The 100 Most Influential 图书 Ever Written: The History of Thought from Ancient Times to Today

I am 由 no means a great votary of any kind of "Best" lists and find them too subjective and at times highfalutin. But this 列表 of the 100 most influential & mind-expanding 图书 ever written seemed quite apposite and all-encompassing. British literary critic & historian Seymour-Smith's survey of what he considers the 100 most influential 图书 is a searching inquiry into major thinkers, writers and philosophers. Seymour-Smith finds most modernist techniques already...

The blush after your first kiss. The adrenaline of a roller coaster ride. Moving to a new town. None of these can compare to the emotions one feels after finishing a book so completely excellent that 你 want to buy it for everyone 你 know. I 爱情 that feeling. And somehow I have become blessed this past 月 for I have read not one but TWO of these wonderful books. Of course I have to share them now with 你 all and desperately hope that 你 will pick them up at the local library.

Stephen King "couldn't stop reading" it. Stephenie Meyer was so "obsessed . . . I had to take it with me out to 晚餐 and hide it under the edge of the table." Publishers Weekly called it "the best book of 2008."

What is it?

The Hunger Games!

In a not-too-distant future, the United States of America has collapsed and been replaced 由 Panem, a country divided into 12 districts and ruled 由 the Capitol.

To keep the districts in line, the Capitol has required that annually each of the Twelve Districts send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger...

图书 have definitely taken on a new meaning in the past few years. Before, 图书 were a way to past time, something to take your mind off your busy and chaotic life. Now, we can see those classic stories come to life on the big screen. There are many 电影院 which were based on books, most of them very good. But I think a lot of us rabid readers can agree that sometimes, it’s just better to leave the story in the pages of a book. First of all, it’s very hard to create a film that’s just as good as the book. 图书 have so much fun detail and information on what the characters are thinking....

This review was last edited on 6 November 2008. A caveat: keep in mind that this was written 由 an adult man 阅读 a young adult novel: my opinions will differ from many 粉丝 of the book just as my time in life and experience also differ.

In my mind, a review consists of three parts: a recommendation, a review of the plot, and a critique of the craft that went into the product. These each follow. If 你 have not read the book already and think 你 might, avoid the review and critique both, as they discuss the book in detail.

Recommendation: Definitely read Twilight if 你 are a preteen girl,...

 Another great book,
Another great book,
For all bookworms thirteen and over, well for bookworms who don't need each character explained to them each time there mentioned throughout the novel, I have a great book 你 may like to try out if 你 haven't already. 'The Way of Shadows' 由 Brent Weeks, the first book in the Night 天使 Trilogy. It's an action packed story filled with assassins, romance, friendship and life when it's hard. It's a 幻想 book that challenges your imagination and keeps 你 guessing. I have heard multiple phrases for it and 爱情 it myself. Another book of mine that I didn't want to put down.
If your searching...

A note to book-cover publishers: before 你 decide on a cover, go into a bookstore and head to the respective section. See the trend of tints and shades that color that genre. then pick a different color! It is astonishing that, even in this 日 and age, history 图书 about China and Russia are still primarily red, 图书 about Ireland are green, and "women's books"(i.e. Chick Lit and Self Help) are pastel pink, blue 或者 yellow. Honestly, even murder mystery books, when targeted towards female readers, take on 粉, 粉色 as opposed to the red and/or black of other mysteries.

The psychology of book...

We all 爱情 books. That's a given. But what about bookstores? What are your thoughts on them?

I'm just going to presume that 你 爱情 bookstores, and even more, independent bookstores. But in this 日 and age when it is too easy to 搜索 for and buy 图书 online *cough* 亚马逊 *cough*, I want to remind all of the wonderfulness of independent bookstores. But I also want to remind 你 that they are suffering. These historical and community treasures need your help!

And so I want to direct your attention to an upcoming PBS documentary called Paperback Dreams. Paperback Dreams is the story...

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 日 that I saw my first ghost—and the ghost saw me.

Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won't leave me alone. To 最佳, 返回页首 it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a "special home" for troubled teens. Yet the 首页 isn't what it seems. Don't tell anyone, but I think there might be 更多 to my housemates than meets the eye. The 问题 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.

Tantalize (Cynthia Leitich Smith) was an awsome book. I really enjoyed it. It had me guessing what was going to happen until the very end!

Here is a piece about the book:

Quincie Morris has never felt 更多 alone. Her hybrid werewolf first 爱情 threatens to embark on a rite of passage that will separate them forever. And just as she and her uncle are about to unveil Austin's red-hot vampire-themed restaurant, a brutal murder leaves them scrambling for a chef. Can Quincie transform the new hire, Henry Johnson, into a culinary Dark Lord before opening night? Will he be able to to wow the crowd in fake fangs, a cheap cape, and red contact lenses? 或者 is there 更多 to his earnest fresh face than meets the eye?

As human and preternatural forces clash a deadly 爱情 三角形, 三角 forms and the line between predator and prey begins to blur. Who's playing whom? And how long can Quincie play along before she loses everything?
