The Book of Lost Things by John Connelly

JUST reread this amazing book. Meaning I finished it about 3 hours ago.... One of the most heart-wrenching and thought-provoking stories.

Penguin Classic's list of "100 Classic Books You Must Read Before You Die" I am proud to say I have read 94 of these!

“People without hope not only don't write novels, but what is more to the point, they don't read them.” ― Flannery O'Connor

This is a classic story of sisterly love, compassion and goodness. It was also one of the first novels that I read to myself as a little girl.

Banned Books: The Nazi's and the Catholic Church were and are not the only ones to ban books. Currently the State Board of Education bans several. Ray Bradbury's "Farhenheit 451" is a tale of a society banning books. It and the books on this list are all worth reading. The ability to publish them is freedom of speech.

Classic Books Everyone Should Read | In no particular order, some classic, and some modern)

MYSTERY, DETECTIVE, CRIME: The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Author Conan Doyle. This one is next!

“Prejudices, it is well known, are most difficult to eradicate from the heart whose soil has never been loosened or fertilised by education: they grow there, firm as weeds among stones.” ― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Best classic ever. I had to read one for school and I picked this and it doesn't even seem like a typical classic book when you're reading it because its actually exciting haha

Persuasion (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics) by Jane Austen $16.85

One of the astoundingly good books. I've read it at least 3 times and I've never made it through without crying.

Pride and Prejudice

One of my childhood FAVORITES!!!!
