The first  and last ones may be a little "advanced" for you, MJ

 

The second  wouldn't.....you can read the unabridged version here :

Caution.....it is L O N G  !!!!!!!......maybe a better Summer reading book.....also....the abridged version is probably just as good....but....you  will have to seek that  out......!!!!!

I don't read very much but a few of my favorites are Christy by Catherine Marshall, the entire Anne of Green Gables series (My favorite was Anne of the Island), and I know this is a silly one but I love the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series.

I'm personally a huge fan of Shakespeare's tragedies. you know, Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet. if you can get past the language and the Iambic pentameter then they make for really great reads. also, the Count of Monte Cristo is excellent. (if you can find the unabridged version it's even better.) without giving away too much, it's about a guy who's betrayed by his friends and is taken to a prison where an old man teaches him a lot of knowledge. (it takes place way in the past by the way) he escapes and takes revenge on everyone who betrayed him.

Hi MJ

I read "Grapes of Wrath'  by John Steinbeck  fairly recently.

I also thought it was very good too!

It is not to old, I mean you could read and understand it alright but the content may be a little old for you to fully appreciate.  I don't think you should read the abridge version of this book.  It is not heavily padded with unnecessary content.  It should be read as is.  That is what I think.

 

Anne of Green Gables sounds like and excellent choice. 

 

Here is a serise of books that I think you might really enjoy.

They are light and funny stories about the adventures of a country vet in England :)
