Not the typical dog book.
possibly my favorite book of all time! narrated by 5-year-old jack, this haunting story of what a mother will do to protect her child in even the most unbearable circumstances is heartbreaking, frightening, and in the end, utterly uplifting. i've practically made this required reading for all my friends!
This one still haunts me.

little boy and his mother are held captive in a room and this book is from the 5 year olds point of view.
heartbreaking. narrated by a five year old boy who was raised in one room since the time he was born. his mother was kidnapped before he was born.
I didn't think I could read this book...but it was really good! Shows the power of a mother's love.
narrated by 5-year-old jack, this haunting story of what a mother will do to protect her child in even the most unbearable circumstances is heartbreaking, frightening, and in the end, utterly uplifting.
Amazing book. In the perspective of a 5 year old who has grown up in captivity with his sex slave mother. Brilliant use of perspective, and out author Emma Donaghue writes the voice of 5 year old Jack very believably
Room deals with the life a boy and his mother who are being held prisoners in this room for years, their escape and dealing with the world afterwards.

Some writing books you should just have. This is one. I heard AL speak and she said (and I try) "waste more paper and waste more time" because you can't be a writer without doing both.

Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott -- My absolute favorite book on writing (and more)
One of the best books on writing I've ever read. I go back to it again and again. Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life: Anne Lamott:
Amy Pohler recommended reading Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott available on Amazon for $9.58
We recommend all students looking to become better writers read Shitty First Drafts from Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird.
Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life: Anne Lamott: 9780385480017: Amazon.com: Books. I enjoyed reading this book when I was writing. She helped bring the reality of the writing world and what it takes to be a writer: writing every day!
Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott. This may be the most linked-to and recommended writing book of our time, but that doesn't change the fact that it's in the take-to-a-desert-island category. Funny, irreverent, at times just weird and quirky, this is what real writing is like. Extremely effective strategies for getting started and keeping going and just a damned fine read. Highly recommended.
SUCH a great book for aspiring writers. bird by bird -Ann Lamott
“She had learned, in her life, that time lived inside you. You are time, you breathe time... Now she held inside her a cacophony of times and lately it drowned out the world...she picked her way along the path, making way for the boy inside to run along before her. It could be hard to choose the time outside over the time within.”
Enjoyable read. For those who read the last chapter first - DO NOT do that with this book!!

This is beautiful, and true for me as well :) Reading is an escape from reality, a place to hide and find comfort. Its special, every time is different. Even if you read the same thing you did last week, your situation has changed and you are a different person. Reading inhabits the soul and I have found nothing that pleases me as much as picking up a book and loosing myself inside of it.
