Night Book Description :

Born into a Jewish ghetto in Hungary, as a child, Elie Wiesel was sent to the Nazi concentration camps at Auschwitz and Buchenwald. This is his account of that atrocity: the ever-increasing horrors he endured, the loss of his family and his struggle to survive in a world that stripped him of humanity, dignity and faith. Describing in simple terms the tragic murder of a people from a survivor's perspective, Night is among the most personal, intimate and poignant of all accounts of the Holocaust.

When Will I Sleep Through the Night Book Description :

You are having a baby. How do you feel? Excited? Nervous? Downright terrified? For most people, even if it is something they have longed for, having a baby is a voyage into the great unknown, a turning point after which their lives will never be the same again. When Will I Sleep Through the Night? is a beautifully written account of one woman's experience of pregnancy and the first year of her child's life.

"I have a dog. Nothing exotic or special, just an ordinary dog. In fact, I always thought he was a boring dog.
