Crome Yellow

by Aldous Huxley

It's hard to believe the author of Brave New World could write such a humorous book. It's a tough read but well worth it in my opinion. One example - the minister soliciting funds from war widows for a World War I memorial, claiming that since the husbands had died abroad, the money the widows saved on burial costs should be donated to the memorial.

Stickeen

by John Muir

A very good story by John Muir, about an adventure he had in Alaska with a personality-filled dog. It's a work of fiction, but Muir's love of nature comes through in every word.

The Awakening

by Leo Nikoleyevich Tolstoy

Tolstoy can't write anything bad apparently. This is a great book about a Russian nobleman who has lost the ideals of his youth. The nobleman finds himself as a jury member where a woman he had wronged is accused of murder. I don't wish to give it all away, but you will not be disappointed with this great book.

Toilers of the Sea

by Victor Hugo

A great, great adventure. The hero Gilliat sacrifices all for love in this story of ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of terrible adversity. OK, so Hugo was not an expert on the octopus (nor was he apparently aware of the phenomenon of hypothermia), but you will be entertained every second of this wonderful book.
