At first I've seen that site, it wasn't familier to me it filled with English and some writtings couldn't give me impression. Just like enourmous sites in the world, it dealed with simple points too seriously than I thought, I couldn't agree to them. After glance at once, I forgot about that site.
But it gives me some imformations about English books for reading. So I saved the informations here for my reading brust.
- A Return to Love / by Marianne Williamson
- Oprah: This book helped me realize that there are only two emotions, love and fear. In every relationship, you're always moving toward one or the other.
- Favorite quote: "In every moment, we teach either love or fear. As we demonstrate love towards others꿾e learn how to love more deeply."
- To Kill A Mockingbird / by Harper Lee
- Oprah: Harper Lee's masterpiece—my favorite novel of all time—traces one lawyer's effort to defend a wrongly accused black man without sacrificing the innocence of his children.
- Favorite quote: "There is one way in this country in which all men are created equal—there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution, gentlemen, is the court."
- The Bluest Eye / by Toni Morrison
- Oprah: Toni Morrison's brilliant novel tells the story of Pecola Breedlove, a young black girl who wants to be someone other than herself so much that it drives her crazy.
- Favorite quote: "It had occurred to Pecola some time ago that I꿻hose eyes of hers were different, that is to say, beautiful, she herself would be different…If she looked different, beautiful, maybe Cholly would be different, and Mrs. Breedlove too. Maybe they'd say, 'Why, look at pretty-eyed Pecola. We mustn't do bad things in front of those pretty eyes.'"
- Their Eyes Were Watching God / by Zora Neale Hurston
- Oprah: Zora Neale Hurston's classic is my favorite love story of all time. Janie Mae Crawford spends almost two decades with abusive dominating men but eventually finds true love with Tea Cake. In the time they have together, he teaches her to open her heart to the world.

- Discover the Power Within You / by Eric Butterworth
- Oprah: This book changed my perspective on life and religion. Eric Butterworth teaches that God isn't "up there." He exists inside each one of us, and it's up to us to seek the divine within.
- Favorite quote: "But the greatest mistake is in believing that we are 'only human… ' We are human in expression but diving in creation and limitless in potentiality."
- I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings / by Maya Angelou
- Oprah: Maya Angelou's autobiography was the first book I ever read that made me feel my life as a colored girl growing up in Mississippi deserved validation. I loved it from the opening lines [below].
- Favorite quote: "'What you looking at me for? I didn't come to stay.' … Whether I could remember the rest of the poem or not was immaterial. The truth of the statement was like a wadded-up handkerchief, sopping wet in my fists, and the sooner they accepted it, the quicker I could let my hands open and the air would cool my palms."
- The Seat of the Soul / by Gary Zukav
- Oprah: Gary Zukav believes that your intentions determine your actions and their consequences. Now I don't do anything without being clear about my intentions.
- Favorite quote: "Every action, thought and feeling is motivated by an intention, and that intention is a cause that exists as one with an effect. … In this most profound way, we are held responsible for every action, thought and feeling, which is to say, for our every intention.
