The Man in the Ceiling (Michael Di Capua Books) - book cover picture

This is an absolutely wonderful work of art! The poignant story of a boy's discovery of his own ability to push past failures to accomplish something difficult is studded with laugh-out-loud portraits of family members, and hilarious episodes of family life. It is filled with truth and love. And the cartoons and illustrations are an entirely wonderful addition to the story. They are excellent in their own right, and add immeasurably to the tale.My daughter picked this book out of the library at random, was glued to it for a day, and told me I should read it. Boy, was she right! Try it, and see if you don't come up laughing and crying at the end.

Love Thy Neighbor : A Story of War - book cover picture

Peter Maass presents a chilling story about the horrors of the War in Yugoslavia and his terrifying moments as a journalist covering another episode of man's inhumanity to man, ethnic cleansing, murder, war. This book haunted my sleep and changed my life. After reading Maass' book, I was driven to visit Sarajevo, Karlowac, Srjebenica. My life will never be the same. As Americans, we repeatedly, through history, have looked the other way while genocide destroys cultures. Peter Maass brings the nightmare of ethnic cleansing to the reader in ways that creep through the comforts of your life. READ IT, you will never stand by quietly again!

Something Borrowed - book cover picture

With keen observations, finely drawn characters and a great premise, I flew through this book. While you'd think you'd dislike a woman who has an affair with her best friend's fiance, somehow Giffin pulls it off and actually had me rooting for Rachel. It helped that Darcy was such an unlikeable person I had to wonder why on earth Rachel was friends with her at all. Although I thought a few scenes dragged on too long, and Darcy was too over the top at times to be believable (her pregnancy), I'd recommend this book.

Earl Scruggs and the 5-String Banjo: Revised and Enhanced Edition - Book with CD - book cover picture

I have used this book ever since I can remember. It takes you from starting out on the banjo, like learning which string is what, and brings you up to playing with confidence. It also helps you to have fun not only with the banjo, but also with other musicians. This book not only deals with how to play the banjo, but also takes you through some of the history of it. This book also shows you how to make your own banjo. This gives you even more insight for your playing. This is truly one of the GREAT books of the 5 string banjo. I heartily recommend it for anyone that wants not only to learn to play the banjo, but also for anyone that wants to learn about this great American instrument.

Master of the Senate: The Years of Lyndon Johnson - book cover picture

Robert Caro's "Master of the Senate" is the third volume in his Lyndon Johnson series. He is a master storyteller. This volume not only covers his years in the Senate (1948 - 1960) but gives a history of the Senate and how it works. He fleshes out the supporting cast of Senators and brings us inside the Senate cloakroom as history is being made with the Civil Rights legislation of 1957. The writing is suberb. Caro may be the best writer (of any kind) in America today. I'm ready for Volume 4. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

A Wrinkle in Time: And Related Readings (Literature Connections) - book cover picture

I'm 32 years old, and I don't have a single friend who doesn't list this as one of their very favorite childhood books. Upon re-reading it, I'm amazed at how well it stands up. Meg's brother Charles is still annoying, but Meg herself is still marvelously complex and human. And I love how L'Engle firmly believes children can handle the biggest of concepts -- good vs. evil, theoretical physics, the idea of God. a wonderful, wonderful book.

The Lovely Bones: A Novel - book cover picture

I don't know who Alice Sebold is, or even what she has written before, but I know that I will be recommending this book to everyone that cares to hear it from me. This is such a lovely story about an awful thing. Does that make sense? The unique point of view (Susie speaks from heaven, of course) and the author's down to earth style make this a wonderful read. I literally lost sleep because of this book. I was up way too late several nights in a row reading, and even had some dreams about heaven as a result of it.What else can I say, except you will love the characters in this story, you will look at things around you in a different way as you work through this story, and you will tell people about it any chance you can get. I will look forward to reading anything that I can find by this author.

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Vintage) - book cover picture

I can't understand how anyone would find this book boring or uninteresting. Yes, it is a roughly day by day account of Eggars life as he grew up, but it's incredibly interesting and fun to read. He has a unique style of writing and it seems as if he is just telling you a story. Not everyone deserves to have a book about them, but Eggars really does. The characters were so fun to read about (I hope he writes another so I can find out how Toph is doing) that I was happy to think that they were all real people. It will make you think about how things can change in a persons life. What if his mother hadn't died and he wouldn't have had to take care of Toph? It's amazing how he balances personal life with his friends and job. This is a great book and if you don't take it too seriously you will really like it.

Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Acheiving Your Ideal Weight - book cover picture

There is nothing hard about following the plan for my particular blood type. I don't feel like I am missing anything! I have subsituted the Ezekiel bread for the wheat bread and the pounds have dropped off. Giving up the wheat seems to be the key factor to my individual weight loss. This is an eating plan I can live with for life. I weight train approximately 3 times a week, and in the 4 months I have been following the plan, I have gone from a size 12 to a 10 and am about 5 pounds away from my ideal weight goal. The ironic part is that a "prospective" boyfriend gave me the book because he thought I needed to loose a few pounds. We no longer communicate. If he could only see me now! I recommend this book to any and everyone who is serious about loosing and keeping the weight off.

I picked up the paperback in a drugstore rack in the 80's during a snowstorm. Sent home from work, I devoured it at one sitting. I usually avoid Sci-Fi stuff because it's often long on detail but short on character development and plot. This book spoke to me like no other novel in years. I immediately went out and bought a second copy for my brother who handed it around the family. I bought another for a friend who seemed stuck in mid-life crises. His also made the rounds. I bought a hardcover for myself because mine was tattered after the 2nd reading. Like a fool, I lent it to someone and never got it back. I've since bought myself another paper copy plus several more as gifts. It's a classic - well written, a sense of immediacy in the exposition of the plot as well as a great feeling of closure at the end. A terrific read!
