Shadow of Night | Deborah Harkness. Book 2 of the All Souls Trilogy. If possible, Shadow of Night is even better than the first book, Discovery of Witches, especially if you are a fan of historical fiction. Harkness, an historian, has impeccably researched her subject and this book is entirely delightful. Very highly recommended! ~SN
Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy #2) I hope it's worth reading!

All Time Best Earth Day Books: The Lorax (Classic Seuss). First published in 1971, this eco-minded classic by Dr. Seuss is still a great read for Earth Day. When the greedy Once-ler cuts down the lovely Truffula Trees for the sake of manufacturing, the fuzzy yellow Lorax speaks up "for the trees have no tongues." The story reminds us all that Earth's beauty could be fleeting without our help. Read together or Grade 1+

Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling unveils the story behind the art's making, a story rife with all the drama of a modern-day soap opera. Only $3.97 from Thrift Books.
Worth Reading, Michelangelo, Ross King, Books Worth, Pope Ceilings, Art History, Julius Ii, Pope Julius, Sisten Chapel
Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling. I wish I had read this before I went to see the Sistene Chapel. It brought the whole story to life.
In 1508, despite strong advice to the contrary, the powerful Pope Julius II commissioned Michelangelo to paint the ceiling of the newly restored Sistine Chapel. With little experience as a painter (though famed for his sculpture David), Michelangelo was reluctant to begin the massive project. Great, in depth look at the personal life of an absolute genius!
Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling by Ross King. A fantastic book related to Architecture, Art, and History.
For the art history lovers: I never tire of this book. I can read it over and over again.

David Baldacci - One Summer #book #davidbaldacci #onesummer
If you know David Baldacci only as a thriller writer, you need to read more of David Baldacci. In One Summer, he writes as beautifully and insightfully about the pathways of the human heart as he does about the corridors of power. The twists and turns in this hugely emotional and unforgettable novel come from the resilience of one father's spirit and the revelation of the love that binds a family, in this world and even beyond. If you read one book this summer, make it One Summer."

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell, the author of Cloud Atlas. "Every page is overfull with language, events, and characters, exuberantly saturated in the details of the time and the place but told from a knowing and undeniably modern perspective. It's a story that seems to contain a thousand worlds in one."
Worth Reading, Jacobs De, De Zoet, Autumn, Books Club, Books Worth, David Mitchell, Novels, Cloud Atlas
David Mitchell is a masterful storyteller. I was captivated by Cloud Atlas and didn't think that he could top it. And then came along "The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet." It's not that "Thousand Autumns" is necessarily better (the two novels are so remarkably different that it's difficult to compare them) but it once again showcases the brilliance of Mitchell's writing and his ability to transport a reader to a different place and time so entirely and so beautifully.
