"The Road" by Cormac McCarthy. Won the 2007 Pulitzer. It's just great. I can only say: wow.
"One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, if you haven't read it yet. A classic of the 'magic realism' style, set in Colombia... marvelous book.
"Teacher Man" by Frank McCourt... autobiography of this Irishman's first attempts as a teacher of English in four different New York City schools. It chronicles his fears, feelings, fights... it's humorous and poignant. It's good.Barns and noble?
If you are part of their little club(get the card for like $35/yr) you get weekly emails wth deals for various amounts off. I think Borders program is better though as its FREE and I get weekly emails for various sales and I get points good towards certificates later in the year.
Go to Barnes And Noble's website and search for books in the "used %26amp; out of print" section. Books are a lot cheaper when they're used, and many of them are still in great condition and hardly look used at all. I buy a lot of books this way.
As for book recommendations...
"Artemis Fowl" (and its sequels) are fantasy/science fiction stories that are extremely addicting (to me) and really funny. They're about a 12-year-old criminal mastermind who... does criminal things. In the first book, he kidnaps a fairy and demands a ransom-- but this fairy race is armed and dangerous and Artemis may have gotten in over his head. I *promise* it's not as silly as I make it sound. It's awesome, exciting, and keeps you guessing as you try to figure out Artemis's plans.
"The Supernaturalist," which is by the same author (Eoin Colfer), is also a great story. It's science fiction, too, and is very exciting. I can't really explain what it's about, honestly... you'll have to check it out for yourself.
"Airman" (also by Eoin Colfer... um... forgive me, I'm addicted to his books right now...) is also great so far, but I haven't finished it yet. Lots of humor, which Colfer really has a talent for. Pick up one of his books if you like adventure, excitement, and a good laugh. =)
