Don't quit, save a tiny little ember, a spark and never give them that spark, because as long as you have that spark, you can start the greatest fire again. I still kept the spark. I will not quit.

Great book or the greatest book? Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut. #vonnegut #americanlit #classiclit #1959
champagne_jam_ : Vonny f baby
xrate16 : Great book. My favorite is still Timequake but that may be because it was the book that got me into Vonnegut
factshack : Timequake is also fantastic.
louisdubya : I personally enjoy "Bluebird" but "Sirens" is great as well
louisdubya : *bluebeard"
factshack : Bluebeard is also fantastic. I've really never read a KV book I didn't like. Galapagos is another favorite.

cat_mattnese : Right on! I'm loving those typefaces! Btw, you're BF and I are friends! I noticed you two were dating and I got really excited! I saw Chris's mom and dad one day in the falls and they said how much they liked you! Tell chris I said Hello and that I hope to see him (and you!) sometime soon! @gabriellegold
gabriellegold : @cat_mattnese oh man, thank you. I totally dig your work! Are you in the falls? We all could grab a beer sometime! Chris' rents are great- I love 'em. I'll tell him you say hey!
cat_mattnese : I'm not living in the falls anymore, I'm in Tonawanda, but I work in The falls still and in Buffalo! Ya that'd be awesome! I'm always down for a beer or two! Thank you! That means a lot! @gabriellegold

I read the author’s note, prologue, and ten pages from chapter 1 and I’m ready to give this book ALL the stars. Looks like my first #summerread will be a winner. “What you believe has no effect on the truth.” “If love is missing from your soul, your mind, you won’t be able to find what you need. You may not recognize it.” “Make your own happiness inside yourself and, when you have enough to share, find someone to share it with." #jcaliforniacooper #insearchofsatisfaction #africanamericanliterature #americanlit
chermyworld : Stealing will check out now
casuallyallure : She is my favorite.
kimlechelle : @shannon_rhp she is the truth! #jcaliforniacooper
shannon_rhp : I'm late to the party @casuallyallure and @kimlechelle. There are a few writers like her that have sort of eluded the masses but have fans that go hard for them. Pearl Cleage, Paule Marshall, Tayari Jones...I haven't read any of them. So much reading to do.

The Last of the Mohicans has, like every other Fenimore Cooper novel I've read, been an utter exercise in endurance and patience. At times I've wanted to throw it across the room and other times haven't wanted to stop reading.

More from the Pacific . Inherent Vice (California) takes place in LA in 1970. Doc Sportello is a detective who spends his time getting stoned and solving crimes. In that order. The story follows Doc as he investigates the disappearance of a billionaire land developer. It’s written by Pynchon, so it’s nothing like a typical private eye novel . Sometimes A Great Notion (Oregon) is Kesey’s lesser known novel. As independent loggers, the Stamper family decides to supply Wakonda Pacific Lumber while the unionized loggers strike. The Stampers try to meet the contract and deal with the internal conflicts that have pit family member against family member . The Dharma Bums (California) is Kerouac’s path to enlightenment. Ray Smith (Kerouac) and Japhy Ryder (Gary Snyder) are on a journey to find Truth through Zen Buddhism. Kerouac creates a contrast between traveling and meditating outdoors and drinking and partying with friends in the city. The influence of Japanese poetry is evident throughout the novel “almost as if he were writing a book of a thousand haikus” (Allen Ginsburg) . Big Sur (California) should not be the first Kerouac novel you read, but it should be a Kerouac novel you read. This novel is a stark contrast to his other work in which the Beat boys are free-spirited wanderers. Here, “Jack Duluoz” is older and has gained fame as an author. Unable to handle newfound fame, he retreats to a West Coast cabin with his friends where he spirals into depression and alcoholism . #summerreadinggetaways (Pacific)

ninapimpisa : How's Kesey's one? I loveee One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Are they kind of the same vibe? :)
jayelind : 😍😍😍
lilitslittlelibrary : @rox_rocks_11 haha! Araxya, these are all books I've read over time. Not what I'm currently reading. 😊💕
lilitslittlelibrary : @ninapimpisa I wouldn't say they have the same vibe, but they have the same great storytelling by Kesey.
rox_rocks_11 : Wow, you're incredible; can we have coffee soon and discuss some of these, please? @lilitslittlelibrary 😘
lilitslittlelibrary : @rox_rocks_11 you're very sweet. Of course.😊
rox_rocks_11 : Okay, Lus n I decided on the 5th. See you soon gorgeous ladies. @lilitslittlelibrary

me_barnes : I hear that! I'm working my way through all his works this summer and it's probably the best reading decision I've ever made!

