    don't label a book by when you read it. My advice is find the nearest book and read it. My other thoughts are brave new world, anything orwell, or anything vonnegut (he is always a fun heavily-light read).

    For you I might suggest: Winter of Fire by Sheryl Jordan http://www.amazon.com/Winter-Fire-Point-Sherryl-Jordan/dp/0590452894 It's an empowering story of a young girl sent to be executed for breaking societal decorum, but then ends up the most honored female in the world not a week later. The story is the introduction of this, and the play out of what she does afterward. The setting is in a bleak future where clouds keep the entire world ice cold. I quite enjoyed the story, even though I'm probably not the intended audience :)

    The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. Possibly my favorite book of all time. I read it every summer.

    Read The Autobiography by Benjamin Franklin; no other book has motivated me like this and that's always what I needed during summer breaks.

    I personally recommend The Holy Bible. From a purely impartial standpoint, reading Bible can be a very entertaining book and even provides for a philosophical standpoint if one takes in the religious context behind it. I, myself, am agnostic and find any intricate explanation compelling to ponder. Another of my favorites is The Art of War. This is a bit more tuned to the analytical and ponderous of mind but still has a lot to offer and can be fun fitting the information given into the modern era. If you're looking for something a bit less controversial or studious, I would also recommend these books: East of Eden, 1984, All Creatures Great and Small, The LOTR or Harry Potter series. Anything posted on a college recommended reading list is always a good place to start.

    Just finished Barbara Kinsgsolver's The Lacuna--gritty, magical, artful , political tale that weaves Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and a young mentor

    'Down and Out in London and Paris' by George Orwell.Its not as well known as say Animal Farm but it is lighter and very easy to read.. The insight into what went on in the kitchens of top Parisian restaurants is amazing. It's one of the few books I would read again
