<b>A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick</b><br /><br /> With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell鈥檚 <i>1984</i> takes on new life in this edition.<br /><br /> 鈥淥rwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.鈥濃€擳he New Yorker<br /> 聽<br /> In <i>1984</i>, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.<br /><br /> Lionel Trilling said of Orwell鈥檚 masterpiece, 鈥?lt;i>1984</i> is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.鈥?Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell鈥檚 novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

<b><b>Golding鈥檚 iconic 1954 novel, now with a new foreword by Lois Lowry, remains one of the greatest books ever written for young adults and an unforgettable classic for readers of any age.</b><br /> 聽<br /> </b>This edition includes a new Suggestions for Further Reading by Jennifer Buehler.<b><br /></b><br />At the dawn of the next world war, a plane crashes on an uncharted island, stranding a group of schoolboys. At first, with no adult supervision, their freedom is something to celebrate. This far from civilization they can do anything they want. Anything. But as order collapses, as strange howls echo in the night, as terror begins its reign, the hope of adventure seems as far removed from reality as the hope of being rescued.

<b><i> "This is Bella Andre at her finest! I love Elderflower Island, the bookshop, and Mari and Owen!" ~ 5 stars</i></b><br /><br />All Mari Everett's life, she's had two secret dreams: To own a bookstore, and to reunite with her long lost father. But when he passes away unexpectedly and she inherits his home and business, the only way she can learn about his life--especially why he abandoned her when she was three and never came back--is by leaving California to take over his bookstore in London.<br /><br />Owen Sullivan lives and works on Elderflower Island, a close knit community in London where it's impossible to keep a secret. It turns out, however, that Charlie Forsythe kept his daughter a secret from everyone for nearly thirty years. When Mari comes to London, Owen immediately falls for her. He's never met a woman so intelligent, determined and honest. Not to mention so beautiful that she takes his breath away.<br /><br />Soon, everyone on the island--including Owen's four siblings, parents and grandmother--is pitching in to help give the bookstore a fresh start. But as insatiable passion develops into love, will Mari and Owen be able to grab hold of their fresh start? Or will their pasts continue to cast a dark shadow over their chance at a brilliant future together in London?<br /><br /><i>"I loved Elderflower Island and couldn't put this book down!

The first volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure <i>THE LORD OF THE RINGS</i>聽<i>One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them</i><br /><br />In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins, as told in <i>The Hobbit</i>. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.<br /><br />鈥淎 unique, wholly realized other world, evoked from deep in the well of Time, massively detailed, absorbingly entertaining, profound in meaning.鈥?鈥?<i>New York Times</i>

<p><strong></strong></p><p><strong>A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick</strong></p><p><strong>The beloved American classic about a young girl's coming-of-age at the turn of the twentieth century. </strong></p><p>From the moment she entered the world, Francie Nolan needed to be made of stern stuff, for the often harsh life of Williamsburg demanded fortitude, precocity, and strength of spirit. Often scorned by neighbors for her family鈥檚 erratic and eccentric behavior鈥攕uch as her father Johnny鈥檚 taste for alcohol and Aunt Sissy鈥檚 habit of marrying serially without the formality of divorce鈥攏o one, least of all Francie, could say that the Nolans鈥?life lacked drama. By turns overwhelming, sublime, heartbreaking, and uplifting, the Nolans鈥?daily experiences are tenderly threaded with family connectedness and raw with honesty. Betty Smith has, in the pages of <em>A Tree Grows in Brooklyn</em>, captured the joys of humble Williamsburg life-from 鈥渏unk day鈥?on Saturdays, when the children of Francie鈥檚 neighborhood traded their weekly take for pennies, to the special excitement of holidays, bringing cause for celebration and revelry. Betty Smith has artfully caught this sense of exciting life in a novel of childhood, replete with incredibly rich moments of universal experiences鈥攁 truly remarkable achievement for any writer.</p>

<p><b>The official playscript of the original West End production of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.</b><br /><br />It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn't much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband, and father of three school-age children.<br /><br />While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.<br /><br />The playscript for <i>Harry Potter and the Cursed Child </i>was originally released as a 'special rehearsal edition' alongside the opening of Jack Thorne's play in London's West End in summer 2016. Based on an original story by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne, the play opened to rapturous reviews from theatregoers and critics alike, while the official playscript became an immediate global bestseller.<br /><br />This definitive and final playscript updates the 'special rehearsal edition' with the conclusive and final dialogue from the play, which has subtly changed since its rehearsals, as well as a conversation piece between director John Tiffany and writer Jack Thorne, who share stories and insights about reading playscripts. This edition also includes useful background information including the Potter family tree and a timeline of events from the Wizarding World prior to the beginning of <i>Harry Potter and the Cursed Child</i>.</p>

A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT.<br /> Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy.<br /> This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.
