There is no end of books I'd like to see under the tree this December. If I could pick three, they would be:

1. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. Many of my friends have read this and claim it is the best thing. Ever. I don't read much history, so I'd like to have it as a change of pace.
2. Lessons from a Dead Girl by Jo Knowles. This is a book Reed doesn't have and I'm curious to read. It has been challenged in a couple of different cases, and I firmly believe in reading material that disturbs people.
3. Rebound by Bob Krech. I haven't read a sports book in a while, and basketball isn't a sport I've ever read about. Baseball, football, soccer. But never hoop.

Jared greenwald | 5 comments 1. Glass by Ellen Hopkins. I would like to get this because i have read many other books by her and liked them all.

2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I would like to read this because many of my friends that have read this liked it and it looks good.

3. The Plot Against America by Philip Roth. I would like to read this because it look very interesting and may be a challenging book to read.
