Which book titles do you find most memorable/influential?

For some books I have long forgotten the content, but the title is seared into my memory. Because it is catchy, powerful, or otherwise clever.

One that comes to mind is "Welcome to the Monkey House" by Kurt Vonneghut. It perfectly sums up his irreverent yet pessimistic style. Actually I think it would work as a title for almost all of his novels - the whole world was his monkey house. The other for me would be "Kusamakura" by Soseki Natsume. Literally it translates as grass pillow and the meaning is journey. But mainly I like it just because it sounds beautiful, the way the word rises and falls in equally lettered syllables.

Interested in others - even if its memorable for being so bad.

Fantasy book title help

I read this fantasy book repeatedly some 35 years ago. Its a familiar story about a kid who learns he has magic powers. There is a quest with a host of friends to take out some evil bad guy. Which he does but awakes at the end to discover all his hair has burnt off. If you know the book's title please let me know. Thanks

A look at Dark Age from the Previous Books **Spoilers All**

As many of you may know, Pierce loves to hint at future events. One of the most noticeable ways has been to place future book titles throughout the series. While looking for where he β€œhid” Dark Age, I came across a lot of interesting quotes for the series so far. Now these quotes only go up until Morningstar, and I haven’t finished Iron Gold on my re-read so I’m probably still missing some good stuff. Nevertheless, I will try to break down what I’ve found so far and how it might relate to the upcoming book.

> Mars. A gruesome deity. You’re fit for this, aren’t you lot? Barbarity? Past centuries. Dark ages. RR 27

This is the first hint of dark ages in the books and its obvious what is meant here. This is Mustang speaking to House Mars at the institute about their horrific behavior. There isn’t much else I found that was seemingly relevant to my search so we are already moving on to book 2.

> On Luna, there is no dark. No true dark, at least. GS 7

This isn’t outright talking a

Long time Redditor, first time AMA’er here. My name is Marissa Orr, and I’m a former Googler and ex-Facebooker turned author. It all started on a Sunday afternoon in March of 2016, when I hit send on an email to Sheryl Sandberg, setting in motion a series of events that ended 18 months later when I was fired from my job at Facebook. Here’s the rest of that story and why it inspired me to write Lean Out, The Truth About Women, Power, οΌ† The Workplace: https://medium.com/@MarissaOrr/why-working-at-facebook-inspired-me-to-write-lean-out-5849eb48af21

If you have any books you'd like to donate, please, please consider donating to your local jail

I'm far from being a perfect person, and I've ended up in jail a few times in my life. As flawed as I am, I love literature with all of my heart. The books that I've read and loved have become a part of who I am, a part of myself which I nurture and cherish. Something that cannot be taken from me.

My first time in jail, I was terrified. I was 25 years old, in a new state, and doing 30 days. Jail is cruel and dehumanizing but most of all it's boring. It was such a relief to find that my county jail actually had a decent little library! I read at least one novel, sometimes two, every single day I was in that jail.

It was there that I discovered Gene Wolf's Book of the New Sun, now a favorite series of mine. I discovered Faulkner and Southern Gothic literature, something that I adore to this day. I read Steinbeck, outside of the scope of what they had us read in school. Reading was just about the only self care I was capable of in that awful place, and despite the best efforts of the

We should re-read our favorite childhood books more often.

College student here (no I’m not an English major haha). Since my junior year of high school, I’ve started a tradition of challenging myself to read through as much of the Harry Potter series as I can get through while on winter break. A couple of reasons I do this:

  1. It’s a refreshing mental break (especially as I get further into college) after frying my brain with finals

  2. gives me something to do instead of solely scrolling through my phone or binging shows for a month. Even with as much of an avid reader as I am, sometimes it's still hard to finish but fun enough to keep me engaged.

  3. I’m no scientist, but there is something healing for me about engaging with my childhood. The older I get and the more complicated life becomes, I get to the point where I truly look forward to reading as a reset & reward after a tough semester (or just a tough day). I think it does me a lot of good to remind myself why I love reading and what a privilege it is to have that be a part of m

Books you thought were amazing...until you tried reading them again.

One upon a time I picked up a book in W H Smiths and read the blurb on the back. It sounded sort of interesting, but maybe not enough to totally grab me. I was about to put it back when a fellow next to me said something like, β€œThat’s an amazing series. I can’t wait until enough time has gone by that I’ve forgotten about it enough to read it again.” He kinda sold me on it right there and then. I picked it back up and they rung it up at the till. The book was Lord Foul’s Bane, the first book in the Thomas Covenant fantasy series. I read it, I loved it, and devoured the next five books.

By the end of it I felt like that guy who had, once upon a time, told me he couldn’t wait until enough time had gone by so that he could read them again fresh. I waited years. Then...holy shit...news came out that Stephen Donaldson was writing a final four book series! Holy shit! I can wait until they’re all written, right?

A great opening sentence or paragraph can really grab you - I was re-reading the Dark Tower series earlier this year and was struck all over again by the opening sentence, which Stephen King apparently came up with first, and the entire series followed from this opener:

"The man in black fled across the desert, and the gunslinger followed." - The Gunslinger, Stephen King.

"Diary Ends Here" has to be one of the saddest ending lines in any book

I just got around to reading Anne Frank's Diary. I went into it without really knowing anything about her, other than the fact that she dies. As I approached the end, I was half-expecting her to reveal suspicions of some person who may have potentially rat them out, as foreshadowing is common in any work of fiction. But this wasn't fiction (and I read fiction almost exclusively). Yet my mind had trouble making that distinction, and so I'm still waiting for something that can resemble a traditional conclusion, but instead I'm met with an abrupt end.

