20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a great book. It takes place inFrance when a "whale" starts attacking ships. SoProf. Aronnax sets out to rid the seas of this whale with his loyal servant Conseil and a harpooner by the name of Ned Land.But...end up as crew of a subarine called the Nautilus, the "whale" depicted by sailors. The captain,known as Captain Nemo, brings them through many adventures. Some include visiting the lost city of Atlantis,And even finding a lost continent! Jules Verne is my favorite author and I would recommend any book by him.

The Lady Who Liked Clean Restrooms: The Chronicle of One of the Strangest Stories Ever to Be Rumoured About Around New York - book cover picture

My book group read this and though it was certainly the shortest book we have read, it led to the longest discussion we've ever had. The protagonist is a women whose husband leaves her for a younger woman. Because of this and some bad decisions on her part she loses her house, country club membership, friends, kids...status in her community and ends up living in a small room in New York, working at a store for minimum wage. She is miserable. Through a very unusual series of events, she regains her wealth only to realize that it's not the money that made her happy, it was her former life and she can not have that back. The ending leaves you thinking for a long, long time. This book is written as the woman thinks and Donleavy's writing style is hard to get used to at first. It is almost as if you are inside her head. This is a book to pass along to friends so that you can talk about it for hours.

Book title: The Meaning of Anxiety
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
The Meaning of Anxiety - book cover picture

This scholarly yet extremely accesible study of anxiety--from philosophical, social, theological, literary, cultural as well as biological perspectives--was first published in 1950, and updated by May in 1977. It is still the widest-ranging, richest, most intelligent and insightful exploration of anxiety currently available in one volume. In this postmodern era of hyperbiologism (which presumes anxiety and other symptoms to hold only physical meaning) and resulting wildly popular pharmacological treatments for anxiety, May reminds readers that anxiety has much more than mere biochemical causes and physiological significance: anxiety, insists May, is not necessarily pathological, but rather, a meaningful, necessary, vital and ultimately inextricable aspect of human existence.

Thanks to an incredible author,Sue Harrison,I found myself thinking about this book's characters and adventures even after I'd read into the next book. Her books are masterfully researched and the life of Chagak has the reader enduring her pain, her happiness and love, and her ability to never give up. Sue allows you walk in the characters shoes and you can believe you're right there with them.Two Thumbs Up to a fantastic author!

Jack & Jill (Alex Cross Novels) - book cover picture

I discovered James Patterson a couple of years ago when I was looking for a "beach book" & picked up "Spider". I was enthralled! I have become a fan & have read everything he has written since. "Jack & Jill" is the most suspenseful book he has written yet. A real page-turner, I could not put it down. I am looking forward to "Cat & Mouse", as well as the large screen version of "Jack & Jill." Enjoy....

Standing in the Light: The Captive Diary of Catharine Carey Logan (Dear America) - book cover picture

Catharine Carey Logan, or better known a Catey, is a Quaker girl living in the Delaware Valley, Pennsylvania. Catey and her family are frightened by reports of Indian raids, but they believe that the Indians will leave them alone if they show trust and love to them.
That all changes when Catey and her brother Tomas are captured while on their way to school.
Catey is determined not to keep the Indian ways, but she finds herself liking it after a while. And she falls in love with an Indian brave named Snow Hunter who was actually a captive white like her. But when given the chance to go back to her village, will Catey follow the leading of her heart?I absolutely love this book. Even though it's sad enough to make you want to cry, it possesses a sort of charm that keeps you reading till the end.
I felt so sorry for Catey. And you will too, once you read this book. I won't spill the beans regarding the ending, so you'll just have to read it your self. I promise you, you won't be sorry!

A touching story that moved me deeply

Book title: Anna Is Still Here
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Anna Is Still Here - book cover picture

I thought that "Anna Is Still Here" by Ida Vos was a moving novel that told a story of a Jewish family torn apart during the war and their struggle after the completion of the war. Ida Vos gave such realistic personality traits to each character that I found myself feeling a strange closeness to each. It seemed the more I read the more I felt each characters' emotions. I highly recommend this novel to anyone that enjoys piercingly realistic stories and also to those that like to read books that touch your heart and your soul and leave you a changed person.

Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson - book cover picture

I read this book because I was looking for grief books and the bookstore salesperson pointed it out as a good book. I read the book, not as a manual on dealing with death, but as an interesting story of friends and their impending loss.
I found that Mitch picked up on some interesting points as well as some minor ones that many of us would miss. Mitch kept bringing Morrie food even when Morrie wasn't eating much. We all try to continue to act how we wish it would be or hoped it could be. We try to make things remain as normal as possible and it is hard to adjust to the change especially when we know we are going to lose someone.
Pick this book up because it is a good read.
I also would recommend, Healing Stories of Grief and Faith, From Denial and Despair to Comfort and Peace to those experiencing grief.

Captured my imagination and never let go

Book title: Nine Princes In Amber
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
Nine Princes In Amber - book cover picture

Nine Princes in Amber is the first of the original five books in the Amber series. I have reread this series several times and each time it recaptures my imagination like few stories ever have. The unique nature of the universe Zelazny created, the twisting plots, the engaging noir/fantasy characters and the sweeping scope are guaranteed to impress any fan of fantasy or Sci-Fi.

You will come to know the members of the royal family of Amber in great detail and you will love and hate them. The story will keep you guessing and the action is well paced. Zelazny is a tight writer and keeps things moving.

These days I hear the Amber series described as a ten book series. This isn't accurate, it is composed of two five book series and the less said about the later five books the better. The first five books dealing with Corwin are a complete story that simply must be read.

You owe it to yourself to read the five books of the original Amber series.
