A Wolf at the Table. NOT a funny read, but so interesting! A brave look back on a scary childhood that still haunts him. Helps to understand why he went to live with the family in Running With Scissors...it was LESS crazy in many ways.

VERY good book about a boy's relationship with his father. Couldn't put it down and years later still recommend it to anyone who likes non-fiction and psychology.

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls This is my favorite book! I've read it more times then I can count and I think my kids think they have read it too, as I'm always talking about it.
Recommended by Chris. The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls When I asked for reading suggestions at the end of my last book club chat, many of you said The Glass Castle. It’s the memoir of a girl growing up in a very eclectic and cash-strapped family.
"I just finished reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, it was on my son’s summer reading list and once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. It’s one of those books that changes you. He finally got it back from me and is reading it now." - Fiona Lennon, bookings editor
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls It’s the memoir of a girl growing up in a very eclectic and cash-strapped family. Such an amazing book!
My official To Be Read list has well over a hundred titles at any given time (Goodreads is both a blessing and a curse). I've had "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls on the list for over five years, and I never hear anything but praise. I think I'm slightly afraid that it won't live up to everyone's enthusiasm. - Sarah
I am not a fan of memoirs, biographies and most non-fiction. Jeannette's Walls books though, are the exception. Last year, I read her second book Half Broke Horses, a true-life novel about her grandmother. I honestly wasn't too excited to read it, and only picked it up because it was one of my book club picks. I spent an entire day in bed reading it because I couldn't put it down. So I was pretty excited to pick up The Glass Castle when I saw it at the library.
This is on my "to read" list... The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls - amazing book!
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls ~ excellent book. #books
A good friend recommended this book to me. I honestly think this is the best love story I have ever read. The love this father has for his son is so powerful, I wept throughout. Yes it is dark. But strangely beautiful.

The Road: Cormac McCarthy $11.99 (Kindle). Heart-rending story. Minimalistic writing. Unforgettable book.
The Road (Cormac McCarthy). This was just really good. Understated and straightforward but written with beautiful language and some heartfelt moments. A dad and young son "carry the fire" to the coast in a post apocalyptic cannibalistic world.
The Road - Cormac McCarthy This was so depressing but made me feel so appreciative of all our blessings
The Road (Cormac McCarthy). Apocalypse Fiction class - should be compelling. This is one I have read already.
The Road - Cormac McCarthy! I thought it was wonderful and was my favorite book I read in grade 12!

The 20 Most Iconic Book Covers Ever
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald, 1925. Francis Cugat, a relatively unknown artist at the time, was commissioned to design the cover of the novel while Fitzgerald was still working on it — when Fitzgerald saw the cover, finished before the novel, he liked it so well that he told his publisher that he had “written it into” the book. Hemingway, on the other hand, hated it.

I have cited Gatsby as my favorite book ever since I read it when I was fifteen, but now that I think about it there's a lot of self-indulgent narcissism in it. A good story of loss and love nevertheless.
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. Iconic book covers <3
