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.

 The Vampire Game trilogy
The Vampire Game trilogy
I was recently asked bởi a collegue what my yêu thích read of the năm was--I review a hell of a lot of new material every year. Matter-of-factly, I blurted out my answer without a một giây thought, "The Vampire Game bởi Les Bailey," I told him. "In fact, I loved the entire trilogy, It was extremely well written and the nghề viết văn pulled me into another world away from my own. And the way I see it, that's exactly what a good novel is supposed to do!" I told him.

When I first came across Bailey's novel, he was a first-time published author. New to the world of publishing, hoặc so I was told bởi his agent,...
