I know not everyone celebrates Christmas, but in many countries, there is a big break coming up, and I thought I would share some good vacation-type reads. So put these on hold at the पुस्तकालय now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials द्वारा Philip Pullman
(The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass)-I read this series once over a break and it is fantastic. Deep and meaningful while still a quick read. The 2nd one is my favorite.

2. Anna Karenina द्वारा Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing पुस्तकें I have ever read. I tackled this one over a क्रिस्मस break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when आप have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series द्वारा Christopher Paolini
(Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr) This is a good chance to catch up before the 4th book comes out. (Anyone know when that is, btw?) People may laugh at this pick, but the पुस्तकें are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. आप want to relax after all!

4. 1984 द्वारा George Orwell
If you've been putting it off, now's your chance to read this timeless classic!

5. Watership Down द्वारा Richard Adams
I know a book about rabbits on a quest sounds ridiculous but this book is completely wonderful. You'll get through it in no time.

6. Hans Christian Andersen's Fairy Tales
This book looks intimidating, but each of the stories are very short and they are magical. आप will प्यार this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

7. Lord of the Rings द्वारा J.R.R. Tolkien
Now, I understand that this task is a little overwhelming, but at least try to finish one of these 3 पुस्तकें over break. I promise it's still good even if आप spread it out. Tackle one this break, another in the spring and the last one over the summer.

8. The Girl of the Limberlost द्वारा Gene Stratton Porter
I completely loved this book when I was 15. It's a beautiful story. It has little to do with vacation, but it's a thick book, though a quick read once आप get into it.

9. Birth of Venus द्वारा Sarah Dunant
If आप like historical fiction, this one was very surprising to me in a good way. I usually don't go straight for the bestsellers, I'm और of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

10. The Last Wife of Henry VIII द्वारा Carolly Erickson
Another historical fiction. I learned a lot about English history and about Henry VIII and his many wives. The पुस्तकें starts when he's still married to his first wife. I read this book literally from cover to cover without setting it down. A great fast read.

So there आप have it. This is not a सूची of my प्रिय पुस्तकें (though many do fit into that category) but instead a true सूची of पुस्तकें I think आप will find very enjoyable over vacation. So challenge yourself and read as many as possible या even just one! Let me know what आप think, I'd प्यार to hear comments.

Michael Talbot
1982
406 pages

Michael Talbot has woven a tale of the vampire unlike any आप have read. He places them historically in the development of the human race, identifying them as artists, popes, collectors and inventors. He depicts them as the curators of all things important to human kind. It is the way they obtain those things worth protecting that is the meat of his book, The Delicate Dependency. Set in लंडन at the turn of the century, a kidnapping of a child occurs which sends her father and a renowned vampire hunter on a chase all over Europe. The father is a physician who has...
