Extra Time

So now that I have some extra time this winter while my photography slows down, I want to do some reading and movie watching. But I don't want to chose just any books or any movies, I'd like to pick books that have been hits in book clubs, and movies that are old classics. So I spent some time on the library website looking for some... this is what I have requested so far... and I'm looking for some more suggestions.
But first let me say, I'm not interested in the Twilight series, nor am I interested in action/guns kind of stuff.

The Secret Life of Bees

42nd street
It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world
Moby dick
Monkey Business
Stage Door (Yeah, I noticed a Ginger Rogers thing going on here)

Have any good suggestions to my list?

As for books, I've loved:
*Peace Like a River (Leif Enger)
*A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (Betty Smith)
*Lynn Austin's historical fiction series, Candle in the Darkness
*Princess Academy (Shannon Hale) -- this is for kids, but I still loved it. Good light reading. ;-)

I'm with Beth, Princess Academy was good. Jane Austen books are good, Pride & Prejudice etc. Have you read the Twilight series or her other book The Host? Those are really good. If you're into g-rated romances, I like the Love Inspired series.

As for movies, geez, you may have to check my Monday Movie Reviews on my blog to see which ones I recommend. Have fun!

Thanks for some of the suggestions.
And, geeze Michelle, write a movie review will ya? I looked and don't see anything for entries and entries and entries.
