Gold of Troy - book cover picture

I think an earlier review was somewhat mistaken... this is essentially an exhibit catalog of one of the most famous treasure hoards around. The treasure created an international sensation when it was found at the ruins of Troy. But the hoard vanished from Berlin at the end of WWII. It has been rediscovered in Russia, and is open to inspection at long last. The photography is first rate, and while some of the treasures aren't as spectacular as the finds from Tutankhamen's tomb, they have a romance all their own. Fascinating for all those who have been drawn to the story of the Trojan War.

A beautiful classic prayerbook

Book of Common Prayer (1979, Personal Size Economy, Black) - book cover picture

This edition of the classic 1662 Prayerbook is beautifully illustrated, giving it the perfect feel for mediation and contemplation. It includes the entire BCP with the exception of the Psalter, the Ordinal, the prayers on the anniversary of the Sovereign's accession, and the lectionary for the daily office. With these minor deficiencies noted, you should not be disappointed. The text is beautiful and immortal, and a treasure trove of inspiration. If you don't want it for mediation, then it is worth it to own one of the great classics of all time.

The High Rise Glorious Skittle Skat Roarious Sky Pie Angel Food Cake - book cover picture

I was given The High Rise Glorious Skittle Skat Roarious Sky Pie Angel Food Cake for my seventh birthday (which was about eight years ago) and it still has a special place on my bookshelf. Every few months, I take it down, read, and find something new in it. The story is sweet, innocent and capivating all at the same time. The intricate pictures are beautiful beyond words; they represent a merging of the real and imaginary. Every one, child or adult, should own this book. It is happiness in paperback.

Exceeding The Boundaries: Understanding Exceptional Lives - book cover picture

This is the text I used in my graduate studies at Arizona State University. It is an excellent book--very well orangized and easy to read. It was used for grad students as well as undergraduates. It provides a comprehensive overview for all the exceptionalities of students. Each chapter provides the following: historical overview, definition of the disability, characteristics, causes, incidence and prevalence, assessment, classroom adaptations and modifications, family perspectives, current issues and future trends. Each chapter ends with a five-minute summary and study questions. This is one of the better textbooks I have used in my studies.

Hard Eight : A Stephanie Plum Novel (A Stephanie Plum Novel) - book cover picture

I always knew there was some benefit to living on this side of the itnernational dateline - HARD EIGHT hit the book stores yesterday morning and I finished it this morning. Mind you, I probably need to go back and reread it since I was just so compelled to turn the pages that my eyeballs could hardly keep up. I really did enjoy this book: Scariest bad guy since Ramirez roamed the earth, an endearing lawyer (yes, really!) and the usual wonderful cast of characters. Do I comment on the Joe vs Ranger debate? Nope, I give away nothing but suffice to say I am satisfied and Stephanie (lucky girl) certainly seems to be.Janet E. has managed to find(in my opinion) a way to make everyone happy! Must admit I wondered if it could be done but it sure does work for me. Happy day for all Plum fans!

Another strong Poirot mystery

Book title: Death in the Clouds

Death in the Clouds - book cover picture

Murder committed on board an airplane! Agatha Christie was certainly fond of unusual plot twists - murders committed on luxury trains, during card games, killers who killed in alphabetical order, but this one takes the cake! An old woman is mysteriously killed by a poisoned dart and suspicion naturally falls on her fellow passengers. Of course, Poirot who was on board, is called upon to find the guilty party. I found the way he meticulously traces the victim's life and tries to find linkages between her and the passengers interesting, it's much more realistic than detectives who are able to miraculously solve crimes seated in their armchairs! I also found the characters in the book very interesting, particularly that of Jane Grey. The twist at the end is fairly unexpected and the story is resolved in a satisfying way. A nice touch is the addition of a little romance that lightens up the proceedings. A very good read!

Spells of Enchantment: The Wondrous Fairy Tales of Western Culture - book cover picture

i love fairy tale compliations because they are great to set your mind at ease after a long day. this one is particularly good. the stories are from authors such as Jean-Jacque Rosseau, Oscar Wilde, Mark Twain, William Hawthorne, and so on. It's a who's who from classical to comtemporary authors, political figures, and philosophers. Because of the variety of contributors, each story is very different, smart and compelling in it's own right. the stories range from about 5 pages to over 30. it is definately not a children's fairy book, but can awaken and inspire the child in all of us. because it includes about 60 different tales, it can be reread time and time again. just a great book to have around.

Wonderful and Amazing

The Red Tent : A Novel - book cover picture

Yes, this book may not be exactly in alignment with the Bible-but the author states this upfront. It is an amazing book about women of a different time, their sisterhood and their hardships. One of the best books I have ever read. It might have been better if the author hadn't connected this book to any characters in the Bible-then some of the reveiwers of this text just just RELAX! They worshipped idols because the majority of people did not know about the Christian God and this is extremely early in the Bible (Genesis when it would have taken place) It is an amazing book about women-a voice almost completely left out of the Bible and a refeshing look about "what was really going on" in those times. A MUST READ!

The Encyclopedia of Country Music: The Ultimate Guide to the Music - book cover picture

I work as a DJ at a country radio station and I produce and host a weekly classic country program. I needed a book that provided a good bit of general information about a wide variety of singers and groups without a lot of useless information and what not -- this book has exceeded my expectations! As an "encyclopedia," this isn't something that you read cover-to-cover, but anyone who has ever belted-out a note of country music can be found with just the right amount of information. If you are looking for a country music reference book, this is it!

Swim with the Sharks - book cover picture

... This book, for me, was a guide in how to conduct myself in this difficult environment in an ethical manner, yet still succeed. I'll never forget reading the maxim, "Don't get mad, DON'T get even". After observing the behavior of those around me, many from the nation's top B schools, I was stunned to read this. They don't teach these types of ethics in MBA school. Anyway, I was dumbfounded when I read this simple rule, but Mackay deftly explains how this will not only help you rationalize your situation, but actually excel in this environment. This is just one example. The book lays out Mackay's extremely wise philosophy. It is important to read this book and learn how to work with the sharks, reduce your anxiety, create win-win situations, and not be eaten.
