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

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

3. Inheritance series سے طرف کی 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 کتابیں are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. آپ want to relax after all!

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

5. Watership Down سے طرف کی 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. آپ will love this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

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

8. The Girl of the Limberlost سے طرف کی 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 آپ get into it.

9. Birth of Venus سے طرف کی Sarah Dunant
If آپ 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 مزید of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

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

The amazing twilogy سے طرف کی Suzanne Collins is being made into a movie, and many people believe it will be bigger and better than Twilight.

Watch it and تبصرہ if آپ like it یا not.
Also, I highly recommend to read the Hunger Games trilogy.

The genres of the film/ کتابیں is action.

Set in the near future, a girl called Katniss Everdeen volunteered to enter the Hunger Games, a game which is run سے طرف کی the government.
24 'tributes' will enter the arena and fight to the death until one person is remaining, who will be the winner.

Read Katniss' fights to stay alive as she battles the other 24 tributes to win her place as the winner.


Watch out for The Hunger Games, everyone will be talking about it within the following year.

Since everyone was so positive about my last article, I decided to make it a series of sorts. Different themes, maybe one مضمون a month. I am 23 and I still love all of the following books. People can enjoy them at any age, but these are especially great ones for kids and teens. There were so many to choose from, so I apologize that I had to leave out so many of my favorites. Let's all recapture youth! As always, these are in no particular order.

1. The Neverending Story سے طرف کی Michael Ende
This is one of the few fantasy novels that isn't an entire series. Not to offend anyone, but I do not like...
