The Gift of Peace (Illinois) - book cover picture

Cardinal Bernardin honored us all with this book. He reveals his personal struggles with a humiliating false accusation, a devastating diagnosis of cancer, and, almost miraculously, it comes as close to a man's account of his own death as we can get. He closes the book just days before he died and writes of knowing that he will die. And yet there is nothing creepy about reading it. The reader can only hope and pray that he or she will meet adversity, even death, with the courage and compassion of Cardinal Bernardin. His relaxed and intimate writing style add to this fine memoir. Among the most powerful spiritual writings I've encountered.

I know I'm Not The Only Gay Jew

The Same Embrace - book cover picture

As a gay jewish man who grew up outside of Boston, what can I say...I LOVED THIS BOOK! Okay, I am an only child, and this work centers on two twin brothers, not something I thought I could relate too, but the basic emotions and search for love and acceptance cut through that. Narrated by Jacob, the gay brother, we learn about teh close bond he shares with his brother Jonathan. ALthough they look alike, they are very different...What was revealed about the family's history in WWII in Nazi Germany shocked me, and that was when the book really kicks in...This is a must read for any gay jew out there. And if you have ever been curious about jewish religion and history, regardless if you are gay or straight, I believe you will throroughly love this book!

This book is undoubtedly the best book about the Baudelaire orphans yet. In this book, the orphans Violet, Klaus, and Sunny are forced to attend boarding school by the unhelpful banker who is in charge of their parent's affairs Mr. Poe. When they get to the school, they become a little reluctant to enter it. The buildings are shaped like gravestones and the motto is 'remember you will die'. Luckily, they meet some friends: Duncan and Isadora Quagmire. They are identical triplets and their parents and third triplet Quigley died in a fire. This school has terrible rules, mean punishments, bad violin playing, and Carmelita Spats. Definetly 2 thumbs up, 5 stars, and the best Baudelaire book ever.

Living in an area where liberal thinking is the norm and anyone with a conservative view is riduculed and made to feel he is shouting in the wilderness, I was both pleased and relieved to learn that there is at least one other person out there who believes just as I: the erosion of moral and ethical standards is the result of "a systematic attack on the primacy of facts and logic over emotions and feelings."If I could write, this is the book I would write. But alas...I encourage all to take the Jersey City High School admissions exam and the voter registration test to learn just how low we've falling in our values and standards.About this book I say, "AMEN!"

The Concubine's Children - book cover picture

I may be a white, teenaged, american male, but I still can appreciate the value and hard work that went into this book.This book was absolutely wonderful in that it covered the family history so well, leaving out very few details, even though it was all put together by word of mouth, letters and photographs!This must have been an extremely difficult book to write for all parties involved, and for that the author and her relatives have my deepest respect. This book is absolutely beautiful and represents Chinese culture very clearly and in an interesting manner. I would recommend this book to ANYBODY

I have read this book 5 times now. I live in New Orleans and find this to be a truth to what this city is truly like. I laugh out loud at Ignatious! And, if you can believe it, New Orleans built a statue in dedication of him. HAHA! It's actually a true story. The writer committed suicide after finishing it. His mother found the transcripts underneath his bed and published it. If you want a good description of New Orleans with a twist you have to read this! It's execelent!

I know that Toni Morrison is all the rage right now, what with her status as Oprah's favorite writer. But don't limit yourself to reading only the books that Oprah suggests. My favorite Morrison book has not been a part of Oprah's Book Club (yet), but is so powerful and poignant that it prompted me to take a road trip to Ohio to see the city where the narrator and her friends (and enemies -- sometimes one and the same) grew up. This is a beautiful book of friendship, families, racism, love, hate, and confusion.

Literature Guide: Out of the Dust (Grades 4-8) - book cover picture

Out of the Dust was an exteremly good book. It was about a 13 year old girl who went through a tremendous amount of pain. Billie Jo's mother dies from just a big accident. Billie places the blame squarely upon her own shoulders. Billie Jo was also in the accident and has become scarred for life. She is unable to do the only thing she truly loved doing, playing the piano. Even after she has healed from the accident she just is hurt too much my the memory of her mother to even try to start over. Billie also feels as if she has been left alone by her father because she doesn't think he cares for her. This book is a powerful story of a girl who uses her strength, courage, and love to overcome all obstacles in her way.

-Strap those Shakers into your pyro, load that Gauss cannon! PREPARE FOR DESCENT!-Descent is one of the BEST books I have ever read. Being an addicted Descent player and having a site about Descent, I felt compelled to read it as soon as I heard it existed! Its really detailed, and gives me a new feel for the Descent world, now when I play the game, I always sorta think of it as a story :)I read it in 3 days, and cant wait for Stealing Thunder!! Even if you havnt ever played the game, its so descriptive that you wont miss a thing! I recommend this book to any serious Descenter or someone just looking to read a GREAT Sci-Fi Book!Amazing Book, Congrats and Thanks, Peter! [PTMC Transmition Ended] {TySoft OUT}

5 stars for lightwave maybe a 2 for 3DSMax.

Book title: 3D Modeling and Surfacing
Rating: 5/5
Binding: Paperback
3D Modeling and Surfacing - book cover picture

This is a great book but I believe it is geared more toward Lightwave. I use 3D Studio Max I like just got and I'm beginning this book gives you great ideas on what to use Polygons, nurbs, metaballs etc for but when you get into the walkthroughs it is in Lightwave terminology. Not everyone would know what to tool to use (because it has a different name in lightwave) especially since this book goes towards beginners. If you got Lightwave beginner go get it if you have Max you can get it but you won't understand all of the tools. If you do get it for Max and you need help with the tools mentioned in the book go to the 3dsource.com messageboard they should be able to help.Best, Braden
