Cormac McCarthy's "The Road".  A much-better-than-average post-apocalypic tale.  Should read even if you saw the movie.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER PULITZER PRIZE WINNER "The searing, postapocalyptic novel destined to become Cormac McCarthy's masterpiece. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind.

One of the most influential books written. Magnificent.

"On the Road," Jack Kerouac. Probably the most influential book I've read. I got to see the original scroll Kerouac wrote this one in Denver about five years ago, it was fascinating.

Their fates were linked by the magical Chicago World’s Fair of 1893, nicknamed the “White City” for its majestic beauty. Architect Daniel Burnham built it; serial killer Dr. H. H. Holmes used it to lure victims to his World’s Fair Hotel, designed for murder. Both men left behind them a powerful legacy, one of brilliance and energy, the other of sorrow and darkness.

The Devil In The White City by Erik Larson-Historical fiction set at the Chicago World's Fair. Learned alot about architecture and Chicago World's Fair . Also a crime novel about the first Chicago serial killer.

Book Review: All the Pretty Horses

journey, love, growth, all while picturing Jude Law as Inman (sorry but I'm being honest)

Cold Mountain - 1997 historical U. Civil War novel by Charles Frazier which won the U. National Book Award for Fiction. Superb book and movie.

Rabbit Run by John Updike - Not a favorite of mine, as it was very depressing.  I admit I am biased toward happy endings.

The first novel in Updike's "Rabbit" series--the beauty of the novel is that none of the characters are sympathetic or likable, but the reader still can't help but turn the pages.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. An enthralling family saga of Africa and America, doctors and patients, exile and home.

I read this book, and I fell in love with it! It's got characters that are easy to relate to, and it's just a really interesting story. I highly recommend it to anyone who's in the mood for a good book.
