Examples of amazing but still accessible writing?

I'm not a smart man. But I do enjoy well written things. But well written books, poems, articles or whatever sometimes seem to be to hard to get into. Anyhow I would love to have examples of what people find to be amazing, creative and perhaps unique in the form of the written word. I don't care if it is famous or not. The best of the best of accessible yet amazingly written works. Thanks!

Wedding Reading both for, and about, sisters

Asking for a friend: She has been asked to do a reading at her sister's wedding in a few weeks. She does not want to use anything biblical or from Shakespeare. Rhyming is ok, but it doesn't have to, and not epically long. The important and tricky part - she'd like it to be on the theme of sisters, but wedding appropriate. Help?

Combining art forms

Could anybody suggest titles of books that are collections of prose (fiction)/poetry and photographs/drawings? Books along the lines of, say, Eduardo Galeano's "The Book of Embraces" which has short compositions about various topics and simple, yet pleasing, drawings. Thanks!