It was just another entry like any other. There was no foreshadowing of anything because she didn't know what was going to happen next. She never knew that would be her last entry. And to make it all the more tragic, everything was looking up for them. The U.S. and Britain were making strong headway against the Germans. She was even hopeful for being able to return to school in the fall. They just needed to have had held out a little longe

Books saved me as a child.

While I was growing up, my mom, dad, older brother and I lived in a small, one-bedroom house. My parents used to fight all the time. Dad was a drunk. Well, he still is. One of those mean drunks, you know. He would come home, red-faced and just furious, for some reason. Anyway, at some point I discovered books. As we were all in that one small room with shouting and whatever, I would sit in a corner with a book in my lap and just shut everything out. I would escape into the story and would no longer hear or notice what was happening around me. People would have to call on me a few times to get my attention.

I believe that is what helped me get through that life. Even to this day (I am 28 now), I'm able to zone out, most often when immersed in a book.

Read, people, to stay sane.

(Spoilers main) Best and worst changes from book to show?

I think some of the best changes included:

  • Arya being Tywins cupbearer rather than Roose’s
  • Brienne vs the Hound
  • Robb being upset with Catelyn for releasing Jamie; in the books he’s not overly angry with her as he understands he did it as a worried mother, but I think it’s far more likely he’d be angry at her for releasing such a prized hostage, so I liked that he was actually angry with her on the show.

And I think some of the worst changes included:

  • omission of Young Griff plot line
  • omission of Arianne/Doran/Quentyn plot lines
  • omission of Jeyne Poole/ fArya plot line
  • Jamie going back to Cersei when in one of his last chapters he burns her letter pleading for his help
  • no lady stone heart

What’d you think?

4 years ago my dad passed away, today I finally receive the first copy of the book he wrote and never dared to publish

First of all, my dad was in love with books, really.. Reading was his life. I didn't know that writing was a part of it too...

4 years ago, I was 22, he passed away. Few months after that my mom gave me a 150 pages of text and told me it was written by my dad and one of his guilty dream was to some day be published.

It took me few weeks, maybe months, to finally read it, some handwritten notes from my mom was also in the text, it was like I was having a last discussion with my dad. I decided to do everything I could to publish it even at a really small scale.

At the beginning of this year my mom passed away too (she never really recovered from the loss of my father), I’m sad that I never had the chance to offer her one copy of the book, but today is a big achievement in my life and I wanted to tell my story here and share it with you, because a lot of my motivation and energy came from all the reddit community, so thank you everyone here for being such an awesome community.

EDIT:

I was chewed out by a stranger for not interacting with my child, because she was reading a book.

Wow. I'd thought I just share this ridiculousness with you. On our way,( by public transport) to the pediatrician my daughter deeply concentrated on ther "How to take care of your Horse" book and me just looking out of the window. A Lady (approximately in her late 50s) across the isle of the tram, stares at me and my daughter and starts to talk "I can't believe you haven't interacted with your child once in 15 minutes what a crap mother you are you should be ashamed." I was just so perplexed by the insanity of the situation, which furthermore proves, no matter what you do as a parent, there will always be somebody criticizing you. Heads up to all parents out there. You do a great job.

I am a Hollow Bookmaker Introvert (making a modest living crafting books from home and selling online), please AMA

Edit: Dec.12, 9:04 a.m. CST USA. I enjoyed answering a couple more questions this morning. My goal is to reply to every single question; I'll be back again hopefully this evening.

Greetings my fellow redditors!

I'm Kara, here's my proof And another proof ! :) I'm 44 and work from home handcrafting hollow books in lovely Stillwater, MN, USA. About 9 years ago I walked off my day job as a gallery guard at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art and took up making books full time along with my husband.

In a nutshell:

  • I graduated art school in '98 (studied painting and drawing)
  • During college also took a fortuitous course in book arts
  • Struggled with bipolar issues and past trauma issues throughout school and afterwards
  • Liked painting kind of sort of? Unsure who I am? OK weird.
  • Feared other people seeing my work (not good when trying to make money making art)

rant: Stop putting movie images as the book covers!

Seriously! I hate it, it takes so much of the imagination out of it for me. I can't say I LOVE Amy Adams, so my reading of Sharp Objects was seriously hindered by imagining her as the main character nonstop. Why put real photographs of people on book covers anyway!

I honestly think the state of book covers is atrocious. Half the time they all look like the same Photoshop *drivel, and the other half they're just famous actors from their adaptations.

Edit: Thank you for the silver and gold, fellow redditors! I had no idea this would blow up, but it's nice to know others share my opinion.

First book I’ve read in 6 years: And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. Finished it in 6 hours. Who else loves this book?

Seriously, this book was so gripping I could NOT put it down. I was worried that it would be a struggle after not reading for so long, but she made it so easy to just glide right through. I tried so hard throughout it to figure out who it was, and I never once came CLOSE! She is a pure master of mystery and suspense.

I can’t be the only one who loves this book, I know she’s pretty popular. Did you all figure out who it was while you were reading it, or did you struggle along like me?

β€”β€”

Edit: Destinysmith425 in the comments had a question I hope you all can answer! Is there a good order to read Christie’s other books in? For example, Murder on the Orient Express is labeled as #9 in the App Store.

My daughter is starting to get away from unicorns and rainbows, leaning towards a more sad/creepy/mysterious feel. What are some good books for her emerging emo side?

She reads a TON and isn't afraid of a long book. She devoured all the Percy Jackson books but she wants something darker. She's 10 going on 25. She tends to pick books with a female protagonist but I'm open to all suggestions. Thanks!

Edit: WOW so many great suggestions! Thanks so much everyone! So far, Santa is bringing her the first books of the Unfortunate Events and City of Ember series. I wish I could get her every book on this list (which I will save and we will cherish).