lilitslittlelibrary : @iman_the_book_worm_ It's a wonderful novel. Hope you get a chance to read it soon.
lilitslittlelibrary : @listied I couldn't choose my one favorite, but I can say that East of Eden is my favorite of his longer novels.
lilitslittlelibrary : @halfdesertedstreets @darnius @ziba.reads @literaryjourney @me_barnes love all this Steinbeck love. 😊💕✨
lilitslittlelibrary : @steinbeckcenter ✨Thank you.

Paradise (Oklahoma) is the third novel in a trilogy that includes Beloved and Jazz. The story is set in Ruby, an all-black town whose settlers were ex-slaves. Unable to find acceptance anywhere else they formed a community apart from the rest of the world. When tensions from the outside world seep into their community the townsmen find a source to blame for their troubles: a covenant for women seeking refuge. This story is told through multiple narratives and a series of flashbacks . #summerreadinggetaways (Southwest)

mybookbath : Sounds interesting.
lilitslittlelibrary : @mybookbath it's not as strong as Beloved, but it's good.
ldlyons : My favorite novel of all time. I prefer it to Beloved, actually.
lilitslittlelibrary : @ldlyons This is the first time someone has told me they prefer Paradise to the others. It's kind of nice to hear since most people generally prefer Beloved or The Bluest Eye.
ldlyons : Ruby's debate about the motto on the face of the oven gave me new ways to think about how faith communities engage, revise and activate sacred text. Also, Pat Best's fraught genealogy project was an accessible point of identification, given how difficult it can be to keep track of the novel's expansive cast of characters. It's a more challenging read, to be sure, but more rewarding in the ways that it moves readers to interrogate notions of faith, community and gender.
lilitslittlelibrary : I agree with you. Morrison revealed the history of the town in a very unique and gripping style. I've always found her novels to be filled with multiple layers of complex characters and themes that continually challenge the reader. Sula is my personal favorite. @ldlyons
ldlyons : OMG. I ADORE Sula. The ending was just perfection!

Cormac McCarthy has to make an appearance if we’re talking about the American West. I should have included No Country for Old Men but Blood Meridian and the last novel of the Border Trilogy will do just fine . Ceremony (New Mexico) follows the story of Tayo who has just returned home from fighting in WWII. Tayo suffers from PTSD being unable to cope with the death and suffering he witnessed during war. He returns to his family/home in the Laguna Pueblo reservation and looks to his Pueblo traditions for a source of healing. Silko, a Laguna Pueblo writer, combines prose and poetry in this work . The Bean Trees (Arizona) tackles various topics ranging from motherhood to undocumented immigrants. Taylor Greer leaves Kentucky (and her real name) and travels west where she eventually ends up in Tucson, Arizona. While driving through Oklahoma, she is left with a small child, Turtle, who is abandoned by her Cherokee mother. In Tucson, Taylor and Turtle befriend a couple, Estevan and Esperanza, who are political refugees from Guatemala . The Monkey Wrench Gang (desert between southern Utah and northern Arizona) has been so influential that it’s actually made “monkeywrenching” a term referring to sabotage. The four radical environmentalists imagined by Abbey 40 years ago aren’t exactly what we imagine environmentalists to be like today, but they certainly inspired ecoactivists. In this radical and witty novel we follow the gang as they take on the Glen Canyon Dam . #summerreadinggetaways (Southwest)

More from the Rocky Mountain states . A River Runs Through It (Montana) must be read. Maclean's semi-autobiographical novella captures his childhood and relationship with his brother Paul. Maclean's descriptions of the Big Blackfoot River and the Montana outdoors contributes to the stunning prose. There's a sadness in this work that lingers with you. In 1977, the Pulitzer Prize committee suggested the novella be selected as the winner for fiction; the Board did not award for fiction that year . The Shining (Colorado), written by the King of the horror genre, really needs no introduction. Here's one anyway. Jack Torrance is snowbound in the supernatural/haunted Overlook Hotel with his family. The supernatural forces overcome Jack's sanity and ... "Here's Johnny!" Yes, I love the film adaptation . #summerreadinggetaways (Rocky Mountains)
