The Sirens of Titan (PS3572.O5 S5 1974)
Worth Reading, Sirens, Titanic, Book Worth, Science Fiction, Book Covers, Favorite Book, Novels, Kurt Vonnegut
Not normally a science fiction reader, but this novel was a hit for me. Of course Vonnegut is the author of Slaughterhouse Five, so it should not be surprising that he wrote other culturally controversial novels that get the wheels spinning in your head. I would not suggest this book, however, if you want to just dive in and be captivated within the first chapter. Patience and "hmm" moments are a definite must to enjoy this novel.

In Ch. 7, Bezos is quoted as saying, "If you believe the world can change, then it's not a stretch to believe you can be a part of it" (Dyer, Gregersen, & Christensen, 2011, p.166). I believe Bezos has a similar mind as Jay Gatsby in the famous novel The Great Gatsby, as Gatsby believed in change and particularly in humans being a part of their own change.

Book club in a bag : The great Gatsby / F. Scott Fitzgerald [kit]
The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, read in June 2012. I wouldn't classify this as a favorite book, but more as a book that fascinated me.

Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (PS3527.A15 L6 1997)
Got exactly this one. The cover is soft. But it's a masterpiece. Classic book by Nabokov and the great movie too. The language is very sophisticated and poetic. I've read it on Russian and English.
