of a woman who falls in love with an Armenian soldier during the Armenian Genocide and a modern-day New Yorker prompted to rediscover her Armenian past. | Find it at PCLS: http://catalog.popelibrary.org/polaris/
'The Sandcastle Girls' by Chris Bohjalian: A historical love story inspired by the author's Armenian heritage.
'The Sandcastle Girls' by Chris Bohjalian: A historical love story inspired by the author's Armenian heritage finds early 20th-century nurse Elizabeth Endicott arriving in Syria to help deliver food and medical aid to genocide refugees, a volunteer service during which she exchanges letters with an Armenian engineer and widower.
As in Jodi Picoult's The Storyteller, war and genocide form the backdrop of this thought-provoking novel from an author known for examining hot-button issues in small town settings. But The Sandcastle Girls is nevertheless a bit of a departure for Chris Bohjalian, combining as it does a present-day setting with a historical love story (inspired by Bohjalian's Armenian heritage) set in 1915 Syria, during the Armenian genocide.
The Sandcastle Girls, Chris Bohjalian. Pinner writes: "Depicts the Armenian genocide & 1 contemporary novelist's quest to uncover her heritage. A beautiful, frightening & unforgettable read. In 1915, a young American delivering aid to Armenian refugees befriends a survivor. Years later, their grandchild unravels their secret & the hopes that kept them going in the war. Traveling between Aleppo, Syria, in 1915 & Bronxville, New York, in 2012."
The Sandcastle Girls - Chris Bohjalian First book club read - 6/10 March 2014
The best day!
