July Read--The Vampire Chronicles, Prince Lestat and The Realms of Atlantis by Anne Rice

Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis: The Vampire Chronicles

My vacation read!  I purchased a paperback for my electronic-free camping and beach trip.  It is now beat up and dog eared after being drug all over Wisconsin!

I love Anne Rice--another great book!  I inadvertently skipped the book before it, Prince Lestat, now I need to go back and read that one.

July Books! Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe

Image result for easton press uncle tom's cabin

I picked this book up for two reasons:  one, it is a great, historical novel and a book that I have heard about a lot, but have never read and two, because it is one of the books in the Easton Press 100 greatest books ever written.  I am collecting these gorgeous books and this one is one of 19 that I own, as of now.  I don't want these books just for show, I want to read them and learn from them.

As with all books written long ago, it took me a while to get used to the writing style, but it wasn't too difficult.  The book is an piece of our country's' history and I'm glad I read it.  The character's stories were interesting and tragic, all told with an aim to expose the true horror that was slavery.
