Title: From The Dust Returned 

Comments: 

Ray Bradbury has been one of my favorite authors since I first read The Martian Chronicles in high school. With his disarmingly simple, yet elegant prose, he evokes nostalgia in every story. With From the Dust Returned, we are transported to a small town in Illinois to join a family that celebrates Halloween like Christmas, with a menagerie of goblins and ghouls, mostly harmless, but wickedly delightful. This collection of stories revolving around this unique family will be your next fall favorite read, perfect with a crackling fire and a howling wind!

Bookseller: Cheri

Title: East of Eden

Comments: 

"And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good." When I read this book I was SO moved on so many levels. If you want to read an expansive historical saga look no further. The character of Adam Trask has lived with me for years.  Salinas Valley, CA exists in my mind as Steinbeck described in it such intricate detail. The character f Lee also made such an impression on me.  Major themes: guilt, love, beneficence, acceptance, self destructive tendencies, depravity and freedom. Many parallels with the Bible: Genesis as well as Cain & Abel. And Timshel - man has the power to choose his path, neither good or evil.  AMAZING.

Title: It

Comments: 

Long before this became a movie and Pennywise haunted you on screen this book completely and totally transfixed 16 yr old me. There is no greater book that deals with fear, in my opinion.  Fear that takes the shape of whatever terrifies you.  But what most people don't realize is this book is one of the VERY BEST at depicting the closeness and beauty of childhood friendship. Large in scope, it takes us from childhood to adulthood, but the investment in the characters really makes the length of the book unimportant.  I blew through it in my teens and re-read it again as an adult and loved it just as much.

Title The Sign of the Four

Comments: 

My favorite Sherlock Holmes story. A woman by the name of Mary Morstan, shows up to the infamous Baker St. apartment carrying a letter and rare pearls. She hopes finding out the identity of the sender will lead to answers on her father's disappearance. The case has danger, intrigue, and a very interesting cast of characters. This timeless classic is an absolute must read.

Comments: 
We studied this book in my 5th grade English class and it has stuck with me ever since . "Stay Gold, Ponyboy" has been a phrase I use all too regularly. It feels like a classic. The bond they have and how they take care of each other is really touching. They created the family they always wanted.
