    The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas is a 2006 novel from the point of view of a naïve young boy, written by Irish novelist John Boyne. Unlike the months of planning Boyne devoted to his other books, he said that he wrote the entire first draft of The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas in two and a half days, barely sleeping until he got to the end. To date, the novel has sold more than 5 million copies around the world, and was published as The Boy in the Striped Pajamas in the United States to go along with the traditional American spelling of the word. In both 2007 and 2008 it was the best selling book of the year in Spain. It has also reached number 1 on the New York Times bestseller list, as well as in the UK, Ireland, Australia and many other countries.

This is brilliant. Books make you THINK So for this nerdy after school club I'm in, you have to give a 2 minute oral speech about a topic you feel strongly about. My speech is about why books are better than movies. BAM.

The Outlander Series. Love these books. If you're into recorded books that's the best way to enjoy Outlander. Davina Porter is a great narrator.

Believe it or not I hadn't read this book until last year...and then I listened to it. Fantastic!

Thanks to Mom for my love of reading and my first reading list!

If Holden Caulfield was alive today, “The Catcher in the Rye” would’ve taken the form of a long and angsty Tumblr page. I’d write a longer commentary on this idea, but I just spent way too long photoshopping that book cover.
