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 библиотека now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials by 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 by Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing Книги I have ever read. I tackled this one over a Рождество break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when Ты have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series by 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 Книги are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. Ты want to relax after all!

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

5. Watership Down by 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. Ты will Любовь this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

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

8. The Girl of the Limberlost by 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 Ты get into it.

9. Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant
If Ты 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 еще of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

10. The Last Wife of Henry VIII by Carolly Erickson
Another historical fiction. I learned a lot about English history and about Henry VIII and his many wives. The Книги 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 Ты have it. This is not a Список of my Избранное Книги (though many do fit into that category) but instead a true Список of Книги I think Ты will find very enjoyable over vacation. So challenge yourself and read as many as possible или even just one! Let me know what Ты think, I'd Любовь to hear comments.

If Ты remember, earlier this year, I reviewed a new book titled 'The Vampire Game: Discovery' written by hunky first-time Автор Les Bailey--which I absolutely adored! (I've read the book 3 times now!)

Well, I now get to Сообщить that there is a great possibility that the novel in Вопрос will be developed into a major movie!

According to several movie news outlets, the unique vampire tale has generated loads of interest among some of Hollywood's most influential filmmakers--and I can see why.

As I first reported back...

A good book on your shelf is a friend that turns its back on Ты and remains a friend. ~Author Unknown

A book is the only place in which Ты can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, или explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy. ~Edward P. Morgan

The worth of a book is to be measured by what Ты can carry away from it. ~James Bryce

Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book. ~Author Unknown

The Adoration of Jenna лиса, фокс is a tale about a teenage girl finding her identity. Even though it's a young adult book, I would reccomend it to anyone.
