I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but in many countries, there is a big break coming up, and I thought I would share some good vacation-type reads. So put these on hold at the thư viện now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials bởi Philip Pullman
(The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)-I read this series once over a break and it is fantastic. Deep and meaningful while still a quick read. The 2nd one is my favorite.

2. Anna Karenina bởi Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing sách I have ever read. I tackled this one over a giáng sinh break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when bạn have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series bởi Christopher Paolini
(Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr) This is a good chance to catch up before the 4th book comes out. (Anyone know when that is, btw?) People may laugh at this pick, but the sách are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. bạn want to relax after all!

4. 1984 bởi George Orwell
If you've been putting it off, now's your chance to read this timeless classic!

5. Watership Down bởi Richard Adams
I know a book about rabbits on a quest sounds ridiculous but this book is completely wonderful. You'll get through it in no time.

6. Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales
This book looks intimidating, but each of the stories are very short and they are magical. bạn will tình yêu this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

7. Lord of the Rings bởi J.R.R. Tolkien
Now, I understand that this task is a little overwhelming, but at least try to finish one of these 3 sách over break. I promise it's still good even if bạn spread it out. Tackle one this break, another in the spring and the last one over the summer.

8. The Girl of the Limberlost bởi Gene Stratton Porter
I completely loved this book when I was 15. It's a beautiful story. It has little to do with vacation, but it's a thick book, though a quick read once bạn get into it.

9. Birth of Venus bởi Sarah Dunant
If bạn like historical fiction, this one was very surprising to me in a good way. I usually don't go straight for the bestsellers, I'm thêm of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

10. The Last Wife of Henry VIII bởi Carolly Erickson
Another historical fiction. I learned a lot about English history and about Henry VIII and his many wives. The sách starts when he's still married to his first wife. I read this book literally from cover to cover without setting it down. A great fast read.

So there bạn have it. This is not a danh sách of my yêu thích sách (though many do fit into that category) but instead a true danh sách of sách I think bạn will find very enjoyable over vacation. So challenge yourself and read as many as possible hoặc even just one! Let me know what bạn think, I'd tình yêu to hear comments.

Mmkay, this is a really powerful-but really long- quote and I really hope bạn take just a few phút out of whatever you're doing and read it.

"I was telling bạn about evil, now that I know what it is. It's what makes a man get drunk and press a red hot poker on his child's back. It's what makes men have to queue for hours at the dock gates for a chance of a job when there are only a dozen jobs for a hundred men, so they fight each other in order to get them, and the foreman laugh and egg them on. It's what takes an old couple who've got nothing left but each other and splits them up to go...

I explained in my trước đó linkthe meaning of the this phrase, but here is a quick recap: advance readers' copies are sent pre-published sách bởi publishers in hopes that a particularly enthusiastic recipient will personally promote the work to his hoặc her customers, and thus increase sales exponentially.

Titles mentioned in my first bài viết included:
- The Hunger Games bởi Suzanne Collins
- Half-Assed bởi Jeanette Fulda
- The Rhino with Glue-on Shoes bởi Lucy Spelman
- Cheer! bởi Kate Torgovnick

Here are thêm sách that I have read in galley form (another phrase for advance reader copy) and hope that...

In A Sunburned Country, A Walk in the Woods and I'm a Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After 20 Years Away bởi link
While I have only discovered Bill Bryson's works within the past year, I have whole-heartedly fallen in tình yêu with his writings. Why? Because they are the freaking funniest things I have ever read. He delights in depicting the strange and the awkward, which usually turns out to be him. This "God Dad! [teenage eyes rolling in disdain, can't believing that they are related]" theme runs throughout his books, adding *pop* and *crackle* to his extremely informative...

My Life in France bởi Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme
You must know Julia Child bởi name if not bởi reputation. The cook of all cooks. The woman who revolutionized American household kitchens; she entered the trang chủ bởi TV and left us groaning, having just gorged on prodigious French food. But that really isn't her, Julia Child declares, in her book. My Life in France is an amazing, humanizing potrait of Julia Child as we peek into her life before fame and (can bạn belive it?) her life before she could cook (she claims that she was horrible in the phòng bếp, nhà bếp before moving to France and attended cooking...
