Good Books

I just finished Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five (I loved it) and have suddenly been overwhelmed by the desire to read more great books. So, if you would be so kind, I would appreciate it if you would leave me the title of one of your favorite books (preferebly a classic but anything is ok). Thanks!

    My favorite classic was, without question, Les Miserables. I read the unabridged version… it has more pages than the bible and it took me a year to finally finish it (I went through on a have-time basis), but it was worth the effort. Victor Hugo is a genius by anyone’s standard. I even found his rambling tangents about the French Revolution to be interesting.

    Thanks! I love the musical but have not had the courage to take up the book. But I think I’ll add it to my list now.

    I think ‘1491’ is worth reading. It answers questions for me about the earlier peoples of the western hemisphere which is a much different picture than anything we were taught is high school. It both supports the B of M but also debunks some of the mythology that has grown up around it.

    Richard Bushman’s diary of his experiences with the writing of RSR is out and I will be picking up copies today.

    Great! I’ve been looking foward to that one.

    I highly recommend “Refuge” by Terry Tempest Williams (nonfiction). And “Something Wicked This Way Comes” by Ray Bradbury (best read in October). And “Housekeeping” and / or “Gilead” by Marilynne Robinson.

    I just checked out “Gilead”. They didn’t have “Refuge” (I had heard of that one before, is the author from Utah?). Currently I’m reading “Brave New World,” and loving it. And I love the library. FREE BOOKS! They just let you take them, and then you can trade them a month later for other FREE BOOKS! I love it.
