The Great Gatsby
Fitzgerald, High School, Dust Jacket, Favorite Book, Dust Cover, Time Favorite
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. A book I am so glad I was forced to read in high school...continues to be an all-time favorite.
This has been my favorite book ever since I was in high school and mesmerized by Fitzgerald's fascinating use of symbolism. Every summer I try to re-read my same copy from high school, using a different color pen each time so I can visually see how the story transforms as I get older.
One of my favorite books of all time. It helps that my beautiful city, Louisville, was an inspiration for Fitzgerald. I am impatiently waiting for the Baz Luhrman directed film to debut featuring the one and only Leonardo DiCaprio this summer.
The Great Gatsby by F Scott Fitzgerald. Hands down my all time favorite book by my all time favorite author
All Time favorite book! First published in 1925, a novel by the American author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald. Undeniably one of the greatest book jackets of all time.
Read this is high school and hated it. Re-read it at 36 and fell in love with Fitzgerald.
One of my all-time favorite book covers (but not so much the words inside)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1925. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind, top edge trimmed others uncut. With the dust jacket. Housed in a dark green quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Foxing to page edges and the first and last gatherings, mild browning to the endpapers but an especially bright copy, tight and square in the slightly chipped dust jacket with a little professional repair. The folds have been internally strengthened and several tears repaired with retouching to the creases and rubbing. A very attractive copy, the brightness of the blue is especially good. First edition, first printing, first state of the text, first issue dust jacket. The copy is the correct first printing.
I LOVE this book!

Tyler Durden, Books Movie, Chuck Palahniuk, Reading List, Fight Club, Favorite Books, Books Book, Club Book
FIGHT CLUB – CHUCK PALAHNIUK (1996) Fiercely masculine and fiercely anti-corporate, Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club is that rare novel that only emerges a handful of times in a generation. The nameless narrator shifts from being a sleeping consumer to becoming embroiled in the creation of an underground fighting club with the charismatic Tyler Durden. The clubs expand into cells across the nation, becoming radical. Couldn’t be more cool, basically.
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. One of my favorite books and hands down my favorite of CP's.

Fight Club / Chuck Palahniuk ~ Chuck Palahniuk's outrageous and startling debut novel that exploded American literature and spawned a movement. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with white-collar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything.

Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.
Loved this book! Movie was good, but as usual book is way better.
Fight Club -Chuck Palahniuk- on my "To Read" list
Fight Club (Book) : Palahniuk, Chuck : Overview: The first rule about fight club is you don't talk about fight club. Chuck Palahniuk's outrageous and startling debut novel that exploded American literature and spawned a movement. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots of bars across the country, young men with white-collar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded just as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter, and dark, anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.
"This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time." Fight Club- Chuck Palahniuk (1996) Synopsis: This book asks the question- what is the meaning in life? Only, it doesn’t give the answers in a pretty package wrapped in a bow. Example: “You are not a beautiful and unique snowflake. You are the same decaying organic matter as everyone else, and we are all part of the same compost pile.” The unnamed narrator is an average, working class guy just going through the motions of life. He is unhappy and tired of trying to be something he is not- something society has labeled as acceptable (making a humorous reference to the Ikea catalog). His path intersects with Tyler’s, a man that seems to have all the answers. Together, they pull pranks, conduct experiments, and start a Fight Club- focusing on the living of life and not what society teaches them to focus on: jobs, possessions, and relationships. The Fight Club was built upon the notion that feeling pain is better than feeling nothing, but it turns into quite a complicated social experiment. Review: AWESOME book. Books like this one are truly eye-opening. I felt like parts of my brain that had been unused were suddenly working overtime. There were several situations that disturbed me, and many ideas presented that actually upset me. However, to me, (and maybe this seems backwards to some) that was a better reason to read it than any other. I am pretty critical of an author’s ability to WRITE (not come up with a great story, but actually write it) and Palahniuk is an excellent writer. I read this novel with the same can’t-look-away reaction I have when driving past a car accident. I was left pondering over it for days, even weeks, after I finished it. I do recommend this book to fellow readers, but consider yourself warned about the nature of the content. What about you? Have you read other novels by Palahniuk? How does this compare? Have you seen the movie and how do you feel it compares to the novel? What is it about the content of this book that either pulls you in or repels you?

Life of Pi Yann Martel. A worthy, well-written, creative novel, which was almost universally despised by every member of my book club. Discussion was brief because most did not buy into the fantastical tale.
Life of Pi / Yann Martel ~ Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.

