The Professor's House by Willa Cather. I've been on a Willa Cather streak the last few months, mainly due to the descriptions she gives to the Southwest. Because of that, the best part of the book is Tom Outland's story. Overall, though, not one of my favorites of hers, though still pretty good.

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. so worth reading, very historically accurate, i learned a great deal about the war but most importantly how humans can be so cruel to one another yet the spirit of those tortured could endure so much more than one can imagine.

Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. One of the best books I've read. This book is about an Olympian who gets drafted to the WWII in the Pacific and his amazing story from childhood, to crashing into the Pacific Ocean, floating for 46 days, captured by the Japanese, and his resilience as a POW. Must read, even if you don't typically read war or history books. #biography #laurahillenbrand #WWII

The Book Thief is the story of Liesel Meminger. Liesel is almost ten when she ends up in Molching with Hans and Rosa Hubermann, her new foster parents. It is 1939. In Nazi Germany. Through their eyes we see Hitler and Nazi Germany; we experience the atrocities and the small kindnesses. Zusak’s story is mostly about everyday things: hunger, pettiness, laughter, hope, cruelty and kindness. Loved it.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. This is a story about a girl in WWII Germany who steals books before they can be burned and shares them with her neighbors and a Jewish man who is hidden in her basement. The story is narrated by Death and is appropriately dark, but manages to be uplifting at the same time. So far, my favorite book read in our book club....
Steppenwolf for Young Adults presents its stage adaptation of "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak. Chicago, IL. October 16, 2012 to November 11, 2012.
Set during WWII in Germany about a little girl named Liesel. Clever and beautifully written. This is a book worth reading.
The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak (Book Club Kit). It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery.

The Host by Stephanie Meyer. I read this book two summers ago. I liked it. It's written in a different style then the Twilight saga and has a different sci fi outlook. Movie is slated for 2013.
This one I liked a lot, both movie and book, but never could get into the Twilight movies (the vampires I believe in do not sparkle!) I just bought the first two Twilight books, lets see if they surpass the movies. "Book Review: The Host by Stephenie Meyer + BB&R Playlist!

Snobs by Julian Fellowes When the gap between Downton Abbey episodes becomes too great, it's nice to know that Julian Fellowes also writes books. This is his first novel, and it's a captivating, and sometimes humorous, story about the lives of the British aristocracy, though he himself describes it more as a story about life choices. Either way, it's a terrific read.

Snobs: A Novel of Modern Manners from Downton Abbey author Julian Fellowes (who establishes himself here as an irresistible storyteller and a deliciously witty chronicler of modern manners).
Snobs by Julian Fellowes | The best comedies of manners are often deceptively simple, seamlessly blending social critique with character and story. In his superbly observed first novel, Julian Fellowes, creator of Downton Abbey and winner of an Academy Award for his original screenplay of Gosford Park, brings us an insider’s look at a contemporary England that is still not as classless as is popularly supposed.

All Creatures Great and Small: James Herriot: One of the best books of all times. If you love Animals, then this is the book that will steal your heart.
All Creatures Great and Small: This was one of my favorite books growing up. It made we want to be a vet
All Creatures Great and Small (and everything else by James Herriot) - I, and so many others, love these for the warmth with which he paints characters (human and animal) and for the way he conjures up a lost time that seems more innocent and authentic than our time
All Creatures Great and Small - "A very funny and super heartwarming book! You really fall in love with the people and the animals. This is a memoir of James Herriot and follows him as a country vet. If you want a great, heartfelt read, this is the one for you!" M.D. of Shoes Central
James Herriot, the famous Vet, wrote some fine books about his experiences dealing with animals. Here's book review of All Creatures Great and Small.
All Creatures Great and Small: James Herriot:For over 25 years-- since All Creatures Great and Small was first published-- readers have delighted to the storytelling genius of James Herriot, the Yorkshire veterinarian whose fascinating vignettes brim with the wonder of life, animal and human.

All Creatures Great and Small by James Herriot. The series is fantastic for anyone who loves animals and enjoys humor! The BBC created a show from these stories. Someday I hope to visit the Yorkshire moors where the real James Herriot (Alfred Wight) was a practicing vet!
