Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, nicknamed the “White City” for its majestic beauty. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder. Both men left behind them a powerful legacy, one of brilliance and energy, the other of sorrow and darkness.

book bucket list. Interesting list, some of these have been on my reading list for a while. I have read only 7 so far, but seen a lot of the movies :)
I'm always searching for new books with great messages and meaning. Now I have over a thousand! Book bucket list.
Book bucket list. For book club ideas.....
Book bucket list. I'm curious to see what others see are the 1001 books that we "must read" before we die.
am I the only one who hated "Never Let Me Go"? I just don't get it. and who the heck has time to read books from the 1700s?? -- Book bucket list.
book bucket list. Challenge accepted
Now this makes sense! A "must read" list of only 100, 200 or 300 books just won't cut it. Even this list of 1001 is somewhat limited. Everyone will find some favourites missing even here!..... kp. 1001 books to read before you die. Also has a good children's book list.

Worth Reading, Oprah Winfrey, Books Worth, Vinegar Hill, Manett Ansay, Awards Win Author, Families, Bookclub, Oprah Books Club
***½ Vinegar Hill In a stark, troubling, yet ultimately triumphant celebration of self-determination, award-winning author A. Manette Ansay re-creates a stifling world of guilt and pain, and the tormented souls who inhabit it. It is 1972 when circumstance carries Ellen Grier and her family back to Holly's Field, Wisconsin. Dutifully accompanying her newly unemployed husband, Ellen has brought her two children into the home of her in-laws on Vinegar Hill--a loveless house…
It was a book club choice from Oprah Winfrey and was indeed an excellent book. Well written.
Vinegar Hill by A. Mannette Ansay. Book has no plot. Its basically a family complaining about their lives and talking nonsense. NOT worth reading

Book Review: THE HAUNTING OF MADDY CLARE by Simone St. James
Deliciously creepy Gothic ghost story. In 1920′s England, shy, lonely Sarah is assigned by a temp agency to be assistant to a ghost hunter. When they investigate the angry and violent ghost of a dead servant named Maddy Clare, they get more than they bargained for.
This was a good book about a great ghost story, worth reading!
#41 The Haunting of Maddy Clare by Simone St. James -- Sarah Piper is hired by a ghost hunter to help with the lingering spirit of a servant girl in 1922 England.
The Kitchen House. JDR Note: OMG, I loved this book so much! A white indentured servant girl goes to live and work with the slaves on a Virginia plantation. The book follows the events of the next 19 years. It is tragic and parts of it will turn your stomach but there are equally uplifting doses of dignity, loyalty, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. so worth reading, very historically accurate, i learned a great deal about the war but most importantly how humans can be so cruel to one another yet the spirit of those tortured could endure so much more than one can imagine.
One of my best reads of 2011. Book Review: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption By Laura Hillenbrand, author of Seabiscuit True story, inspirational, moving, powerful. Real history, real humanity and the real power of God. A story so packed I could not predict what was coming next. A truly inspirational life story.
Great fantasy novels.