1925 Book Jacket
Some of those books they have us read in high school are just plain mean, others we tend to overlook. Here are a few required readings that aren't completely a snoozer. Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger - A lot of my older friends say they liked this book when they were kids, and hated it as an adult. I will admit there isn't too much action, but Holden Caulfield (the main character) is pretty interesting. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald - This was the most popular book my class read in high school. The newest movie probably had a lot to do with that, but regardless the book is just a gorgeous as the film. I love the descriptive language and the crazy parties in this one. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - This is my all time favorite fiction book. We didn't get to read it at my high school, but a lot of schools get to. It's set in Germany during World War Two but I would not call it a war nove. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbra Kingsolver - I havent gotten the chance to read this one myself yet but one of my closest friends recommended it to me from her AP English class. I'll have to put this one on my summer reading list.

Books Movies, To Kill A Mockingbird, Books I Ve, Books Books, Harper Lee, Favorite Books, High Schools
Harper Lees To Kill A Mockingbird is timeless! A must read for those who haven't yet . . My favorite book in high school I stole the book and just bought a new one last year for the anniversary of it's being published.
One of my all-time favorite books. I have read this book more than any other - I don't even know how many times I've read it - because it is such a great book and so short. I am sure I'll read it again someday. I love the way Harper Lee wrote, and the era, characters, and story are terrific. Atticus Finch is one of my favorite literary characters.
To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee - I don't care that you read it in middle school AND high school, just reread it, you won't be sorry
To Kill A Mockingbird--This book, penned by Harper Lee, was an eye opener for me when I was in high school. It helped me to REALLY understand what bigotry, at its worst in humanity, was capable of. It is also a book that shows the best of humanity in overcoming our differences and prejudices. If you've never read this book, check it out. It is an amazing book.

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins is was an excellent surprise. They're young adult books, but they bring up some incredibly adult questions about war and survival instincts and the costs of winning. These stuck with me. And I admit - I'm excited for the first movie to come out! Because the books are so action and dialogue focused, hopefully the movie won't lose much in translation.
Hunger Games trilogy I know it is suppose to be for young adults, but I have to say it is well done.
The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins **** A young-adult dystopian adventure series where The Capitol rules over each District under the strict demands of an overly indulgent upper class and a totalitarian President Snow.

One of the great classics of twentieth-century literature, The Great Gatsby stands as the supreme achievement of F. Scott Fitzgerald's career. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Read it for school earlier this year, and it's one of my favorite books of all time. Plus, the movie looks like it should be great.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written.
The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written. Considered Fitzgerald's best work, The Great Gatsby is a mystical, timeless story of integrity and cruelty, vision and despair.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age.
Want to read / book I should have read in high school: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
One of my all time favorite books.
School's almost back in session — have you finished your Summer reading? We may no longer have the pressure of a required reading list to motivate us to dive into the classics, but without the stress of potential pop quizzes or book reports
I stumbled upon a book-related blog hop yesterday... ...and naturally, I have opinions about books. Two of the bloggers read classics. Abbey at Finding My Forever read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I like this book, but it's not one of my all-time favorites. What's your opinion of Gatsby - love it or hate it? Will you see the new movie, with Leo DiCaprio, when it comes out? I'm sure I will, eventually. I love Leo, but it's going to be awfully hard for him to out-Gatsby Robert Redford. Belle at The Life and Times of Belle tackled Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. GWTW is an intimidatingly large book, which I'm sure turns some people off from reading it. It's also problematic because of the characters' racism, which is nauseating (but true to the time period in which the story takes place). Still, I contend this book is very definitely worth reading. It's a great story. Love it or hate it? You should also, definitely, watch the movie, even though (like From Here to Eternity) it leaves out quite a bit of plot and characters. If you've only ever seen the movie, you don't know that Charles and Scarlett had a son. Clark Gable aside: I happened to watch Public Enemies yesterday (because Christian Bale), and this time I noted a) that I don't like it when Christian Bale shoots Channing Tatum - I don't care if he is Pretty Boy Floyd; b) Emilie de Ravin of Lost and Remember Me has a small role; and c) the movie which John Dillinger is leaving when killed is Manhattan Melodrama, starring Clark Gable and Myrna Loy. You'll get to see a few moments of it - along with Johnny Depp reacting to the gangster story - as you watch Public Enemies. I'm pro-Gatsby and pro-GWTW, but I can't quite decide whether or not to like the music of Azealia Banks. "Liquorice" gets stuck in my head, but I'm not sure whether to applaud the bold sexuality in it or frown on the artist for (in this song) aspiring to be nothing more than a male fantasy - or both. On the one hand, the word-picture she's painting is like that of the women Amy Winehouse mocks in "Fuck Me Pumps." On the other hand, who am I to judge? as argued by Salt N Pepa in "None of Your Business." Adults are free to make their own sexual choices among other consenting adults. Plus, you can dance to "Liquorice." Azealia Banks - love her music or hate her music?
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Of Mice And Men, Books Movies, John Steinbeck, High School, Books I Ve, Books Books, Favorite Books
Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck is a brilliant novella of two migrant workers in California during the Great Depression. Their unlikely friendship, which began by chance and was sustained by mutual hope, was ultimately tested by unthinkable tragedy. (If you had to read it in high school, read it again from an adult perspective! It's such a good read!)
Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck 1937 – Lenny is the main character of this novel and has a mental disability. This is a very iconic book that paints lenny as short of a bad guy with good intentions. I think if we stray away from this notation of people with disabilities we will be able to grow as a community, but I still love this book
Of Mice and Men | John Steinbeck 1937- SADDEST BOOK YOU WILL EVER READ. but amazing work of literature

