At the front of the bus, Billie picks up a pair of Chris's patched, ragged jeans and, closing her eyes, presses them to her face.

Maggie_Reads Loved that book! Outside of my regular reading genre but I was hooked. Cried a few tears over it too. 3w
RayHallucinogen @Maggie_Reads the movie had a soul, and told the story beautifully. The book on the other hand, gave us this bigger picture that it wasn't only Chris's story. Way too many people left the society to find their tragic death in the wilderness. 3w

I would never understand how this is a children's book. The story is harrowing.

East of Eden | John Steinbeck

Hey, guys. Do you know if it's possible to read comic books on kindle?

jen_the_scribe Yes! They have comixology for comics, graphic novels, and manga through Amazon. 2mo
RayHallucinogen That's very helpful. Thank you @jen_the_scribe 2mo
Scochrane26 I‘ve read them on kindle through Libby & hoopla from my library. Think many comic readers enjoy the format. 2mo
RayHallucinogen I'm gonna try that for sure. Thank you @Scochrane26 2mo

East of Eden | John Steinbeck

For the world was changing, and sweetness was gone, and virtue too. Worry had crept on a corroding world, and what was lost-good manners, ease and beauty? Ladies were not ladies any more, and you couldn't trust a gentleman's word.

A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens

I read some books, so what should I do to make them count for our team? @Clwojick

Clwojick There‘s a breakdown depending on which books you read. 25 pts if the book mentions Christmas, New Years, winter, Hanukkah etc. 15pts if it‘s a book on your TBR or one you‘ve been wanting to read. 10 pts for a new to you/impulse read. You also get 10 points per hour read during any Readathon you participate in this month. 13mo
RayHallucinogen Thank you so much 13mo

RayHallucinogen Yes, we should definitely try a buddy read. 14mo
Clwojick Ahahahahah! Wow, I just realized I forgot to tag which book I was even talking about on your massive list. 😜🤦🏻‍♀️ Although there are tons on here I want to read, I was specifically talking about 14mo
RayHallucinogen I thought you were a Harry Potter fan since the Goblet of Fire was tagged. Don Quijote has to wait the winter break 14mo
persephone1408 The goblet of fire is, in my opinion, the best of the Harry potter series. 14mo

The world is ours, we are its lords, and ours it shall remain. As for the host of labor, it has been in the dirt since history began and it shall remain so long as I and mine and those that come after us have the power. There is the word. It is the king of words - Power. Not God, not Mammon, but Power. Pour it over your tongue till it tingles with it. Power. (1910. The USA)

The Road | Jack London

In 1894, Jack London shared his experience on some bulls/policemen. "I lost all interest in explanations. I didn't stop to pick up my precious, unread book. I turned and ran. I was pretty sick, but I ran. And ran I shall, to my dying day, whenever a bull begins to explain with a club."

Crime and Punishment by Dostoyevski is one of the great books. What's your favorite classic?

nanuska_153 Crime and Punishment is also one of my favourites and was my first Dostoyevsky. David Copperfield is another of my favourite classics 2y
RayHallucinogen You guys know your classics. I get so inspired checking Litsy daily, it's so refreshing. 2y
Schwifty Favorite classic? Hmm. Probably War and Peace- A great story, although Tolstoy himself doubted its merits as a complete novel. 2y
RayHallucinogen It's definitely on my list. 2y
AshleyHoss820 I don‘t know if I have a favorite, but A Tale of Two Cities and the Count of Monte Cristo are pretty high up there! 2y
rmaclean4 @nanuska_153 I read David Copperfield for the first time last year. Loved it. Jane Eyre is one I have read a lot. Pride and Prejudice is another favorite. 2y
nanuska_153 @rmaclean4 same here! Love both Jane Eyre and P&P! 2y

The Grapes of Wrath | John Steinbeck
post image
Pickpick

Steinback is brutally honest picturing the early 20th century american society. People constantly daydreaming and at the same time facing harsh life conditions, poverty and hunger, makes him an author Europe should explore a lot more.

VioletBramble I love this book, but, East of Eden is my favorite Steinbeck.

It was suppposed to be March Melville, but it took me longer to read this one. Some of the characters are pure gold, but most of all the depiction of the life on the sea as a sailor boy is amazing. Onto the next one #WhiteJacket
