Oh the Places You'll Go
Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

This is the book I will read to my students every year at the end of the school year, no matter what grade I teach!  Even if it has a 3.2 reading level.  My 12th grade English teacher read our class this the day before graduation, and I remember how relevant and special it was.  It is so encouraging and meaningful for youth who are about to cross over into a new chapter.  I love this book!

The Diary Of Edward The Hamster (1990-1990)
The Diary of Edward the Hamster 1990–1990 - Miriam Elia,Ezra Elia

Edwards diary had the power to touch me way more than I anticipated after I picked it up in the bookstore, thinking a hamster's diary would be funny.

 

While it is a super quick read, and there are loads of pictures it is so much more than Edward trying to resist the temptations of the running wheel (and utterly failing every single time). In a way it even had philosophical proportions looking at Edward's life as a caged pet and the expectations of the people around him.

 

Touching.

Into the Blue (Harry Barnett #1) by Robert Goddard
Into the Blue - Robert Goddard

 


18 hours 15 mins, read (brilliantly) by Paul Shelley.

Description: Harry Barnett is a middle-aged failure, leading a shabby existence in the shadow of a past disgrace, reduced to caretaking a friend's villa on the island of Rhodes and working in a bar to earn his keep. Then a guest at the villa - a young woman he had instantly and innocently warmed to - disappears on a mountain peak. Under suspicion of her murder, Harry stumbles on a set of photographs taken by Heather Mallender in the weeks before her disappearance. Desperately, obsessed by the mystery that has changed his life, he begins to trace back the movements and encounters that led to the moment when she vanished into the blue. The trail leads him back to England, to a world he thought he had left for ever, and at every step of the way a new and baffling light is shed on all the assumptions that have made Harry what he is...

From wiki: Into the Blue was adapted for television in 1997 and starred John Thaw in the lead role of Harry Barnett. Robert Goddard was not impressed with the adaptation. In an interview, he said "The TV version of Into the Blue was a travesty of the story I wrote and I am determined that any future adaptations should be more faithful to the original."

Some renditions of Silenus remind me of a certain Old Bailey hack.

Excellent suspense novel, it's not hard to see why Goddard is on my favourite authors list, and 'Into the Blue' stood up proud under re-visit scrutiny.