Of Mice and Men book cover
Image from Wikimedia Commons George and Lennie are drifters in the world, bouncing from site to site and seeking a place to call their own. So they form a plan, a plan to gather up enough money to build their own little paradise. But as they soon come to know, "the best-laid schemes of mice and men often go awry". --Of Mice and Men, by John Steinbeck I respect books. Books contain whole worlds in them, the lives of whole crowds of characters. Respect the books, I say, because they're the container that holds the minds of their authors. And then I read Of Mice and Men. And stifled the urge to fling it across the room. This is one of the most infuriating books I have ever read, and it's only a hundred-or-so pages long. Now, to pack that much emotion into such little space is a feat, which is probably why John Steinbeck's writing is so renowned, but it isn't without problems. It uses racist language and slings random vulgarities around without remorse. Innocent puppies and mice are killed. It gets almost preachy at times, giving the reader the mental image of Steinbeck standing on a soapbox and hollering through a bullhorn. Then there is, of course, the small problem of how strong it is. Problem? you ask. Yes, a huge blockade of a problem. Much like Lennie in the story, the book is almost unknowingly powerful. Withing five pages, you find yourself rooting for and sympathizing with simple-minded Lennie and clever George, even without knowing their backstory or knowing much about how they got to the point where they were trekking miles to find a ranch to work at. Of Mice and Men is like a Greek tragedy in every way (barring the minor alteration of it being an American novel), from the three-act structure it's set up in to the sudden, almost startling ending of the story. It isn't as though the ending was unexpected, for it wasn't, since from the very beginning you sense that something isn't quite right but you stifle to feeling just to carry on optimistically wishing the characters success. Nay, the ending is startling because the sheer emotion hits you with all the subtlety of a bulldozer. And then it hits you, the reader, that you should have seen this coming. Of Mice and Men is a great novel. Perhaps not superb, or anything, but it's incredibly styled and it carries a weighty message with a realistic theme. Maybe real life doesn't have any such thing as foreshadowing, maybe if the story were set in modern times Lennie would have been locked up for animal abuse, but it is realistic in at least one respect: It tells you that there's no such thing as a happy ending. --Aishwarya Jayadeep

catcher in the #cover book #book cover #book covering #3d book cover| http://coverbookrachelle.blogspot.com
Since his debut in 1951 as The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield has been synonymous with "cynical adolescent." Holden narrates the story of a couple of days in his sixteen-year-old life, just after he's been expelled from prep school, in a slang that sounds edgy even today and keeps this novel on banned book lists.
Lol, Holden Caulfield. :D The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger | 13 Of Your Favorite Books If Their Titles Were Honest
J.D. Salinger: The Catcher in the Rye book cover THE CATCHER IN THE RYE is an ancient child of sixteen, a native New Yorker named Holden Caulfield. Through circumstances that tend to preclude adult, secondhand description, he leaves his prep school in Pennsylvania and goes underground in New York City for three days.
I've never understood parents wanting to ban this book from high school libraries and literature reading lists. Whenever I've asked many of them if they're read it, they say no, "but I've heard a lot of negative things." The story of a troubled teenager, Holden Caulfield, "The Catcher in the Rye" is on my list of books I read every few years. Like many fans of Salinger, I try and keep the popularity fires burning!
For more than fifty years, Catcher, easily the most banned book of the twentieth century American canon, the favorite target of conservative school systems, earnest parents groups, and strident church organizations, has thrived on its reputation as an underground text, passed among ardent readers with cult-like fanaticism, hard core fans who have found in the lonely misfit Holden Caulfield a companion, a friend for life.
