Good book list for adults & older teens - 26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School
26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School. A few of these actually were taught at my high school.
26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School. Some of these I would leave off (Water for Elephants - why?). And I've seen many of these on reading lists already, including The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which is not on this list.
26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School. I haven't read them all but there are some great selections here.
So I'm still fully supportive of the 19th and 20th century curriculum, but these are definitely books that high schoolers should read on their own :) 26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School
26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School: Great list of books overall! I've read about 8 of these entries
Not all of these books would have been wise choices for me as a high school teacher to require all students read them. However, they make excellent choices for me, as well as anyone who would like to read something "interesting for a change." 26 Contemporary Books That Should Be Taught In High School

The Diving Bell and the Butterfly | 32 Books That Will Actually Change Your Life - Happy that a book that was written in French makes it to a US list and #1. This book is universal anyway and I put it #1 on this list too. I think with admiration of Jean-Dominique Bauby who was Editor in Chief of Elle Paris and wrote the book by winking one eye. He passed away but he gave us a marvelous testimony on love and life. Now I can't wait to (re)read all the other books on this #Buzzfeed list #wow #books

A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki Book Club Discussion Guide from BookMovement --Book Clubs, Book Reviews, Discussion Questions, Book ...

"She'd written, 'Up, down, same thing.' And then later when they were at the beach, Jiko said those exact same words … 'up, down, same thing.' I had that dream over a week before I read about the beach, so how did I know that?" -- from "A Tale For The Time Being: a novel" by Ruth Ozeki (p. 230)
A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki This gorgeous and intricate novel tells the story of a novelist living in the Pacific Northwest who discovers a teenaged Japanese girl's diary that has washed ashore. The story moves back and forth between the two narratives, and it's easy to imagine a small-screen adaptation that slowly unravels the mystery of the girl who penned the diary.
A brilliant, unforgettable, and long-awaited novel from bestselling author Ruth Ozeki. Full of Ozeki’s signature humor and deeply engaged with the relationship between writer and reader, past and present, fact and fiction, quantum physics, history, and myth, A Tale for the Time Being is a brilliantly inventive, beguiling story of our shared humanity and the search for home.
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. A brilliant, unforgettable, and long-awaited novel from bestselling author Ozeki. In Tokyo, 16-year-old Nao has decided there's only one escape from her aching loneliness and her classmates' bullying. But before she ends it all, Nao first plans to document the life of her great-grandmother, a Buddhist nun who's lived more than a century.
(Lauren) A Tale for the Time Being / Ruth Ozeki / Just finished this fantastic novel. Highly recommend to any fan of Murakami, philosophy, botanists, or amateur sleuths.
Book #40 was A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki. This is a philosophical novel, a coming-of-age novel, a mystery novel sprinkled with a dash of magic realism. It’s about a japanese girl and a woman in British Columbia who is drawn into the story after discovering the girl’s diary. This book covers so much ground, but never loses its focus. It covers bullying, child prostitution, depression, suicide, and more. The story manages to be heart breaking and optimistic at the same time. Read it!
50 Books by Women Authors. Definitely need to add some of these to my reading list!

What a library can mean to you, E.B. White- very nice read however, I would disagree with the bit about you and the author being alone together. For me, it is more the author sharing with you a world and a peoples that you wouldn't otherwise know. Even though it may be the author bringing them to life there are so many more people involved than just the two of you.

Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people---people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book. E B White
A long quote, but I think we could manage it! It fits so well!!

The Smithsonian Libraries' Adopt-a-Book Program was established to acquire and preserve rare books and manuscripts for the world's largest museum complex and research organization.
