About a Boy by Nick Hornby
About a Boy

brunettegal418, January 3, 2008

This is a cunningly written story by a quietly extrordinary writer, Nick Hornby. This story tells of a bored, rich man searching for a wife, who ends up posing as a single dad. The problem is, now he needs a son. This clever, funny, yet moving story tells of the bonding between a man and a boy who otherwise seem completley opposite. This is a must read not only because of Hornby's captivating writing, but because this charming story will stay with the reader forever.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss
How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

brunettegal418, January 3, 2008

This is a classic must read by, in my opinion, the greatest children's book writer. Not only does this word twisting story give a tale of hope and love during Christmas, but Seuss creates a simple tale that can never be read too many times. This fun to read book must be read by everyone looking for a deliciously refreshing tale to be enjoyed anytime and anywhere.

This timeless tale will be read by people of all ages for generations to come!
