Great books

amazon.com

I just finished the most amazing book: Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson. The last sentence was like a stone through the heart. Petterson very slowly and softly draws you into his wrenching story about a father and son living in Norway (home of my ancestors, by the way) that is unforgettable. I wish I could write more about it, but I’d be giving too much away. I’ll be soon buying his other books.

Some of my other favorites are Jane Eyre, Les Miserables, Anywhere But Here, A Fine Balance, White Oleander, Anna Karenina, A Tale of Two Cities, To Kill a Mockingbird, Greengage Summer, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and many more. It’s true, I am a bit of a romantic. But I like dark, edgy tales once in a while too.

Oh, and if you like saving money like I do, check out abebooks.com. You can get hardbacks for less than five bucks!
