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.

If آپ enjoy vampires, angels, unique story lines and lots of action then this book is for you. I have just read the first book on the Guild Hunter series سے طرف کی Nalini Singh – Angel’s Blood (Guild Hunter, Book 1). This book is a good debut to this series and I found it very different from Ms. Singh’s Psy-Changeling series.
A quick synopsis, Elena Deveraux, she’s a born vampire hunter; her best friend is Sara and she has a few childhood issues. She is a no nonsense type, feminine but tough as nails. She’s summoned سے طرف کی the archangel Raphael, he’s a high and mighty angel and ruler, he’s...

'Losing to Win' مصنف Randy Jernigan has put rumors to rest, coming out as gay on a Christian talk radio program this week.

The celebrity biographer opened up to close friend and talk دکھائیں host Stephen Seares about his "life-long burden" in a very emotional interview on the early Sunday morning show.

Jernigan was asked to appear on the دکھائیں to talk about politics and his support of Hillary Clinton when Seares سوالات turned personal.

"yes I'm gay..,and I've carried this secret with me all my life and I just can't do it anymore," Jernigan explained to the conservative radio audience. "It's...

My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.

All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don't even know what that means anymore. It all started on the دن that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To سب, سب سے اوپر it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the ہوم isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be مزید to my housemates than meets the eye. The سوال is, whose side are they on? It's up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House . . . before its skeletons come back to haunt me.
