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 도서관, 라이브러리 now to prepare for a long period of time for relaxation and good reading.

1. His Dark Materials 의해 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 의해 Leo Tolstoy
This is probably a challenge for a lot of people, but it's one of the most amazing 책 I have ever read. I tackled this one over a 크리스마스 break and finished in a little over a week. It's a good book to go for when 당신 have a long stretch of time to devote to it.

3. Inheritance series 의해 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 책 are very easy reads and pretty addicting. You'll get into them quickly which is perfect for the holidays. 당신 want to relax after all!

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

5. Watership Down 의해 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. 당신 will 사랑 this. Plus, you've got time to kill ;)

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

8. The Girl of the Limberlost 의해 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 당신 get into it.

9. Birth of Venus 의해 Sarah Dunant
If 당신 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 더 많이 of a classics girl, but I'd say this is a good vacation book.

10. The Last Wife of Henry VIII 의해 Carolly Erickson
Another historical fiction. I learned a lot about English history and about Henry VIII and his many wives. The 책 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 당신 have it. This is not a list of my 가장 좋아하는 책 (though many do fit into that category) but instead a true list of 책 I think 당신 will find very enjoyable over vacation. So challenge yourself and read as many as possible 또는 even just one! Let me know what 당신 think, I'd 사랑 to hear comments.
