My Book List

So I was working in a library this summer and I saw all these books that I wanted to read. So I decided to start a list of books to read before I die. But now I want more. SO I want you guys to give me your suggestions of books to read. It can be anything, from children's books to classics. I like biographies also so I really do mean anything. Or if you like an author tell me them too and I'll check out some of their books. Even activity kind of books. maybe I'll do the activities, or recipe books. Really I just like books. I just need to get a library card because as we all know having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card.

I want to see your list. One of my favorites of all time is The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom. Also, Cry, the Beloved Country.

Gay, I typed this whole long comment and my stupid work computer's internet connection timed out because its lame. You already have a library card, it just so happens BYU has a lot of flippin books. Read the following:
"The Plague"
"Christ Stopped at Eboli"
"Son of Italy"
"Things Fall Apart"
"All Quiet on the Western Front"
and basically anything about China is awesome: "The Good Earth," "Red China Blues," "Wild Swans" yeah.

You should totally check out Brandon Sanderson; he's a professor at BYU and has written some amazing books. My favorites of his would definitely be his Mistborn series. Also, I tried rereading some of the stuff that was required reading back in high school and discovered that I liked some of the stuff that I absolutely hated back then. Other than that, I would highly suggest 'The Count of Monte Cristo'.

We need to remember that this is Alicia that we are recommending to. These books shold match her reading level. I would suggest, Dick and Jane. Or, The Little Engine that Could.

Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn (shut up lindsey, i like them!)
