Interview with the Vampire : Anniversary edition (The vampire chronicles) - book cover picture

Anne Rice's fascinating novel catapulted her into literary superstardom and redefined the vampire for the modern age. A trio of vampires--Lestat, comfortable with his nature and capable of reveling in his power and cruelty; Louis, conflicted by his dark cravings but unable to resist them; and Claudia, tortured by being forever trapped in the body of a six-year-old girl--provide the prism through which we are introduced to a meticulously crafted vampire underworld that exists parallel to our own. Those who are put off by the dark, mopey, tragically romantic, gothic cliche that the vampire has become should not be deterred from reading this book, even though it is responsible for launching that cliche. Rice's prose is lovely and there is much interesting contemplation on the nature of evil and redemption. Not to mention a great story as well.

Shortest Distance Between You and a Published Book - book cover picture

As a struggling writer with no knowledge of the publishing industry or all of the facets that accompany the actual writing of the book, I found Susan Page's book to be exactly what I needed to truly wade through the complicated world of moving from a "writer" to a "published author".Her advice is timeless and valuable. I don't think I'd have made it past my manuscript, my various poems, and collections of journaling, and actually be on my way to publishing a book of my own without reading The Shortest Distance...

Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right - book cover picture

This book is both hysterical and infuriating. Hysterical for Al Franken's wit, infuriating because of the truth he tells and that nobody who needs to read this book really will, or will take it seriously. His dissection of Wellstone's funeral and the circus surrounding it is both touching and frustrating, as is his analysis of the press coverage surrounding the Bush and Gore campaigns in 2000. It's worth buying the book for those passages alone. Franken's dissection of Ann Coulter is also great and screamingly funny.I particularly enjoyed the reviewer on this site who stated that *Franken* had brought political discourse in this country to a new low with this book.

When Food Is Love : Exploring the Relationship Between Eating and Intimacy - book cover picture

Geneen Roth has a handle on what the problems concerned with compulsive eating are all about like no one else I've ever heard or read. She has been there. I have discovered so many things I never knew about myself from reading this book. After being a compulsive eater most of my 47 years, I am understanding for the first time in my life why I do the things I do, that I am not the only person to ever be abused, that there is help and hope out there. I have already stopped feeling panicky about eating and about food. I've never been touched by an author as I have been by this one. I think the only way to stop any compulsive behavior is to first understand it. An amazing, amazing effort by a woman truly anointed to stand in the office of teacher of how to heal your broken, addicted soul. Thanks to Geneen, I'm on a journey back to myself.

Neighborly Love

The New Girl (Young Mandie Mystery #2) - book cover picture

This book gives us a glimps of what neighborly love and kindness use to be like. The character, Mandie, has a sweet heart and curious nature. There is a new girl in town,and Mandie is set on making friends with her. The setting is a small rural town. The story was like reading a "Little House on the Prairie" saga. I was surprised the way the book took off in an unsuspected twist. The book is a quick and interesting read. My 7 & 10 year old daughters liked it so much, they have asked for the next book, "The Mystery at Miss Abigail's". I liked the book because it showed my girls a compassionate way to help a family.

The Scarlet Pimpernel (Puffin Classics - the Essential Collection) - book cover picture

You can read a true review from the others----but in this case, the story is honestly, mostly about the marriage between a man and a woman, Lord and Lady Percy Blakeney. The conflict between them and the conflict of the French Republic. There is a lot on feelings and emotions---skip over that whole lot and you've got a darned skinny book. But the characters are good, its too bad there not fleshed out enough; however, they are intriguing. Who is the Scarlet Pimpernel? I'm sure we all know, but reading the true story makes it all the more wonderful to discover again.

Make Your Own Web Page! a Guide for Kids - book cover picture

I bought this book at my sixth grade book fair at my school. It was my first introduction to HTML and web design, and I've been constantly designing websites ever since. The book is fun to read and is easy to follow, and within a week I had a website already created that had my personal picture, my personal biography, and my favorite links. I showed it to my teacher at school and impressed her quite a bit :) Now I'm building websites constantly (...). I highly, highly recommend this book for kids and adults alike!

I Dreamed of Africa (tie-in edition) - book cover picture

This book is the type of rare work that draws its readers into a whole other world by making them see and feel everything that the storyteller does. We become almost a part of the life of this extraordinary woman and her passion not only for Kenya and Africa but simply for life and living. Each one of us dreams of some place or ideal as we grow, but few of us are fortunate or determined enough to turn those dreams into realities and go on to live them. Kuki Gallman along with her husband and children shows us what it is like to achieve and live our dreams and at what cost our dreams sometimes come. "I Dreamed of Africa" is a lyrical, magical account of one woman, her family, and the people and customs of the last continent in our world that truly has a soul. The message of this book and Kuki's continuing mission to preserve that world will stay with all who read it and they will be better for it.

A Place of Execution - book cover picture

A girl is reported missing by her stepfather who also happens to be the squire of the very insular village of Scardale, where she lives. The officer in charge of the investigation is a young Inspector named George Bennett. It is early in Bennett's career, so this could be a make or break case for him. Because of this, he is determined to find out what really happened, leading us on a relentless pursuit of the truth. Unfortunately, the villagers of Scardale are not very forthcoming when it comes to information, almost to the point where it seems they don't want the girl found.This is an extremely intriguing plot that relentlessly drew me in as evidence slowly came to light. I found myself guessing first one conclusion, then another and still found room for another twist in the tale.

Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants) - book cover picture

The begining was very *complicated*. If u stopped reading this book because of the begining, you should have continued. It becomes more clear after 2 chapters.The book's cover and title is VERY CHEEZY, and makes it seem like a book 4 5 year olds. BUT never judge a book by its cover!! The plot is about four girls - Carmen, Libby, Bridgete, and Lena. Carmen buys a *magical* pair of pants at a thrift store and they all try it on. IT FITS ALL OF THEM, EVEN BIG-BUTTED CARMEN!LOLAnyway, they all go to different places for vacation and they all want to take the pants along. They make up a set of *cheesy* rules and decided how's going to get them and when. **TIP: Lenas and Bridgetes adventures are the best ones**Reccomendation: If you like Harry Potter type magic *cough, cough, LOL, cough, choke* DON'T read this book and get special help. Don't read this if u r over 15 ;)
