William Faulkner- The Sound & the Fury. Wasn't my favorite Faulkner book but definitely an interesting writing style. Have to pay attention to keep up!
This book was difficult reading at first, requiring a lot of concentration. About half way through it really picked up for me, I am glad I read it.
Here's another suggestion on a great book to read from our AP Reading List Book-A-Day.
On reading list: The Sound and the Fury by William Faulkner. Challenge accepted!

Roots by Alex Haley. The novel that all African-Americans should read as children. It defined my sense of identity at a time when I needed it most. #africanamericanfiction #historicalfiction
Roots by Alex Haley Haley has done more than recapture the history of his own family. As the first black American writer to trace his origins back to their roots, he has told the story of 25,000,000 Americans of African descent. He has rediscovered for an entire people a rich cultural heritage that slavery took away from them, along with their names and their identities. (Dell)
Roots: The Saga of an American Family, Alex Haley's grandmother used to tell him stories about their family—stories that went back to her grandparents, their grandparents, down through the generations all the way to a man she called "the African." She said he had lived across the ocean near what he called the "Kamby Bolongo" & had been out in the forest one day chopping wood to make a drum when he was set upon by four men, beaten, chained & dragged aboard a slave ship bound for Colonial Amer...

Very funny memoir. I have a very similar sense of humor to Jeanne Darst so I thoroughly enjoyed it. Especially liked that she stopped drinking but didn't make a big deal about it.
Fiction Ruined My Family by Jeanne Darst. I laughed out loud on almost every page. One of the funniest books I've ever read! My favorite chapter was, "Crabs and Rehab."
This book cover is awesome. And Ira Glass says it's really funny, so...
Scale: Nice use of perspective to show a book cover, on a book cover.

Little, Big by John Crowley: A family saga anchored on the edge of a forest that's more than it seems. A unique take on magical realism. The first half was super hard for me—the prose is beautiful, but also so calming I had trouble reading more than 20 pages a night. The last half, though, is truly lovely. One of those books that makes you feel really small and really huge in the universe, all at once.

Like Moby Dick this is a fantasy novel that begs to be read over & over. I finally found it in hardback from one of the book clubs & I had to have it. However, the paperback reads just as nicely & doesn't hit the cat as hard when you drop to sleep & drop the book. Anyway, a work of genius!

I'm a huge LeCarre' fan and have read most of his novels. He's an absolute master at character development, to the extent that I invariably almost bail on his books because it takes so long for the real action to take place. All are great, though, and his most recent ones are a actually a little easier to understand since they're not quite as full of old-style Brit euphemisms, etc.
The Spy Who Came In From The Cold. No one writes a spy novel like this guy. No one even comes close. Not pinning them all... but I kinda want too!
The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, by John LeCarr� The best spy novel of all time.

ENTJ = "The Executive" = Traits: Driven, confident, efficient, goal-oriented ~~~ Book: Myers-Briggs describes ENTJs as "forceful in presenting their ideas." They're also likely to value efficiency to, say, more merciful or humanistic alternatives (hello, Inspector Javert!). Ayn Rand's powerful prose comes to mind; Even those who don't agree with her politically are likely to enjoy her writing style.
'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand (first published: 1957): The decisions of a few industrial leaders shake the roots of capitalism and reawaken man's awareness of himself as an heroic being. (Featured: Season One, Episode 8, "The Hobo Code")

The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books.
By Marcus Zusak. It's an amzing novel that follows a girl in Nazi Germany from Death's point of view. It's clever and well written and tear inducing at points. It gives an interesting insight into Nazi Germany and is compelling to read. The kiss. . . So sad.

Carson McCullers - The Heart is a Lonely Hunter | This is one of my top five favorite books.
The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter By Carson McCullers One of the most amazing books I ever read was The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. I wonder how much a non-southern person can appreciate some of the nuances that I consider very specific to that part of the country. In the subtlest, most unconscious ways, I'm able to get her description of, I don't know, humidity in a way that somebody who lives near the Great Lakes will never really know.
