Book suggestions, please.
Since I'm spending so much time at the library with my kids, I'm on a mission to read a lot of contemporary classics that I somehow never got around to reading. (By "contemporary," I mean in the last 50 years or so--but not TOO modern, or else it's not a classic. You with me?) For example, I finally read Catcher in the Rye (pretty good). I'm working on Girl with a Peal Earring right now (I know it's not really a "classic," but the librarian recommended it).
So if any of you have a book that you love and consider a must read, please let me know.
(Yes, it's Friday night and I'm asking for book suggestions. I suck.)
