    1. Every year, I get myself a book for Pesach, really to read through the seder. It has to be English, positive, uplifting, talk about Pesach in some way, and interesting. Preferably published in the past year. (E.G.: Let My Nation Go)

    2. I love Rabbi Yigal Ariel’s seforim on Nach. He weaves Midrash, meforshim, secular education, and the modern world into a beautiful tapestry. (at the risk of sounding cliche) I read the one on Shmuel and Daniel, am up to the early chapters of Esther. (Daniel and Esther are printed together as ??? ????.) Is it possible to get them in softcover? It is hard for me to take them so I can read while commuting.

    There are some really goood haggadas out there that have commentaries in english. Rabbi Yechiel Spero has one called Touched by the Seder, Rabbi Twerski has one called From Bondage to Freedom,The Sfas Emes Haggada etc. the list goes on.

    To read through the seder? Why dont you just give up and go to sleep instead? Instead of zechiras yetzias mitrayyim you can be yotze actual yetzias hashibud, which has to be a higher level.

    Yeshivaguy: We have the Sfas Emes Hagada, and enjoy it very much. We also have the one by Rabbi Spero. It’s great. I think we even have the one by Rabbi Twerski but will go check. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Saysme: Thanks! You’re on the right track because that was my Seder book last year, I couldn’t recall the name. 🙂 I enjoyed the novelization very much, it was different from any other Pesach book I have ever read. Any other suggestions?

    Squeak: I love the Sedorim, but our Seder is a little long for me, and I start to fall asleep. If I have an interesting book to read it keeps me up so people don’t have to keep on waking me when we’re up to the next part.

    I have lost my faith in you CR people.

    No one gave me any good recommendations. Because of you, I will have to take not one but 3 books to the Seder (The Young Moses, Prince of Egypt by Marcus Lehman, Let my nation go, and Dual Identity.)

    I also use 3 haggados (one with Hebrew short vertlach, one with English stories, and one with lots of pictures.)

    I really don’t like being bored. 🙂

    It worked out well. I highly recommend the Marcus Lehmann Hagada.
